Pharmalucence and Bosch Packaging Technology are co-sponsoring an educational event on March 11 through 13 at the Burlington Marriott Hotel in Burlington, MA for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Professionals.  We would like to extend an invitation to join us for Innovation Symposium 2013, Injectable Drug Manufacturing. The Symposium will focus on issues facing manufacturers (or outsource manufacturers) of injectable pharmaceuticals. We have assembled an impressive cast of specialists to provide the latest industry information and case studies.

The event is being offered at no cost but seating is limited. Attendees are only responsible for their travel and housing costs, if required. A significantly discounted room rate of $159 at the Marriott is available to attendees through 2/25/13.  This is an exceptional opportunity to learn and network with fellow bio/pharma professionals in a “sales free” environment in which they can learn about technology and ask questions directly to industry professionals. Partnering on this venture with Pharmalucence and Bosch Packaging Technology are IMA Life North America, Millipore, Sartorius, and IPS.

Our agenda is provided below.  We hope to see you there.

March 11th – Evening reception at Hotel

March 12th – Full day of presentations, evening networking dinner cruise on Boston Harbor aboard the Sprit of Boston

March 13th – Half day of presentations, afternoon Pharmalucence facility tour.
