The presentations throughout the conference highlight strategies for effective portfolio management, a secure supply chain, IP and patent protection, the creation of successful long-term partnerships and more. These are all key components for finding success in the changing pharma market." She further noted that, "the differentiating factor of this conference comes from the fact that industry colleagues are presenting this information. These are the people that have quality first-hand insight on using CMOs and CROs for Biopharma and can offer a knowledgeable look at the strategic and operational future of contract manufacturing and research. The end goal here is to offer an event that will create value and help attendees maximize their ROI."

The Strategies in Pharma Outsourcing conference programme will run in a conference format with a range of content-rich educational sessions and high-impact networking sessions. The pre-conference programme on 23 April will run as a half day agenda focused on all aspects of the supply chain and value chain and will include two networking and refreshment sessions. The two full day agendas will each begin with state of the market addresses followed by break out tracks focused on either contract manufacturing outsourcing (CMO) or contract research outsourcing (CRO). After a catered networking lunch, the conference will then head into an afternoon of industry relevant learning and networking for both the CMO and CRO sectors.

Topics will include the realities of the changing market, creating a secure supply chain, quality and integrity of supply, successful partnership creation and management and more over the two days.
