2016 International Pharmaceutical Distribution Conference

September 12 to 13, 2016 | Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel, London, England

The Third Annual International Pharmaceutical Distribution Conference (IPDC) brought together pharmaceutical distributors, manufacturers and supply chain executives from around the globe to discuss business practices and emerging strategies that preserve patient safety, enhance security and achieve efficiencies in the worldwide marketplace. This year’s conference was co-hosted with the Healthcare Distribution Association UK (HDA UK), European Healthcare Distribution Association (GIRP) and the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers (IFPW).

Senior executives and leading industry experts discussed key business issues and built collaborative supply chain partnerships. Educational sessions touched upon such critical topics as:

  • Global efforts surrounding medicines verification and pharmaceutical product traceability;
  • The political and policy landscape shaping pharmaceutical distribution in the European, U.K. and U.S. markets — including issues such as disposal, antibiotic resistance and prescription drug abuse;
  • Cargo security trends and strategies to mitigate thefts in the international supply chain;
  • Comparing Good Distribution Practices (GDPs) in the U.S. and EU, and the value of global standards;
  • The regulation, introduction and distribution of biosimilars worldwide;
  • Perspectives from industry and financial analysts on the pharmaceutical supply chain.
