Pharmapack Europe will introduce two new dedicated zones in 2024. The new zones, Packaging Services and Bio Packaging, will meet the growing demand for specialist biological packaging and contract packaging organizations (CPO).
The new Bio Packaging zone builds on Pharmapack’s long history at the forefront of innovations in biological drug delivery, with attendees now also looking for specialist bio packaging. Demand has risen rapidly in the last two years, driven by the increasingly bespoke solutions required for very sensitive new modalities like mRNA, the rapidly growing biologics pipeline, and the need to increase access to biosimilars by lowering costs. All three of these trends require new bio packaging solutions and a central platform for partners to meet, connect, and exchange ideas.
Similarly, the CDMO presence at Pharmapack has grown year-on-year, and contract packaging and filling companies are now one of the fastest-growing outsourcing sectors. The new Packaging Services zone will unite CMO, CDMO, and contract packaging and services companies with cutting-edge innovations spanning filling, consulting, and approaches to improve environmental impacts.
“Like most areas of pharma in the last few years, both contract packaging and bio packaging have evolved quickly to meet changing demands. To help the industry find their perfect partners and to sustain this growth, we are introducing dedicated zones to accommodate exhibitors specialized in these solutions,” says Laura Indriksone, brand manager, Pharmapack.
“For example, biologics are often reliant on innovative packaging to ensure both product quality and safety, but also to help improve compliance and adherence. Contract packaging is no less exciting and significant, with an expanding industry and localized and diversified supply chains now sought, we are anticipating this part of the show to continue to grow quickly. In fact, we see growth in contract packaging coming from China, Europe, and the USA for both innovators and generic companies.”
More information will be available on the new zones after the closing of Pharmapack Europe 2023, which will held in person Feb. 1-2 at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, and online from Jan. 18-Feb. 17. The event, with 320+ exhibitors, sees many of largest pharma device and packaging companies attend alongside early-stage innovations in the start-up hub—proving a window into both the year ahead and future innovations.
