PharmOut Forum

Past Pharma and Device Forum™

Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industry Conferences

2024 Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Conference

PharmOut facilitated the first Forums – in 2011, and from day 1, it enjoyed the support of some progressive staff within the TGA that recognised the benefit of educating industry. It also had a genuine non-profit making attitude, often times charge less than half the cost of a comparable conference run by a not-for-profit organisation.

PharmOut annual GMP Forums quickly become the leading forum for the Pharma and Device manufacturing industry share and discuss ideas. Held in Melbourne, Australia, every year the Forum focuses on a wide range of topics from Validation, Engineering, Compliance but always with a firm eye on innovation, like mRNA vaccines, Pharma 4.0®, e Industrial Internet of Things (IIot), Sustainability and other leading industry trends.

PharmOut views these Forums as a way to give back to the industry, For The Industry By the Industry.

The focus of our national forums is to bring together all areas of the pharmaceutical, medical device and veterinary medicines manufacturing industry to become aware of mega trends, them disseminate, display and debate new ideas, changes and innovations, and technological advances impacting the industry.

History of National GMP Forums organised by PharmOut

PharmOut first started the National Engineering, GMP & Validation Forum in the year of 2011 (the “PharmOut’s Forums” as they soon become known). We would like to change the name in 2024 to the Pharma and Device Forum’s to recognise the contribution of the entire community.

With so much disruption in the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing industry due to technological advances and PIC/s and Annex changes, we proudly brought you the first Pharma 4.0 conference in back in April 2018.

Into the future, we will continue to share exciting ideas and experiences around the industry, including ANZ, EU and US trends, findings, engineering and product innovations, and other hot topics. What will impact you and your role in the future, e.g. an aging population, automation, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Large Language Models (LLM), these are all common disrupters, or opportunities, irrespective if you work in the medical device, pharmaceutical, or veterinary medicine industry, or if you are in the clinical, regulatory or pharmacovigilance.
