HAMILTON, N.J. and MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- InformEx, North America's leading business partnering event for buyers and sellers of high-value chemistry, has launched the 30th edition of its annual conference at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

More than 3,500 attendees from top pharmaceutical, fine chemical and specialty chemical companies are taking part in the conference. There's still time to attend; on-site registration is open.

"As we celebrate our 30th edition of InformEx, we reflect on how we've evolved over the past decades to meet the needs of the fine and specialty chemical industry around the world," said Nancy Largay, InformEx Brand Director.
