You are warmly invited to join us in our ongoing professional discourse of latest manufacturing technologies and business trends in the Parenteral Packaging arena.

PDA Europe’s Conference has proven to be a must-attend event for professionals in this field.

Join us in Rome / Italy, 27-28 February 2018 to continue and further deepen scientific advancements and understanding of topics previously raised in this successful annual event.

As proper packaging of pharmaceuticals is crucial to drug stability, this conference and the accompanying exhibition address quality of components and containers as much as aspects of processing, product distribution and storage.

Excellent speakers from the industry, regulatory and academia will give detailed information about opportunities and challenges the advancing pharmaceutical packaging market faces. The conference aims to keep its attendees updated about all regulatory aspects involved in the parenteral packaging process, such as new regulations from European and US agencies, the revision of Annex 1, and PDA Technical Reports. Different materials such as glass, polymers & elastomers and their characteristics regarding supplier issues and end-user preferences will also be discussed, as well as the design of primary and secondary packaging.

The role of Container Closure Integrity (CCI) in product-package development, post-approval product changes and routine manufacturing will be explored, and information on aseptic processing will be given. Of equal importance to the content is to interact with the speakers and your fellow attendees. Rome will offer a comfortable yet exciting atmosphere for exchange during refreshment breaks, on-site lunches and evening receptions. Join PDA Europe’s Parenteral Packaging Conference in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Welcome to Rome!
