2018 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo

If you haven’t already submitted a proposal for the 2018 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo in Philadelphia, now is your chance! You have until 28 February 2018 to complete your submission.  This is your opportunity to contribute to the industry-critical pharmaceutical conversations that take place in the education sessions at the 2018 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo, and spill over into the Expo Hall, social networking events, and informal interactions throughout the entire meeting.  There is no better opportunity to connect with pharma professionals at all levels from all over the world and build lasting relationships and networks.  Just last year I happened to sit next to someone on the plane who was attending and presenting at their first ISPE Annual Meeting.  They had no idea what to expect – and boy were they going to be in for the one of the more rewarding professional experiences of their life.  When I chatted with them later at the conference, they were so excited and glad they had the opportunity to participate and learn from the meeting, but also the amazing opportunity to expand their profession network.   

I’ve been involved in the development of the education program for the ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo for the past three years and have seen the real benefit for pharma professionals and their organizations.  Attendees have the opportunity to attend and gain knowledge from an event with a broad breadth of topics that allow them to grow and significantly impact the future direction of the pharma industry, and ultimately provide a positive outcome for our customers - the patient.  

The scope of this year’s program is centered around the 2018 theme:

Vision to Reality:  Delivering Next Generation Therapies

We will once again offer the Innovation Forum to afford attendees the opportunity to learn about the most cutting-edge developments in the pharmaceutical industry.  The remaining tracks are designed around IPSE’s Knowledge Networks and Communities of Practice including:

  • End-to-End Supply Chain Management
  • Facilities and Equipment
  • Information Systems
  • Product Development and Production Systems
  • Quality System and Regulatory

The 2018 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo Program Committee is committed to offering sessions to meet the needs of the global membership of ISPE. Speaker proposals are being accepted until 28 February 2018.  Get your ideas in now and start planning to attend the 2018 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo!  I look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia.
