ISPE UK Annual Conference and Awards Dinner 2023

Date: Thursday 30th November 2023
Venue:  Coventry Building Society Arena, Judds Lane, Coventry, CV6 6GE

This year's event, which will follow the established format of a full day of lectures, running alongside a bustling exhibition during the day is followed by the ISPE Annual Awards Dinner in the evening. For full details of the event, please visit our dedicated ISPE UK Annual Awards Dinner webpage.

The Annual Awards Dinner is regularly attended by over 400 of the UK's top decision makers and leaders in the pharmaceutical engineering arena, along with their clients. The ISPE UK Affiliate Annual Awards are awarded in recognition of the support that individuals and companies provide to the work of the ISPE in the UK and internationally. ISPE is a volunteer led organisation and the awards dinner is a chance for the UK affiliate to say 'thank you' to the volunteer members who enable us to put on our events and training sessions throughout the year. Nominations are made by the regional committee members and the UK affiliate board reviews these.

The conference runs alongside the exhibition, which is always a very well attended and bustling affair. Over 45 manufacturers, suppliers and pharmaceutical industry decision makers will be exhibiting, making this a crucial event for your company to be a part of.
