International experts will deal with another key area for the future of medicine, “Combination products and novel drug delivery systems.” These presentations will constitute an update on the emerging technologies applicable to these healthcare products. They will also cover regulations, a particularly complex theme, as we are reminded by Marielle Fournier, Director, Combination and Borderline Products, Voisin Consulting Life Sciences, France. “The regulatory strategy can be extremely complicated for companies who want to develop in a rationalised manner and target international markets,” she emphasises. Her presentation will give participants a better understanding of the challenges of regulatory strategies, particularly with regard to the choice of medical device during international clinical development.
Another great innovation for the 2012 edition of Pharmapack Europe is the “Tertiary Packaging & Cold Chain” Technical Symposium to be held alongside the conference in the main lecture theatre. This gathering will provide visitors to the event the opportunity to discuss with experts the problems relating to temperature-controlled transportation of medicines, discover innovative packaging solutions and technologies, and benefit from exchanging experiences with various stakeholders from the pharmaceutical distribution chain.
The exhibition continues to attract leading participants
Offering a real window on technologies to complement the conference, the exhibition space at Pharmapack Europe will bring together all the latest innovations, enabling decision-makers from pharmaceutical laboratories, biotech laboratories and the medical industry to benefit, during the two days, from an exhaustive overview of market trends.
Representing a growth in numbers from last year, 260 exhibitors will present their latest developments with product ranges covering all areas, product solutions, technologies and services for the design, development and production of packaging and delivery systems for healthcare products.
In spite of expanding, Pharmapack Europe’s exhibition space maintains its specialist positioning and quality objectives by bringing together companies that are highly specialised in their respective areas. Thanks to this select group of exhibitors, visitors will have the opportunity to meet all their suppliers in one place, as well as meet new partners and keep an eye on the latest technologies in an efficient manner. In addition, in response to visitor and exhibitor wishes, the event remains a manageable size that is conducive to fostering exchange. The dedicated meeting areas at attendee’s disposal will also enable you to network, meet partners and hold confidential discussions with experts about your projects in development.
This highlight of the event, eagerly awaited by professionals in the sector, has been renamed the Pharmapack Europe Awards, in keeping with the audience and the event’s development. In 2012, these awards will be given for the most innovative packaging of drugs, medical devices, healthcare products and veterinary medicines launched on the European market between November 2010 and December 2011. There will also be awards given in new categories.
