NEW YORK -- June 25, 2013

At the 2013 European Pharmaceutical Marketing Research Association (EphMRA)
conference, GfK will chair discussions on two key industry issues: medical
device design and fieldwork. EphMRA 2013 – on the theme “Shaping the Future:
New Directions in Research” – will be held in London on June 25 to 27, 2013.

GfK’s Chris Krattiger from GfK Switzerland will co-chair an interactive
session on the 26^th entitled “Spotlight on Fieldwork – Opportunities and
Challenges.” The discussion will feature speakers from client companies,
full-service agencies, fieldwork agencies, and organizations, and will cover
opportunities, challenges, and solutions in fielding research.

And on the 27^th, Krattiger will chair a session entitled “How to Open a
Carton of Soup,” on how to use market research to design user-friendly medical
devices – and what the pharmaceutical industry can learn from the medical
device industry.

Krattiger has been with GfK since 2001, following the acquisition of Research
Matters. Earlier, Krattiger spent nine years at I+G Suisse, where she managed
pharmaceutical market research projects, with a specialization in oncology and
