In the ever-changing world of pharmaceuticals, it is important to stay on the top of regulatory updates and grasp the latest technologies that exist on the market. The 6th Annual Pharma Packaging & Labelling Forum organized by GLC Europe will provide a great opportunity for learning and networking during the 2 days of the event. The goal of the conference is to uncover the insights of the most emerging best practices and industry expertise in the field of packaging & labelling in the pharmaceutical sector.

Is your goal to possess the most insightful information for better complying with the fast approaching Falsified Medicines Directive? Would you like to discuss with fellow professionals how Brexit will change the pharmaceutical industry? Do you strive to discover the latest updates and insights from market leaders on track-and-trace, serialization and ensure safe supply chain? Do you want to gain knowledge on best strategies for tamper evidence and combating counterfeits? Do you wish to stay tuned on more challenges the professionals face nowadays? Look forward to the revelation of new technologies during the interactive presentations and panel discussions – along with proven methods for success in the pharmaceutical packaging and labelling sector.

Join us in November 2017 in the beautiful Austrian capital Vienna and get your unique chance to get updates, learn, network, and extend your professional horizons.
