Posted on: 27 Nov 17

Aimed at capturing emerging trends in PFS injector technology, regulation and patient centric drug delivery, SMi Group’s flagship conference and exhibition on Pre-Filled Syringes will gather a global audience of over 100 senior PFS experts and big pharma when it returns to Central London on 17th and 18th January 2018 for its 10th annual show.

“We are delighted to chair this forum which has been drafted with great care to allow for the very best discussions and engagement on crucial topics for our industry,” said Alphons Fakler, Group Head of Risk Management from Novartis Pharma. “As all industry takes the same path, this conference provides the ideal platform to share best practices, benefit from lessons learned and network with other experts in the field.”

Agenda highlights will include a unique spotlight on patient needs in parenteral drug delivery with key guidance from West Pharmaceutical Services and Janssen. As well as providing attendees with a market overview of current trends and new technologies, the session will discuss PFS legislation and developments driven by human-centred insights.

“In this year’s conference, the patient will be in focus again. What can we do to ensure patient adherence and mitigate application errors, and how can we improve our understanding of the patient experience? What are the actual challenges a patient is facing while handling our devices?” Bettine Boltres, Technical Account Manager from West Pharmaceutical Services said. “These are just some of the questions the presentations and panel discussion will address and illuminate from various aspects. Besides that, latest trends in the development of both formulations and devices as well as challenges during life-cycle management will be in scope.”

SMi’s 10th annual 2018 Pre-Filled Syringes Europe conference and exhibition will take place on 17th & 18th January at the Copthorne Tara Hotel, Kensington, London UK.
