Pharma EXPO, co-owned and produced by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, and the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), arrives for its Las Vegas debut at the Las Vegas Convention Center Sept. 28–30 with essential educational programming, expert suppliers, and tremendous networking opportunities.
But that’s not all.
Because it’s co-located with PMMI’s PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015, a trip to Pharma EXPO means you’ll be immersed in a small city of solutions for processing, packaging, and all stages of the pharmaceutical lifecycle; a city with more than 2,000 suppliers, over 30,000 attendees, and more than 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
Here’s some of what you can expect to find.
Education & Answers
Pharma EXPO is a learning experience. The three-day Pharma EXPO Conference program, organized by ISPE, features subject matter experts and industry innovators in free sessions, conveniently located on the show floor. The Innovation Stages, The Center for Trends and Technologies, The Food Safety Summit Resource Center, the Reusable Packaging Learning Center, and individual exhibitors all provide free education, presented by industry thought leaders.
The Pharma EXPO Conference runs from 9:00 a.m.–2:50 p.m. daily. Tickets are available and you can purchase tickets for individual sessions, single days, or the full conference when you register to attend the show. The conference schedule and registration are online at pharmaexpo.com. Sessions take place in Room N-253 Monday, September 28 through Wednesday, September 30, in three day-long tracks:
Monday: Manufacturing Operations
Tuesday: Compliance Trends
Wednesday: Pharmaceutical Packaging
The Innovation Stages (Booths N-559, C-1041, C-1045, C-1049) are locations for quality education without leaving the show floor. Leading innovators in processing and packaging present free 30-minute sessions on the trends and technologies changing your business, and how to make the most of them.
The Center for Trends & Technology (CTT) (Booth C-4829) are brought to PACK EXPO by Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork™ Program. They provide an up-close look at automation technologies and how they’ll make your operation run more smoothly with less downtime.
