What we do

Hanson Wade gives people the clarity to see where opportunity lies. We work in highly specialised fields to provide unmatched depth and quality of content. We work in sectors where quality of information is the difference between success and failure. Enabling growth is at the heart of what we do.

Hanson Wade conferences span high growth fields from pioneering life science, to technology-augmented construction, to radical change in HR. We run events globally, across a huge variety of topics. Our conferences are built where rapid change leads to greater opportunity for those that are most informed.

Hanson Wade's Beacon product is a world class data, research and insight platform. The clinical intelligence it provides shapes the R&D decisions of scientists across the Pharmaceutical industry. Beacon's modular design ensures that each data set provides a level of specificity and accessibility not available anywhere else.

Bespoke events offer the opportunity for our partners to customize their event experience. Private masterminds, exclusive dinners, breakfast briefings - choosing the right setting and designing the right agenda is key to a successful meeting. Highly curated these stand alone meetings allow for a sharp focus on a critical issue or market dynamic.


At the heart of everything we do is our ability to find the right people. Those who inspire the most commercially valuable outcomes.

For every problem there are people working on the solution, but separately. Different countries, different industries and simply unaware of each other. We find the people who are solving the most important and most complex commercial problems.

Our goal is to find the right mix of people to solve the issue. To bridge the barriers that separate them and to find solutions.


We talk to hundreds of people a month. All over the world and in a huge number of industries. Our team is expert in distilling huge volumes of information into real insight. The quality of our research means everything to the quality of our events.

We listen to what people say, and often what they don’t say, to select critical issues from the noise. The issues that will really allow this drug class to progress, this oil well to operate more safely or this business to develop talent better.

That means selecting the people and issues that make the difference.

We live or die by this process. In a connected world information is cheap, but insight is more valuable than ever.


The right people together around the right issue is invaluable, but we know not all time spent together is equal. We create the right atmosphere for our attendees to mix. Ensuring that people’s time together makes a difference.

That might mean guiding the way a speaker presents, changing the way a panel runs or creating an environment that stimulates debate.

Our goal is to create a genuine connection. The skill, passion and dedication of our attendees takes care of the rest.

The Hanson Wade team is characterised by inspirational people who design events to make a difference, united by our passion for what we do.

Every Wader believes that the right connections can change a person, a business or a whole industry for the better.

We have seen first hand the results achieved when driven people are brought together around a common goal. New ideas, new partnerships – progress. The collaboration of our customers at events genuinely excites us. As do the results achieved by their combined innovation, insight and commitment.

Our expertise is in how to find these people, get them together and then create environments that deliver. We know that it’s not just that you get together, it’s how you get together that makes the difference.

Our passion is to become the best in the world in these disciplines, making the largest possible impact on progress and growth. This is reflected in our vision:

“Be the heart of the business community”

The people that change the world are those that are passionate about their purpose. Our passion is to connect groups of people who love what they do.

The people we bring together care deeply about driving their companies and industry forward.

At Hanson Wade we create powerful environments for learning and commercial growth.

We do this through building and sustaining shared communities and conferences for business.

Our passion for what we do drives us to find and connect the right people, the right way, at the right time. We enable you to access the people, ideas and products that make a difference.

What unites the most successful people we work with is the care they put into their work. People who love what they do.

So love what you do is our call to action. If you’re working in a field you’re passionate about, we’d love to work with you.

Hanson Wade DNA underpins everything we do. It forms the key attributes that articulate who we are and how we behave. We have worked hard to capture the traits that have enabled our rapid growth.

We think we’ve got it nailed. When you meet us we hope you’ll see our values in all of us. If you are one of us, we will share the secret with you.

Understanding what makes us successful helps us to be consistent, whatever our roles. It helps us stay on course when we reach a crossroads.

Whether you are a graduate straight out of university or an industry veteran with years of experience, a fit with our culture is our highest priority. It is what will ensure that you thrive at Hanson Wade.

When you get to know us, you’ll know if you’re a Wader.
