Social Media Advertising Workshop


Join us for this new workshop to learn how to apply PAGB’s codes and guidelines on social media for OTC medicines, medical devices and food supplements.

This training programme has been developed based on PAGB’s recently updated positions and includes new examples.  The session was first launched as part of PAGB’s Digital Week and presents an excellent opportunity to ensure that you’re up to date on the current application of the guidance.

  • Clearly identifying ads
  • Fulfilling EI and NHCR requirements
  • Celebrities and influencers
  • Working with HCPs
  • Reviews and testimonials

Who should attend?

A ‘must-attend’ workshop for people working in an advertising or marketing role for OTC medicines products, and their suppliers and agencies. Anyone with an interest in the self-regulation of OTC medicines advertising (e.g. regulators, other trade associations).


The workshop is delivered by members of the PAGB advertising services team who use a combination of presentations and case studies during the sessions and encourage interaction and questions. You’ll receive copies of the presentations, practical examples and other useful materials to take away, and we’ll send you a certificate of attendance after the event.
