Recent reports indicate that the global pharmaceutical contract manufacturing market will be worth US$40.7 billion by 2015, But are you effectively leveraging external supply and managing the risks involved to make the most of your outsourcing options?

As the pharmaceutical industry relies on faster drug development and cost containment to maintain growth, there has never been a more important time to develop strategic CMO alliances to facilitate entry into emerging markets, reduce costs and increase product revenue.  But with so many CMOs to choose from, how can you guarantee that you have the right partner to provide the services you require with minimal risk and maximum efficiency?

Global Pharmaceutical Contract Manufacturing Online will deliver all of the information that you need in order for you to create new and nurture existing CMO relationships across the globe.  This series of interactive webinars will demonstrate how to overcome the challenges of contract manufacturing and will help to identify the strategies needed to ensure you reap the benefits in terms of cost, time and quality.

We appreciate that travel, time and budget restrictions have meant that not everyone has been able to attend our real-world event series and have therefore created an exciting online industry first  to ensure that everyone can gain access to the latest thinking from the global leaders in this field.

In order to accommodate your schedule, the series will run live from 16th - 25th January but all sessions will also be available on-demand, allowing you to catch up on any missed sessions at a time convenient to you.

Be sure to secure your spot on the only recorded online pharmaceutical contract manufacturing summit.

We look forward to seeing you online!

1. This online event showcases LIVE, real-time presentations.

Our entire speaker faculty will be presenting their knowledge and expertise on contract manufacturing strategies via your computer. From the comfort of your home or office, you can listen and watch the presentations in real-time and interact with the speaker and other manufacturing professionals that share similar challenges. And if your schedule isn't flexible to the LIVE presentations, don't worry; you will be able to view ALL sessions on-demand so that you can participate at your convenience.

This online event not only gives you the chance to meet pharmaceutical and CMO professionals that are in the same boat as you, you'll be able to have extensive discussions, live ongoing interactivity and continuous sharing of best practices.

Don't forget to join our LinkedIn group where you can network and continue to interact with professionals like yourself. (Our LinkedIn Group is Pharma IQ - The Network for Pharma & Biotech Professionals...)
