MCI Group is proud to announce the annual MENA Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Conference, which will be held in Dubai on 3rd and 4th June 2014. The conference is supported by international and regional partners including Cool Chain Association and Supply Chain & Logistics Group
According to the Cold Chain Biopharma Logistics Sourcebook 2011, world sales of temperature-sensitive drugs and of biologics products will near $250 billion by 2015. Due to this strong sales growth, the cold chain logistic services market will hit $10.7 billion by 2017, from its current figures of US$ 6.7 billion, according to the Global Healthcare Cold Chain Logistics Market Report & Forecast.
Temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products are the future of the healthcare industry with the Middle East and North Africa region witnessing a boom. Nearly 80% of pharmaceuticals are imported from foreign countries and managing the cold chain distribution network becomes a complex process and needs an efficient packaging, storage and transportation system. Pharmaceutical companies are facing stiff challenges in handling temperature controlled drugs and require advanced technologies to protect products in hot climatic zones.
This two day event will bring together professionals from pharmaceutical, government agencies and regulators, logistics, distribution houses, airlines, storage and warehousing, packaging and other solution providing companies to discuss various strategies, innovations and solutions for the cold chain industry.
The conference sponsored by Softbox and Thermo King, will feature industry experts from companies like GlaxoSmithKline, Julphar, Novartis, Pfizer Gulf, Ferring Pharmaceutical, International SOS, Dnata and more on latest technologies used to protect the products and offer safety to end users. The conference will help attendees to understand the framework set up by each stakeholder to ensure integrity of the products and how to maximize efficiency and profitability.
