Pharma Serialisation & Traceability 2019


On 14 & 15 March 2019, Porto will host the BioTech Pharma Summit: Pharma Serialisation & Traceability 2019 conference. This year’s event will bring together over 150+ pharma and biotech professionals gathered in Porto.  Join your peers next June at Pharma Serialisation & Traceability 2019 to ensure a comprehensive, fully integrated and compliant serialization strategy and deployment while minimizing business operation disruptions.

What will 2023 and beyond ultimately look like? How will new technology like cloud & block chain affect us? Join us in March 2019 to discuss the most pressing topics with top industry experts at the Pharma Serialisation & Traceability 2019

The global pharmaceutical industry is moving towards a serialised world. In over 40 countries, regulatory mandates to secure the supply chain are already in place or in development. Now with FDA enforcement discretion giving another year cushion, there is more time to work out the kinks. Operationalizing serialization is an ongoing process that needs continual adjustments to account for bottlenecks, validation challenges, data inconsistencies, onboarding new supply chain partners, and more. How can we ultimately reach the 2023 deadline of a fully interoperable system if we cannot work out all the kinks occuring now?

Take advantage of the best opportunity to meet potential clients face-to-face. Build relationships while demonstrating thought leadership and sharing expertise.

Across two days the BioTech Pharma Summit: Pharma Serialisation & Traceability 2019 will provide information about the differences between serialisation regulations globally, how to capture data, format and share it, comply with fast-approaching traceability deadlines, ensure maximum patient safety, manage IT, how to monetize your investment, optimise supply chain visibility and more. If you want to hear how serialisation can vastly improve your business don’t miss the Pharma Serialisation & Traceability 2019 in Porto!
