International Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Distribution -2016

April 25-26,2016
Ambassador Plaza****,Kiev,Ukraine




Dear Colleagues,

it is our great pleasure and privilege to invite you to Ambassador Plaza****,Kiev, Ukraine in April 2016 to take part in the International Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Distribution-2015 exhibition and conference. International Society of GxP standards is planning exhibition in the beautiful place – Kiev,Ukraine.
International Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Distribution-2016 premier European event for the latest updates and case studies on successfully ensuring the most efficient, traceable & secure pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution networks.

Build stronger partnerships with your Pharma partners to get more insight. Ensure multi-enterprise interaction to achieve compliance and responsiveness

International Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Distribution-2016 will offer delegates from pharma, specialty pharmacies, distributors, and PBMs the opportunity to engage in dialogue on ways to work together to effectively manage the distribution of existing products and new specialty pharmaceutical launches.

Within Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology manufacturing operations, maintaining a rigorous level of quality assurance is of the utmost importance. Outside of the strenuous and ever increasing FDA,EMEA and international regulatory standards, there is also the need to maintain the highest possible level of product quality. As corporations work to adapt to complex products, along with ever evolving regulatory guidance, learning from other organizations that have successfully grappled with these issues is of the utmost importance. This program will provide the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries an open forum for discussion and debate amongst leading organizations on how to maintain the highest level of quality within manufacturing facilities.

Through addressing a wide variety of the challenges that quality assurance executives face in maintaining regulatory compliance within manufacturing facilities, this conference and Expo program will create a unique opportunity for networking and knowledge share for forward thinking pharmaceutical executives. Having an opportunity to discuss in an informal and private setting, the challenges in maintaining quality, and understanding what peer executives would do in particular situations will be of tremendous value to manufacturers and distributors in attendance.

Arguably the most important three letters concerning the pharmaceutical supply chain at present, the recent changes to the GDP guidelines have added to the pressure pile which rests on the shoulders of pharmaceutical supply chain and distribution experts.

The GDP developments concerning updated controlled temperature distribution, validation & qualification, and risk management requirements, all to be implemented within six months, have created a sense of urgency and panic in the pharma supply chain space. This is particularly relevant when you consider that the pharmaceutical supply chain is constantly looked at as an area where costs could and should be cut.

International Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Distribution-2016 event has been designed to uncover the buzz around the GDP guidelines, as well as tackling other essential pharmaceutical distribution challenges, including:

Implementing and integrating a central European distribution model
Sourcing the right logistics partners in marginal countries and emerging markets
Understanding and adopting the latest developments in track n’ trace and serialisation
New for 2016!

Get involved! With your choice of THREE NEW workshops offering you an in-depth and focused forum to discuss and discover more about the following topics:

The top 3 changes to the GDP guidelines this year: what are they and how can you implement them?
Successful End-to-End Supply Chain Management
Quality Management in Your Cold Supply Chain

Join us for the International Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Distribution-2016 Meeting! 



We are all really hoping you will find the city welcoming, the programme exciting, the company stimulating and the experience enriching. We look forward very much to welcoming you to Ukraine in April 2016 for the International Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Distribution-2016
