This year’s ASAP European Alliance Summit scheduled for Nov. 3-4 hosted at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, England, should be particularly interesting given the recent news of the United Kingdom’s vote to depart from the European Union. How it might impact European alliances is certain to be addressed in the packed schedule of sessions and speakers with the Summit theme “The New Ecosystem for Partnerships.” The joint venture between ASAP and Thought Leader Global provides alliance managers in Europe and elsewhere with a window into the most current and cutting edge developments in their industries, as well as the latest in cross-industry partnering in an evolving ecosystem heavily impacted by trends taking place in the Internet of Things (IoT), healthcare, smart cities, the cloud, automotive trends, telecom, digital, and other areas.


Session speakers are being drawn from a pool of 30 directors of strategic alliances, multi- and cross-industry collaborators,  and collaboration business gurus.  Participants are free to choose sessions from two different streams of presentations throughout the conference.  The event will include at least 30 case study presentations, representation from over 15 different countries and over 10 different industries – from biopharma/life sciences, to energy, consumer goods, manufacturing, and technology.
