"In recent years, issues surrounding counterfeit and tainted ingredients and pharmaceuticals have come to the forefront of the pharmaceutical and biopharm industries. These concerns not only affect the players within these sectors, they trickle down to end-users and put patients' lives at risk. It is of exceptional importance that ingredients used for the manufacture of pharmaceuticals are not only authentic and safe at the time of production, but are also transported in a secure fashion so that they are not compromised at any point along the way," noted Haf Cennydd, UBM Live Brand Director. "We have created this virtual event with the intention of offering a convenient format for key players in the industry to commune on this topic and find the best solutions and resources available to address these concerns."
The online format provides a compelling forum for participants to get the latest up-to-date news on this critical topic for the pharmaceutical packaging industry. With free admission it offers unparalleled accessibility to both exhibitors and attendees who are able to participate from anywhere in the world. Exhibitors will benefit from the event by gaining access to a targeted audience of senior pharma decision makers who are seeking to find solutions for the growing threats of quality and counterfeiting in pharmaceutical ingredients production. Attendees will have the opportunity to directly interact with exhibitors who provide the services and products they are looking for, as well as access to an easily navigable program of sessions presented by thought leaders in the industry.
