Pharmapack Europe is a two-day exhibition and conference dedicated to pharmaceutical packaging and drug delivery systems. Next year's event is on 1-2 February 2017 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, France.
Pharmapack Europe: 2017 marks the pharma packaging and drug delivery event's 20th successful year. Over its lifetime it has grown in size, profile and popularity; what was once a biennial event is now a major annual show that attracts more than 5,100 visitors and over 380 exhibitors from around the world.
Attendees and delegates range from CEOs and CMCs, to pharmacists and business executives, and the event encompasses everything from R&D and drug development to purchasing, engineering, marketing, logistics and business development. Innovation is at the very heart of Pharmapack. An innovation gallery showcases selected industry innovations from exhibitors, while Innovation Tours guided by industry experts take visitors around exhibitors' stands.
The newest addition for 2017, the Pharmapack Start-up Hub, is designed for young pharma firms to benefit from valuable networking and learning opportunities.
This dedicated area on the show floor gives them a unique platform to share ideas, meet potential customers, partners and investors, and forge relationships that will help them develop.
The Pharmapack Awards recognise new products that are set to shape the future of the industry, in two categories: Exhibitor Innovations is dedicated to those with a stand at the show, while Health Product is open to all pharmaceutical companies. The latter considers new packaging, as well as improvements to existing health products packaging (for human or veterinary use).
Both awards recognise products that have contributed significantly to the proper use of medication, increased patient/user safety and compliance, or represent a significant step towards sustainability.
Pharmapack is a unique opportunity to sharpen technical and industry knowledge. An extensive programme comprises two days of conferences; a one-day serialisation, track-and-trace symposium; a day of workshops; and a 'learning lab' that hosts short presentations on key topics from exhibitors over the course of the show.
Dedicated networking areas and a special drinks reception mean there's never a shortage of new faces to meet. It's a unique opportunity for companies to boost their networks and kickstart their growth.
