Who should attend the Pharma Device Forum™?

We think the Forum will be of tremendous value to any pharmaceutical professional wanting to update their skills and knowledge. However, anyone working in pharmaceutical manufacturing quality, validation, engineering, innovation and production would benefit the most. Each year, we cover the latest advances in pharmaceutical, medical devices, complementary medicines and veterinary medicine manufacturing including laboratory testing, technological disruptions, validation, pharmaceutical quality (management) system (PQS).

Hot topics in the life-sciences industry, for 2024 include Pharma 4.0TM, Data Integrity, Validation, TGA inspection trends, Quality Metrics, the new PIC/S PE009 Version 17, Annex 2, 15, 16, and the Annex 1, innovative technology advancements and other key changes in the industry, including facility, process and cleanroom designs.

GMP & Engineering Conference Tracks

Track 1 – GMP Quality & Compliance and updates to PIC/S
Track 2 – Innovative Thinking, Technology & Validation | Industry News and Adaptation
Track 3 – GMP Facility and Process Design & Engineering 

Topics of our GMP FORUMS include continuous improvement in facility designs and processing engineering, including increasing automation and evolutions in systems management.

Every talk that we have been able to share freely is still available on our website, making the talks go-to reference points for the industry years after the events.
