Leverage existing packaging & labeling strategies to allow for a new level of flexibility, global reach, compliance, and security.

The 4th Annual Pharmaceutical Packaging and Labeling Forum: a gathering of keen-minded speakers and sponsors who will be sharing the most advanced techniques to meet rigorous regulations, deliver to a global market, and enhance patient safety.

Regulatory compliance, the implementation of end-to-end labeling, and the minimization of human error in production are the strongest drivers of packaging, labeling, artwork, and serialization specialists at pharmaceuticals of all sizes. Our expert speakers will address both the specific challenges these verticals face, as well as the shared hurdles that confront them all.
