Pharma Traceability Forum

Philadelphia, PA, United States

From Serialization to Full Traceability

Time's up! For pharma manufacturers, the deadline for DSCSA serialization compliance in the US is well and truly here. The good news: most companies are in pretty good shape. But this is no time to sit back.

At the 8th Pharmaceutical Traceability Forum, industry players from all points the supply chain will converge to discuss pressing issues and explore solutions to serialization and traceability challenges. Over three days of exclusive case studies, workshops, round tables, white-board sessions, panel discussions and informal networking, we will bring together experts from across the industry to tackle a range of hot topics.

Join us in Philadelphia, November 28-30th, to learn how to get maximum value from your serialization and traceability initiatives -- and reap the benefits of full supply chain visibility.

''The open interaction and willingness of speakers, panelists and attendees to share experiences, both good and bad, was very beneficial (and refreshing).''
Gary O'Halloran (NorthStar Healthcare)
