CT hosts global meds conference

Cape Town is set to become the first city in Africa to host the 14th Annual International Generic Pharmaceutical Alliance (IGPA) Conference, a premier event for the global generic medicines industry.

Providing an opportunity for the international pharmaceutical community to gather the latest information in the pharmaceutical world, the conference will be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) from the 1 – 3 November 2011. The theme of the conference this year is "Breaking Barriers to Medicine Access" – an everyday issue facing many of us.

Past IGPA conferences have drawn delegates from more than 32 international countries and attracted the attendance of CEO's of major Generic Medicines companies. This year the conference expects delegates from even more countries, creating the ideal platform to network with key industry local, regional and international players. Not to mention the opportunity to gain direct knowledge from the very best generic practitioners from around the globe, sharing knowledge among research, academia and commercial organisations as well as new business development potential.

Be part of this international delegation, come learn about the latest industry trends and acquire insight into scientific, regulatory, intellectual property and commercial fields relating to the global pharmaceutical sector.

The conference offers a limited number of premium sponsorship packages, entitling sponsors to varying degrees of branding and exhibition rights. For details on exhibition and sponsorship opportunities you can visit www.igpacapetown2011.com. - (Health24, August 2011)
