The first-ever virtual jobs fair targeted toward health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) professionals within the pharmaceutical, health insurance, and biotechnology arena was held on
The recently-held HEOR Career Fair in HE-Xpo® exceeded expectations for visitors and exhibitors, with more than 400 registrants and 15 exhibitors. Exhibitors and conference sponsors included major global pharmaceutical companies (
In a survey of participants and exhibitors conducted by HealthEconomics.Com after the HEOR Career Fair, 83% of respondents were satisfied with the virtual jobs event, and 94% of exhibitors thought the Virtual Career Fair was a positive recruiting tool. Interest in attending future HE-Xpo events was exceptionally high: 89% said they possibly or very likely would attend another virtual event in HE-Xpo®. Ninety-two percent thought the HE-Xpo® Exhibit Hall was the area of most interest and received the greatest attendance, while more than one-half visited the Learning Center to download educational materials from exhibitors and other sources. Almost all participants utilized the online chat tool to interact with each other and network with hiring companies.
Almost 40% of participants spent up to 4 hours in HE-Xpo®, visiting exhibit booths, watching educational videos, or networking. Another 40% spent between 1 and 2 hours. The highest rated reasons for attendance at the HEOR Virtual Career Fair in HE-Xpo® was the ability to attend from the computer without traveling, ability to network, and the flexibility to attend the virtual event for as long as the participant wanted.
Future HE-Xpo® Virtual Meetings include Observational Research Trends and Issues, as well as another HEOR Career Fair Spring 2014. For information about participating in HE-Xpo® as an exhibitor and sponsor, contact
