INTERPHEX 2014: New Partners, New Programs

Conference sessions from PDA and PharmTech expand educational opportunities at INTERPHEX 2014.
Mar 02, 2014

In the summer of 2013, INTERPHEX representatives hit the road, visiting customers and gathering insight on how we could continue to evolve INTERPHEX (International Pharmaceutical Expo) to meet the needs of the industry. We have listened and have taken action with the support of our exhibitors, partners, and loyal attendees.

INTERPHEX is the industry’s source for biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical manufacturing solutions for manufacturers to confidently process, fill, and finish life-enhancing drugs. Attendees can touch and procure the latest technology from more than 650 of the industry’s best vendors, many displaying new equipment products, alongside service providers offering new capabilities.

This year, INTERPHEX is going beyond the show floor and giving attendees the knowledge that they asked for with a new conference program produced by PDA and new programs that support all dosage forms.

New at INTERPHEX 2014
INTERPHEX is partnering with the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), a global provider of science, technology, and regulatory information and education in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical community. This partnership allows us to deliver unrivaled opportunities for knowledge, interaction, and professional growth for show attendees.

PDA’s Education @INTERPHEX provides comprehensive, commercial-free, and objective discussions on the latest industry trends and thinking from thought leaders and regulators in the industry including headline speaker Richard Friedman, associate director, Office of Manufacturing and Product, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, FDA.

Programs address multiple dosage forms
We’ve also added additional complimentary programs to help attendees keep up with current trends and learn technical and practical experiences, including: case studies, CRB Tech Tank Series, IPS Technologies Floor Tours, Innovation Stages, specialty forums, workshops, and a special Student and Young Professionals Program.

These educational programs will address the needs of the industry focusing on:

  • Biologics development
  • Oral solid dosage forms
  • Parenteral dosage forms
  • Facility architecture
  • Regulatory and compliance issues
  • Facility management, expansion, construction, and capital investment
  • Managing the supply chain

Educational sessions hosted by PharmTech and BioPharm International
Pharmaceutical Technology and BioPharm International will host a Specialty Forum plus eight sessions in the Innovation Center on the Exhibit Hall show floor.
The Innovation Stage lineup for Tuesday, March 18 focuses on the oral solid dosage market and features sessions on Advances in Hot-Melt Extrusion Manufacturing, Continuous Manufacturing for Solid Dose Drugs, High-Potency Manufacturing for Finished Drugs, Implementing Effective Cleaning Validation Programs.
