The meeting is shaping up to be the biggest ever, featuring (so far) eight workshops, 66 exhibitors, and sessions on such topics as packaging, global logistics, CRT/Ambient, supply chain optimization, clinical trials, stability, biologics and sustainability. The last day, traditionally focused on international pharma activity, will have sessions offering perspectives from Austria, India and Brazil, among others. Pharmaceutical Commerce is a media sponsor of the event. More information is available at www.coldchainglobalforum.com.
