PDA’s flagship Annual Meeting provides a venue for obtaining the latest and most comprehensive information on a broad range of topics related to processing, manufacturing and quality control. More importantly, the Annual Meeting is the ideal forum for sharing best practices and learning how industry is applying novel approaches for development and commercialization of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products. The trend continues with the 2017 PDA Annual Meeting taking place April 3-5 in Anaheim, CA.
The theme of the 2017 Meeting is Manufacturing Innovation: The Next Wave of Sterile & Biopharmaceutical Science, Technologies & Processing. In selecting this theme, the goal was to design an inclusive event that encompasses the wide ranging interests of all PDA members. Relevant information important to both small molecule pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries will be covered. Taking full advantage of the Meeting being held in the United States, which is known as being a “hot bed” of innovation, novel approaches and future strategies for bringing products to the market will figure prominently on the program.
Plenary sessions focus on advanced therapeutic strategies, including the emerging fields of immunotherapy, gene and cell-based therapies. Emphasis is placed on science and technologies needed to bring these innovative products to the patient. Additional plenary sessions further explore current and future trends in process development and manufacturing, including topics on next generation processing and facilities, application of big data for process design and optimization and accelerating the industry response to healthcare needs. Concurrent sessions were designed to support the Conference theme and allow Meeting participants to take a deeper look at the technology, science and processing approaches that are shaping our industry now and in the future. These focus areas form the basis of tracks that include topics related to advances in analytical sciences and quality control strategies, developments in patient-centered precision medicine and next generation manufacturing.
The Annual Meeting is one of PDA’s Signature Events, and one of our most popular meetings as well, typically attracting more than 600 Conference attendees. With multiple networking breaks, luncheon, and reception, exhibitors have ample time to connect with your desired audience of industry leaders, strengthen business relationships, and create new sales leads.
