Thoughts and News on High Visibility Packaging

Pharmapack Europe 2014 focuses on innovation

 Feb. 12-13 event, now at the Porte de Versailles, will concentrate on packaging and delivery systems for medications and healthcare products.


The 13th edition of the Pharmapack Europe event will take place on Feb. 12-13, 2014 at Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles. More than 3,000 visitors and 330 exhibitors from at least 70 countries will gather in the new exhibition hall to review the latest innovations and trends in packaging and delivery systems for medications and healthcare products.

For several years, the event was held in the north of Paris, initially at the Cité des Sciences and, subsequently, at the Grande Halle de la Villette, where it grew into a major event. Now, Pharmapack Europe is moving to the Porte de Versailles, in the south of the French capital. This change of location is a natural consequence following the success of the 2013 edition, which drew a record-breaking 3,000 visitors and 305 exhibitors.

“As we expect even greater numbers of participants for the 2014 edition, we have opted for a larger space capable of accommodating around 330 exhibitors. In addition, this new site is located at the edge of central Paris and offers easy access, enabling the event to pursue its international development by providing more extensive top quality services and facilities to suit professionals arriving from throughout the world,” says Aurore Domange, Event Manager of Pharmapack Europe. In this new location, as at previous editions, visitors to the event will find the same convivial atmosphere that has proven so conducive to effective networking and productive discussions of ongoing and forthcoming projects.

Meeting current expectations and planning for the future
As a leading European conference and exhibition in the field of pharmaceutical packaging and drug delivery systems, Pharmapack Europe remains true to its primary objective: to reflect the issues of concern to healthcare industry stakeholders and to showcase the major trends in the sector, both in terms of emerging markets and technological innovation.

“The event’s logo has thus been updated to highlight the growing importance of delivery systems, in particular for injectable treatments, which account for around 80 percent of the healthcare products currently in development. These systems, which constitute an essential part of a medication and its packaging, represent a market that is growing strongly and driving innovation forward”, says Domange. In keeping with its aim to meet the expectations of the healthcare industry, Pharmapack Europe will offer, once again, an edition packed with new features, as well as a top quality conference and technical symposium program alongside the exhibition.
