PARIS—Pharmapack, a two-day exhibition and conference dedicated to pharmaceutical packaging, drug delivery and affiliated industries, taking place February 1-2, 2017 at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles (Hall 4), Paris—is making a positive addition.
With 2017 marking the event’s 20th successful year, it has grown in size, profile and popularity from a bi-annual event to a major annual show that attracts 5,100+ visitors and over 380 exhibitors from more than 70 countries around the world.
Now, it is adding the Pharmapack Start-up Hub, an all-new addition for 2017 designed to let innovative young pharma firms benefit from valuable networking and learning opportunities at a price that suits their budget.
Exhibitors in the Pharmapack Start-up Hub will be highlighted as the most innovative firms at the show, giving them a unique platform to showcase their ideas, meet potential customers, partners and investors and forge new relationships that will help them develop for years to come.
Visitors to the show range from CEOs and CMCs to pharmacists and business execs, and work in every area from R&D and drug development to purchasing, engineering, marketing, logistics and business development. 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 ambitious young companies to boost their networks and kick-start their growth.
On top of that, Pharmapack is a unique opportunity to sharpen up technical and industry knowledge. The extensive content programme comprises two days of conferences, a one-day Serialisation, Track and Trace Symposium, one-day Workshops and a Learning Lab that hosts short, sharp presentations on key topics from exhibitors.
Space in the Pharmapack Start-up Hub is strictly limited to just 10 places. Exhibitors will be selected by Pharmapack’s advisory board of industry experts, who will base their decision on the uniqueness, market prospects, patient impact and savings potential of each applicant’s innovations.
Areas of particular interest include patient-centric packaging and drug-delivery solutions, in line with connected health and anti-counterfeiting measures. Firms pursuing all types of pharma and biopharma packaging innovation are encouraged to apply.
