PDA’s flagship Annual Meeting provides a venue for obtaining the latest and most comprehensive information on a broad range of topics related to processing, manufacturing, supply chain and quality control.  Moreover, the meeting provides a venue for learning, benchmarking and sharing of learnings with respect to innovation and continuous improvement, ultimately providing quality medicines for patients.

The theme of the 2019 meeting is Solving Manufacturing and Supply Challenges for Current and Future Medicinal Products.  In selecting this theme, the planning committee’s goal is to design a comprehensive event that encompasses the wide-ranging interests of all PDA members. Whether you are focused on improving existing processes or delving into entirely new technologies and therapies, we will cover relevant information important to both small molecule pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries will be covered. 

Plenary sessions will inspire all of us to engage each other as we focus on the importance of what we do every day to improve the quality of life for millions of people.  It is a daunting and empowering task we are faced with and these sessions will focus on key aspects of our work including innovative manufacturing strategies, supply chain complexity, disruptive technologies and rapid drug development.

Rounding out the program are Interest Group sessions, which offer participants a chance to engage in interactive discussions on a variety of important topics and specific disciplines. The exhibition hall provides opportunities for one-on-one interactions with service providers and vendors who will showcase the latest services and technologies. Authors of numerous poster presentations will also be present to discuss their latest research and data. This year, students and young professionals will have the opportunity to present a poster or from the podium. Social events and breaks are scheduled throughout the meeting to allow time for further networking and peer-to-peer discussions.

This meeting is a ‘must attend’ knowledge sharing event for everyone and especially for those who have recently joined the industry, it is an ideal opportunity to accelerate your impact and position in your company as well as in the pharmaceutical society.
