According to Fortune, ASCO has “ballooned into one of the most — if not the single most — significant biopharma convention in recent years.” Given the tremendous size of the meeting and scope of news and data consistently anticipated, “being seen” at ASCO can be a major challenge.

  1. One size does not fit all
  2. Consider the big picture
  3. Make the most of curtain raisers
