Past event: Pharma Contract Manufacturing Summit

Risk Management, Quality, Tech Transfer & Business Continuity

Now more than ever, pharmaceutical and biotech companies are using Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs) to help them with scalability and focusing on drug discovery and drug marketing. CMOs are a response to the competitive international nature of the pharmaceutical market as well as the increasing demand for outsourced services.

Our Pharma Contact Manufacturing event (geared for big pharma and small to mid size biotechs) will focus on technical rather than relationship building topics.

What to expect in 2019

  • Interactive Discussion Groups broken down by big pharma focus and small pharma focus
  • An interactive workshop on preparing now for 2023 interoperability
  • An exhibition hall featuring CMOs and solution providers
  • Thought provoking session on risk management and tech transfer strategies for expanding patient access
  • A unique approach to vendor selection that focuses on what you can live with versus what's a deal breaker
