New Geneva-based event is set to bring together innovators in pharma packaging, devices and processing.
London, United Kingdom, 22nd March 2022 / Sciad Newswire / Leading international events company Easyfairs today opens online registration for Connect in Pharma, the new event for the European pharma and biopharma community. The first edition of the event, taking place on 14 & 15 September 2022, will create a new vision of the future of pharma and biopharma packaging, devices and production.
Connect in Pharma will unite suppliers, specifiers and other influencers in four key areas of pharmaceutical production downstream from the molecule: packaging, medical devices, contract manufacturing (CMO/CDMO) and processing equipment. Alongside the exhibition, Connect in Pharma will host a range of features and initiatives designed to inspire and connect the community at the live event – as well as via an array of digital channels throughout the year.
The event is strategically located in Geneva, at the heart of a number of leading European pharma and biotech clusters in France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany. The event has also partnered with leading associations such as Polepharma and Lyonbiopole, BioAlps, Swiss Biotech, Bionow in the UK and more.
Connect in Pharma is the latest launch from Europe’s leading network of events for the packaging supply chain, organised by Easyfairs, which takes place across 10 countries.
Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Packaging at Easyfairs, said: “The pharmaceutical market is experiencing incredible advances in drug delivery, packaging and contract manufacturing; but there was no event serving this sector in the heart of Europe. We are very excited to see so much enthusiasm already around Connect in Pharma and are very confident that it will create a fresh new hub for innovation and business in this market. The event will give both pharma companies and their suppliers an unrivalled opportunity to discover and shape the future of their products and the wider sector.”

Bringing Together Innovators
Visitors to Connect in Pharma can expect to discover a range of innovative new drug delivery, packaging, filling, and assembling solutions as well as hearing from contract development manufacturing organisations (CDMO) that are changing the way drugs are brought to market.
With new developments in the field, including personalised treatments and nanotechnology among others, even greater changes are expected in the near future.
Heike Lang, Head of Marketing & Communications at Sanner GmbH, said: “Connect in Pharma has the potential to become the top event for pharmaceutical packaging and for CDMOs in Europe. As one of the key players for primary packaging and medical devices, we want to be part of this development from the very start.”
Collaboration and Partnerships
Over 60 industry-leading suppliers and associations in the pharma and biopharma sector have already signed up to exhibit at the event, including Becton Dickinson SAS, Staubli Robotics, ARaymondlife, Essentra, Gerresheimer, IMA Automation, Körber AG, MARCHESINI GROUP SPA, Nextpharm, and Unither Pharmaceuticals, among others. A full list can be found at https://www.connectinpharma.com/exhibitor/.
Stephanie Pellet, Marketing Manager at ARaymondlife, said the company was looking to showcase new injectable drugs and meet other companies. “We decided to join this new event because the pharmaceutical industry in Switzerland is a highly developed sector, from large corporations to small start-ups and research centres. This European-wide event is perfect in terms of the format and the time of year.”
Isabelle Levy-Dessart, WW Marketing Communication Associate Director at BD, said: “We believe that Connect in Pharma will be an exciting new force driving business and innovation in the pharma market, and we can't wait to meet the whole market in Geneva.”
Geographical Heart of the Global Pharma and Biotech Worlds
Geneva, where Connect in Pharma will take place, provides the ideal meeting place to bring together leading pharmaceutical companies, biotechs and suppliers.
Christian Frayret, Global Sales Director of Technoflex, said the location was one of the reasons Technoflex was eager to attend. “We strongly believe it’s the right place to highlight our innovative products dedicated to the pharma and biotech markets."
The first edition of Connect in Pharma will take place on 14 & 15 September 2022 at Palexpo Congress centre in Geneva, conveniently located next to the Geneva airport.
