Adapt to Regulation Change & Manage Increasing Costs in Your Life Sciences Supply Chain

Join the leaders in Life Sciences Supply Chain for an in-depth discussion that will help you shape up your strategy for tackling new regulations and reducing cost pressures.

The Life Sciences Supply Chain Summit is the only event that brings together all segments of the life sciences supply chain. Every year, senior supply chain executives from pharmaceuticals manufacturers, medical devices manufacturers and hospital groups attend for elite-level, interactive peer discussions. If the North American life sciences supply chain is your business, this is the one event that you cannot afford to miss.

I found the format to be very interactive and really enjoyed the opportunity to network with colleagues in the Life Sciences sector. I was able to ground my strategy for the next 24 months based on the input from several of the presenters and through various networking conversations.

Scott Gregg, Sr. Director Global Logistics, Philips Healthcare

Through a number of presentations, panels and interactive peer discussions, get up-to-date knowledge on:

  • Assessing the Impact of Global Regulation on your Supply Chain - hear how your peers are preparing for the latest global regulation, with specific discussion on the EU GDP
  • End-to-End Value Chain Collaboration - as hospitals and health systems fight to cut costs and become more 'supply chain capable', discuss how your supply chain will be affected
  • Overcoming Obstacles to Supply Chain Globalisation - Use your existing supply chain expertise in emerging markets as a key driver for growth and ensure you outrival the competition
  • Best Practices to Audit your Relationship with your LSP - See how you can balance KPIs and SLAs with a personal relationship to create an efficient and flexible supply chain
  • Collaboration - Explore the latest in collaborating through your supply chain to manage risk, increase visibility, improve forecasting and lobbying governments to reduce compliance lag
  • Regulation – Ensure that you comply with new local regulation, as well as keeping on top of European and US regulatory developments

The conference was an excellent forum to share, benchmark and network with industry players. It focused on current issues the pharmaceutical industry is dealing with. I recommend this event to anyone interested in learning best practices and networking with peers in the industry.

Luis Perez, Sr. Director Global Logistics, Merck
