Pharma Expo makes its debut

Pharma Expo makes its debut

Co-located with Pack Expo International (Nov. 2-5; McCormick Place, Chicago), the new Pharma Expo conference and tradeshow will unite thousands of pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, nutraceutical and medical device brand managers, engineers, marketers and designers.

“The U.S. medical device market is currently a $110 billion industry—the largest in the world. There are more than 6,500 medical device companies in the U.S., and Pharma Expo will provide these companies access to leading market suppliers,” says Jim Pittas, vp, trade shows, PMMI.

The event will showcase technologies involved in every step of the pharmaceutical lifecycle. In addition to the exhibits portion of the event—which is designed to meet the needs of the manufacturers and suppliers—it will consist of a world-class conference program by ISPE, the global leader in pharmaceutical quality.

“One of the challenges for pharmaceutical manufacturers is implementing energy-efficient systems that not only support sustainability goals, but improve competitiveness by reducing costs,” says Nancy Berg, president/CEO, ISPE. “As energy costs continue to increase, the challenge of maintaining high product quality while simultaneously reducing production costs can often be met through adopting many of the energy efficient systems and solutions used in the food processing industry.”
