For the fifth consecutive year, the countdown to Farmaforum 2018 has begun. The most important event of the Pharmaceutical Industry and related sectors in Spain, will take place in Madrid on 7 and 8 March.
Almost one month before the event, 90% of the space available in the exhibition area has already been allocated. One hundred companies have already hired their stand, which is indicative of the repercussion of the event among professionals and reflects the good moment that the sector is experiencing.
As in previous editions, the details of the Farmaforum Congress, directed by Eduardo Sanz, have been meticulously taken care of. The very high level of the programme is a great attraction for the growing number of visitors.
Belén Crespo, director of AEMPS, will inaugurate Farmaforum 2018 once again. For two days, speeches and important round tables are held in the main hall sponsored by Alkemi. Topics such as Data Integrity and Harmonization, Industry 4.0, Serialization, API processing, the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative or Human Resources will be presented and analyzed.
On the other hand, 10 technical workshops of diverse nature will be touched; from GMP regulations to Europe-US harmonization.
CosméticaForum, with the collaboration of Zurko Research, the Beauty Cluster Barcelona and SEQC, will address, on 7 March, the latest novelties in the cosmetic industry. On the one hand, it will analyze trends in innovation and development and, on the other hand, the latest regulatory changes.
The Biotechforum congress, which will take place on March 8th, will count with the collaboration of entities such as ASEBIO, Bioga or FEBiotec. Biotechnology and innovation and advanced therapies will be the two main pillars of the event.
Farmaforum will also have a novelty this year: Labforum, a specific event on Materials, Instrumentation, Equipment and Methods for Analysis and Diagnosis in the Laboratory, with the support of AETEL and SEProt, among others. “Artificial Intelligence applied to bioinformatics and cost reduction in drug development”, “Advances in proteomics through mass spectrometry” or “Quality control and process optimisation in industry through Zeiss’s GXP module” are topics that will be dealt with for the first time at the fair to open up a space for research in future editions as well.
Once again this year, Farmaforum will have a Brokerage event, organized in collaboration with Asebio and madri+d, in which commercial contacts are facilitated to professionals of industry, science and nanotechnology, in B2B format.
One of the novelties in this edition is the creation of the Farmaforum Awards that will become a benchmark in the sector in the future. They will be presented on the 7th during the cocktail in the following categories: Business Initiative Award, Pharmaceutical Laboratory Award, Best HR Management, Best Biopharmaceutical Association and Best Services Company for the Biopharmaceutical Industry.
