Building on the proud history of Ireland’s Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Sector the summit will focus on the themes of manufacturing innovation in the morning session and Drug Delivery in the afternoon session.

The objective of the conference is to showcase Ireland’s expertise in high quality BioPharma manufacturing and to bring together the various groups involved in the sector under one independent annual conference.

Our choice of venue in the National Conference Centre distinguishes this Conference as the new dynamic force for the sector.
