Making Pharmaceuticals - The Conference

The Making Pharmaceuticals conference programme is free to attend, with a huge choice of presentations on offer.

Most sessions run in parallel so you can move between the different conference rooms, creating your own tailored conference programme to suit your interests and professional information requirements.

If you would like to be involved in next year’s programme, please contact Victoria Emerton.

Making Pharmaceuticals is co-located with Distributing Pharmaceuticals – one registration gives you access to both conferences and the combined exhibition.
