Pharmapack Europe returns February 1-2, 2023 at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles Paris. The much-awaited Pharmapack Awards will return this year celebrating the best products and innovations from the pharma packaging world. Entries are due by October 21, 2022, with an awards ceremony on February 1, 2023.
Pharmapack will run in hybrid form extending its value both pre- and post-event—with the online platform opening on January 18 and running until February 17. The event provides insights into the latest trends and innovations in the pharmaceutical packaging and drug delivery industries with networking and in person sessions.
Highlights will include the returning innovation gallery, which will showcase exhibitor innovations submitted via the Pharmapack Awards, providing a window on the latest trends and cutting-edge developments. Attendees will also have the chance to take part in guided expert-led walk-throughs on innovation tours.
The Start-up hub is a dedicated area of the show for companies developing and expanding new technologies in the fields of pharmaceutical packaging, labelling, drug delivery device design, and engineering. It will present a window into tomorrow’s innovations today, providing attendees the opportunity to explore these products before commercial launch. The pitch sessions give Pharmapack audiences the chance to hear directly about these early-stage ideas, while the learning labs provide an opportunity to hear from different exhibitors on their research and products.
The online offerings at the event extend the value of Pharmapack beyond the two days in Paris, with exclusive educational sessions and a platform to schedule meetings with exhibitors and bookmark important sessions. These tools help attendees maximize the value they get at the in-person event by enabling them to preselect exhibitors and schedule onsite meetings—as well providing the ability to catch up with anything they miss post-event.
An essential center point of the event remains the Pharmapack Awards, hosted live on the show floor they feature two district Awards. The Pharmapack Health Product Awards recognize excellence in commercialized packaging or drug delivery solutions from pharmaceutical, veterinary, biopharma, or OEM companies. Entries are open to all the industry and will be evaluated by a jury of independent pharmacists, physicians, and experts in patient-centric and sustainable packaging.
The Pharmapack Health Product Awards have three categories:
- Patient-Centric Design Award: Recognizing innovative design of packaging or drug delivery solutions which prioritize patient experience and adherence for improved health outcomes.
- Eco-Design Award: Recognizing products and solutions which prioritize recyclability, environmental awareness, and a reduced carbon footprint.
- Animal Health Award: Recognizing products and solutions which improve or enhance health outcomes and the well-being of animals.
The second award sees prizes bestowed for Exhibitor Innovations, which are open to all confirmed exhibitors with innovations that have a timeline for launch up until the end of 2024. The award has five categories spanning innovation in: drug delivery, packaging, sustainability, packaging machinery, and supply chain, logistics, and distribution.
