The 7th Annual PM360 Trailblazers Awards Gala
Let’s just call it what it was: FUN! This year’s Trailblazers Awards Gala was one we’re not even sure how we’ll top next year. Held again at the architecturally stunning Gotham Hall, on September 25, PM360’s red carpet was once again rolled out to laud the healthcare industry’s best and brightest. And they arrived in droves, battling street closures and travel delays (Pope Francis was in town!) and were well rewarded for their efforts, not to mention their stunning accomplishments during the past year.
We all had much to celebrate this year—and even had a few firsts, among them: A first time-ever tie between two Innovation Brand Champions; a new award for Rare Diseases Brand Champion; and an Emmy-award winning, actress, writer, comedian (and more) emcee, Judy Gold, who kept the house rocking with laughter throughout the evening.
Pharma witnessed many big changes this past year. Everyone who joined us demonstrated the ability to pivot to meet new marketplace demands. They’ve put patients first. They’ve educated physicians. They’ve given back to their communities. They are all winners. Recognizing this is exactly what Trailblazers is all about. Congratulations to all!
PM360 Trailblazer Gala Best Dressed
We thought last year’s Trailblazer attendees were dressed to the nines! But this year the crowd hit double digits for fashion sense. Formal—and wonderfully colorful—attire never looked so good, and all the little details far surpassed the glamour mark. The Trailblazer throng simply stunned in ensembles by Alice + Olivia, BCBG, French Connection—not to mention Brooks Brothers, Vera Wang and Tallia (check out our men in “All Bow-Tied Up” below)—and a host of other well-known, fashion-forward designers. If this is any indication of how our industry dresses for success and celebration, we can’t wait to see how next year’s Trailblazers will top this!
