Program Highlights

Dear Colleagues,

The Parenteral Drug Association warmly invites you to come and be part of this year’s Universe of Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices, for the first time in Sweden!

Since its first edition in 2004, the conference has become a fixture in the calendar for the pharmaceutical industry, and a must-attend event for everyone working in the fields related to parenteral drug and device development.

For its 16th year, the European event ventures out to the north of Europe to Gothenburg, Sweden. This amazing city is located at a key strategic location where river meets the sea. With its Dutch heritage, Gothenburg perfectly combines tradition and innovation, offering an overwhelming cultural diversity of the arts and the sciences.

Geographically situated in the center of Scandinavia with the largest port of that region, traditionally, trade, manufacturing, and industry have been the main contributors to the city’s wealth.

This signature PDA event will expose you to the vast net of the PDA family, a culturally and scientifically diverse melting pot. Coming to Gothenburg will offer you close to unlimited potential for identifying new business partners, meet fellow professionals, connect with international colleagues, and simply make new friends!

PDA has made every effort to create yet another impressive opportunity for you to gain access to key decision makers in the pharmaceutical industry. Meet government representatives, service providers, and manufacturers from all over the world this fall!

Join us in Gothenburg and be part of the world’s largest event on this subject.

Sincerely,

the Co-Chairs,

Mathias Romacker, Pfizer, Chair
Thomas Schoenknecht, Lonza, Chair
