Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 22, 2010
Summit Publishing Company's Healthcare Packaging magazine has launched their annual event with changes and enhancements designed to appeal to a new breed of conference-goer. A revised format, a move to Princeton, NJ, and an expanded agenda combine with a sold-out sponsor roster to offer increased educational value for packagers of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, nutraceuticals and biologics. The former Pharmaceutical Packaging Forum, now Healthcare Packaging Conference & Workshops (http://www.healthcare-packaging.com/conference), will be held May 27 at the Hyatt Regency in Princeton, NJ. Produced by Healthcare Packaging, this event is designed for packaging decision-makers, including packaging engineers, validation and regulation specialists, package designers, security and quality control professionals, packaging sustainability managers and solution providers.
Healthcare Packaging Publisher Jim Chrzan comments on the changes to this year's event. "Our move from Philadelphia to Princeton underscores the educational nature of our conference, and offers additional convenience and affordability for attendees. We're also pleased to incorporate medical device packaging in this year's program. Topics such as sustainability, package design, compliance, FDA regulations, validation, and counterfeiting are critical issues, whether you are packaging pharmaceuticals or medical devices, so this was a logical content expansion. These changes, plus the addition of over a dozen afternoon breakout workshops, will appeal to today's professionals, who have limited time and resources. Our new format will deliver an efficient, affordable day, filled with relevant content and great networking opportunities."
Keynoting this year's general session will be Pfizer's Director of Global Packaging Technology, Geoffrey Glauser, who will speak on biopharmaceuticals, the cold chain and the regulatory environment. A representative from Watson Pharmaceuticals and other experts will discuss medical device packaging, compliance, transitioning from prescription to OTC markets, the FDA under Obama, and more. Afternoon breakout workshops will enable attendees to choose topics based on their needs. Workshops will address innovations in materials, sustainability, label printing, sorbent technology, aseptic packaging, automation, and more. Registration is now open at http://www.healthcare-packaging.com/conference.
