Pharma.Aero are collaborating with FlyPharma Conferences on their upcoming event

FlyPharma Conferences and Pharma.Aero are joining together to support a collaborative platform for forward-thinking pharma and cargo professionals at this year’s FlyPharma Conference Europe, with a view to discussing key pharma supply chain challenges affecting all stakeholders.

As Association Patron for all three regional FlyPharma Conferences (in Asia, Europe and the US), Pharma.Aero’s partnership with FlyPharma has gained momentum in the run-up to FlyPharma Europe, taking place on 5-6 June 2018 in Brussels, Belgium. The two organizations have worked closely together on the agenda, offering a huge range of experience from both sides.

Frank Van Gelder, Pharma.Aero’s Secretary General, says: “The created added value of such a collaboration is the result of both organizations’ focus within the industry. Pharma.Aero supports this principle because it creates a stronger input and a broader focus to deliver quality content conference programs. Our unique approach as Pharma.Aero, in which we foster cross-industrial cooperation between on the one hand pharmaceutical companies and on the other hand operators and service providers, is the perfect recipe for finding solutions to the industry’s current challenges.”

FlyPharma Europe’s Events Director, Angela Cottrell, added: “It has been a pleasure to work with Pharma.Aero and tap into the team’s experience and ideas. I believe this year’s agenda is stronger than ever and am keen to showcase our exciting range of speakers. I’m looking forward to welcoming delegates through the conference doors in June.”

Chaired by Rafik H. Bishara, PhD, Former Director of QKMTS, Eli Lilly and Company, the conference is a great opportunity to learn from and network with other leading pharma and cargo professionals. With collaboration being a core theme, FlyPharma Europe’s panels and presentations will demonstrate how the possibilities of a fully integrated, visible supply chain will show delegates how to cut costs, create greater efficiency and reach patients faster.
