The reception will provide attendees with an additional opportunity to network with legislators, academics and other local influencers.
The day will feature five session and four panel discussions. Sessions are adapted to highlight the advantages of the region, discussing the needs and concerns of the Midwestern marketplace, and examine the chemical manufacturing industry at large. Some of the sessions include:
The Pharma Exchange will include speakers from Baxter, Cambridge Major, Evonik Degussa, Fontarome, Rondaxe, Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce, SAFC and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Research Fund.

We hope that once this inaugural event takes place, it will be the catalyst for further networking by and within the region."
