Speaker Biographies

Save the date for the 12th edition of the Pharmaceutical Cold & Supply Chain Logistics Conference which will take place 10-11 October 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic.

At this great event you will gain valuable information from supply chain and quality experts who will share their knowledge and best practices on to¬pics such as GMP/GDP regulation, temperature controlled distribution and warehousing, serialization, and transport lane risk assessments.

After a medicine is manufactured, it may have to travel thousands of kilometers before reaching its destination, be it a hospital, a pharmacy or a doctor. To maintain product quality, safety and efficacy, the appropriate temperature and conditions need to be monitored and ensured throughout every step in this journey.

The PDA Europe Pharmaceutical Cold & Supply Chain Logistics Conference has proven to be the Number One event to learn everything about GXP Compliance to secure temperature controlled supply and how to manage the risks and hazards according to GXP regulations.

As an attendee, you will get knowledge acquisition through presentations by excellent speakers and via lively discussions. Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities for personal networking with regulators, vendors and (pharmaceutical) supply chain partners to exchange ideas and debate outcomes.

We warmly invite you to join us in Prague later this year!
