The Specialty Zone will be a focused area for custom, contract, and toll manufacturers serving specialty chemical industries. At the expo grand opening on Feb. 3, exhibitor and technology showcases will be featured along with a welcome reception for all guests.

Following the opening of the expo will be two days of educational sessions and networking events to encourage collaboration and growth within the industry. On Feb. 4, the day will begin at 9:00 am with a green chemistry session hosted by Cristina Amorim of ThermoFisher Scientific, and a session on the future of biopharma business with Bill Looney of Pharmaceutical Executive and Ben Comer of PwC. Sessions will continue throughout the day focusing on topics such as economic perspectives, agrochemicals, globally harmonized system of classification and labeling of chemicals, improving facility safety and security, biocatalysis, and patent trends.
