With an established history as the largest annual industry exhibit for pharma/biopharma manufacturers, INTERPHEX enters its 2012 event with a new platform of offerings, according to the event’s organizers and professional advisory board.
Exhibitors and attendees will find not only more than 650 suppliers and 1,000 product lines filling the floor zones of Facilities, Manufacturing & Packaging, Automation Systems & Controls and Sourcing & Services, but also a reformatted conference program which reflects the cross functional team approach to bringing products successfully to market. In addition, there are technical workshops, keynote presentations, case study-focused floor tours, and special Thursday sessions open to all badgeholders.
“We’ve taken the energy from last year’s boost in attendance and built on it in a big way for INTERPHEX 2012,” said Bob Stewart, Industry Vice President. “We’ve revitalized and grown the conference program to 52 content rich topics over three days, brought in more senior-level speakers and opened up a portion of the conference program to all badgeholders – in addition to bringing back popular features and presentations. This is INTERPHEX at a whole new level.”
Conference Component Tracks the Drug Development Process
The 2012 conference topics will be presented in five tracks targeted to cover the latest achievements in each stage of manufacturing as a drug moves to market: Regulatory Quality Assurance/Quality Control, Product Development, Facility & Process Design, Manufacturing & Packaging, and Supply Chain.
“The speakers are some of the best and brightest, and the tracks address the practical issues manufacturers face at every stage of the process, from resource procurement and regulatory review to successful commercialization,” said R.J. Palermo, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives. “We’ve also added a higher number of case studies, delivering real-world solutions presented by those involved in making them happen.”

This year marks ISPE’s 15th year as the major sponsor of INTERPHEX, and both organizations will join with Pharmaceutical Processing magazine to showcase five Category Winners and one Special Recognition award winner in the eighth annual Facility of the Year Awards (FOYA) program, in a special winners’ center.
