The power of one

We know that life sciences need more than a fulfillment supplier. You need a partner who speaks your language: who understands your industry, your compliance requirements, your challenges, your peers and your future. 

Our vast, global experience across the corporate, HCP and patient landscape allows us to bring new energy, strategy and solutions to your travel and meetings program.

Like you, we understand how critical the innovative core is to deliver the right, cost-efficient solutions to those in need.

Life Sciences Center of Excellence

With unique drivers including patient-centricity, regulatory and compliance requirements, we recognize that life sciences cannot be managed as ‘typical’ corporate programs. Given our footprint, expertise and client base, we’ve developed a Life Sciences Center of Excellence that turns our insights into optimization.

Our clients benefit from our rich experience and dedicated expertise in this vertical through best practices, benchmarking and resource intelligence. Life sciences organizations need a different kind of support from program design to technology, traveler experience to consultation. That’s why BCD is working across our organization to provide cohesion of strategy, best practices and consultation to our customers.

Our expanded service offerings, including patient travel, break free from traditional models to further enhance travel programs, leverage cost and improve experience. Our regular connectivity, customer surveys, benchmarking and external validation allow us to deliver to you our learnings from managing more than 100 customers across 40+ therapeutic areas.

Going beyond traditional travel and
meetings management

As a result of more than 30+ years of experience servicing this segment, we intimately understand, and can deliver on, your unique drivers. Our customers expect delivery beyond fulfillment and regard us as strategic, value-creating partners.

We appreciate that no two programs are the same which is why our key benefits and features are entirely customizable to your needs and address both your small and larger challenges.

We service 90%
of the top 20 pharmas


BCD demonstrates strategic leadership, innovation and collaboration that reaches far beyond the confines of traditional travel and meetings management. We applaud BCD for evolving their Life Sciences Center of Excellence during a pandemic, illustrating that their focus on the voice of the customer has not wavered in uncertain times. The heightened focus on patient-centricity shows leadership and is squarely in line with what’s most important to us.
