On behalf of the Scientific Program Planning Committee and PDA, we are proud to invite you to the 13th PDA Parenteral Packaging Conference to take place in Venice, Italy, on 18-19 April 2023.
Undeniably, the world is shifting towards a more sustainable and resource-conscious way of acting. The pharmaceutical industry needs to follow this mind shift as well. And we do. Slowly but steadily, we see more and more initiatives coming up in different companies. Starting with the low-hanging fruits, such as outer packaging and logistics, we work our way into the core of our products, i.e., drug products including the primary packaging components.
At this conference we have distinguished speakers from the industry presenting their approach to sustainability and thus giving us inspiration for how we can start or move this forward in our own company.
However, as with all new topics, there are no real standards for working or measuring success. We are all trying to figure out our own way to contribute, which motivates why this conference is so important to attend. Only by interacting and exchanging ideas can we develop and define best industry practices for approaches to sustainability.
In addition to the conference theme, our core recurring topics of new technologies, materials, and techniques will also be addressed. Packaging development for parenteral preparations cannot be discussed as an isolated activity. Instead, a holistic and integrated approach considering the relevant development interfaces is inevitable. Drug-container interaction is a topic that always provokes new studies and discoveries.
This Conference has traditionally seen a strong mix of representatives from large pharmaceutical companies, packaging component vendors, leaders in manufacturing equipment, and regulatory experts. This enticing mix of delegates provides for a well-rounded conference agenda with top-notch presentations and interactive discussions around the complete pharmaceutical packaging value chain.
Join the PDA packaging community from all over the world and the involved parties, such as pharma companies, large and small, component suppliers, system suppliers, filling line vendors, analytical service providers, global regulators, and start-ups, just to name a few.
Ample exchange will be fostered during lunch and coffee breaks, interactive side events, and exciting evening networking activities. We see over and over again that a virtual meeting just cannot replace a good chat over a coffee or meal. And the location of Venice, Italy provides ample opportunity to refresh the mind with beautiful background scenery!
We are very much looking forward to meeting you once again at the 2023 PDA Parenteral Packaging Conference!
