Organised annually in February, the PHARM Connect Congress is the largest and most important pharmaceutical and biotechnology business summit in Central Eastern Europe. Since the event’s launch in 2011, the number of participants has reached more than 500 from over 20 countries in the region and beyond. Over the two days of the congress the leading service providers of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector – covering a wide range of profiles from API’s and laboratory equipment to processing, automation, logistics and warehousing and many others – have the opportunity to meet the key decision-makers of their targeted companies during the course of pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings. All meetings are mutually agreed upon prior to the event on TEG’s cutting edge Meeting Scheduler website. The Programme Advisory Committee formed of industry experts ensures the highest relevance of the conference presentations each year. The networking focus of PHARM Connect is further strengthened by additional informal activities such as exclusive excursions to the region’s key manufacturing facilities, luxury seated buffet lunches as well as a cocktail reception to provide a more relaxed environment for additional professional discussions.
Strictly operating on an invitation only basis guarantees that the highest level of delegation is present. Each solution provider at PHARM Connect is selected based on requirements and interests provided by attending pharmaceutical professionals prior to the event.
