BUYERS OF DEVELOPMENT & MANUFACTURING CONTRACT SERVICES HEADING TO MONACO IN MARCH

Pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and nutraceutical companies now outsource at almost every stage of the value chain. To outsource development and manufacturing processes to contract services organisations represents probably the most significant development to have made the concept of globalisation in life science become today's reality. Strategically, contract services organisations are well placed for the success of their customers' businesses.

Bio/PharMOS annual networking event combines an exhibition and a conference and offers to players in the life science industry an unsurpassed forum dedicated to development and manufacturing contract services for pharma/biotech/nutraceutical products.

The 6th edition of Bio/PharMOS will take place on 20-21 March 2007 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo, Principality of Monaco. The venue in Monaco attracts every year buyers and procurement decision-makers of 25 nationalities: their objective is to discover solutions that exhibitors can offer to their particular needs and to stay up to date with the market offer. During two days, exhibitors will meet representatives from big, medium and small pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and nutraceutical enterprises coming to discover and compare the wide and diverse range of technologies offered and to choose their next contract services provider.

Bio/PharMOS exhibitors cover services across the entire value chain from development, analytical and bioanalytical studies, galenic formulation development and clinical trial supplies, to primary development manufacturing of APIs, vaccines, biologics or nutraceuticals, secondary production of finished dosage forms, filling and packaging, lyophilisation and sterile (aseptic) filling, up to commercial-scale manufacturing and logistics.

The conference is the perfect complement to the exhibition: innovative solutions to current challenges in healthcare delivery will be presented. It will also be an exceptional opportunity to hear from successful business men and women active in the life science contract services sector. And to make sure attendees make the most of their participation, Bio/PharMOS offers enhanced networking opportunities with its online system for pre-arranging meetings before the event.

Monaco is only 20 minutes away from Nice International Airport and the organisation team has negotiated special arrangements for its guests with Monte Carlo's most renowned hotels - what better way to start Spring?
