LONDON, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
When it comes to the evolving arena of pharmaceutical manufacturing, there are few events that can match the precedence of GDS International's Next Generation Pharmaceutical (NGP) Manufacturing Summit: http://www.ngpharmaeurope.com
Always disruptive in its thought-leadership, this year's NGP Manufacturing summit will be hosted on the 17-19 September at the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel in London, UK - playing host to a 65-strong consortium of C-level executives and corporate officers from the region's most innovation and leading-edge pharmaceutical manufacturing firms. Positioned at the very pinnacle of industry movements, this year's summit promises to continue its trend as the most well respected event within the European Pharmaceutical industry.
Top C-level executives will be present to discuss cutting-edge business challenges, ranging from Operational Excellence and supply chain movements to regulatory impacts and traceability elements to name but a select few.
The Summit combines high-level roundtable discussions with next generation solutions that, together with the UK's Delegate Director, Francesca Swain, have been championed by the Summit's very own NG20 - populated with the industry's best-in-class thought-leaders - who have helped play a pivotal part in shaping the Summit's two-and-a-half day agenda and trends.
Included within the senior executive delegation are Olivier Rowland, EMEA Procurement Director at Merck Sharpe & Dhome; Merck's CISO, Frank Wagner; Regi Van Genechten, Senior Director of Supply Chain, Johnson & Johnson; Ingo Ebeling, Head of Technology & Product Support, Abbot Laboratories; and Novartis' Global Head of Purchasing IT, Philippe Gerwill.
Fabrizio Borin, Head of Production at Lundbeck Pharmaceuticals Italy, who attended the last NGP Manufacturing Summit at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, Switzerland, said: "It's a good, relaxed environment in which we have a chance to talk together, exchange ideas and create networks. A very good experience."
The event has been designed specifically for forward-thinking, C-level executives in the European Pharmaceutical manufacturing arena, drawing on experiences and discussing the challenges facing the sector. The NGP Manufacturing Summit will offer comprehensive, one-to-one meetings to give delegates the opportunity to meet with business analysts and solution providers to discuss strategy and technology demands in a rapidly evolving business climate.
Francesca Swain, GDS International's UK Delegate Director, believes the high calibre of speakers and exceptional content, combined with excellent networking opportunities, give the delegates and sponsors true value for money and a significant return on their investment.
"With just under four months until Europe's most significant Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Summit, we are delighted to announce the introduction of the NG20, which will ensure delegates receive a personal and relevant programme aimed at the highest level. We are pleased to be bringing together the top European pharmaceutical companies in one location at the same time.
"Key level executives will be in attendance, maximising every opportunity over the two-and-a-half days - and London will be a fantastic location to thrash out the current challenges facing the industry today. This is an exciting time for the European region, with the opportunity to shape the future of pharmaceutical manufacturing there for the taking."
