Expoquimia hosts PharmaProcess, a space dedicated exclusively to the pharmaceutical industry

For the first time, the pharmaceutical sector will have its own exhibition space at the coming Expoquimia, which will be held from the 14th to the 18th of November this year in Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via exhibition centre. With the name PharmaProcess, International Show at the service of the Pharmaceutical Industry, the pharmaceutical sector will have a meeting point at the 16th edition of the Spanish chemistry industry’s leading show. A Companies that develop equipment, products and services for the pharmaceutical sector will attend this first edition of PharmaProcess, which was created after the collaboration agreement signed in 2008 by the president of the Organising Committee, Rafael Foguet, and by the then president of the ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) Spain, Antonio Buendía.

The president of the ISPE Spain is currently Sergio Torralbo, who said “Being a well-established show, Expoquimia is the best commercial platform to respond to the concerns of the sector, which are reflected in the first edition of PharmaProcess”. PharmaProcess will be held in pavilion 7 of the Gran Via exhibition centre and will also host a packed programme of technical-scientific activities.

The Innovation Zone will provide the setting for the launch of next generation products that will contribute to improving quality of life; the Innovation Seminars will reveal the technical features of each product and, in the scientific workshops, prestigious experts will collaborate with trade visitors to improve their product ranges. The list of events includes Technical Proficiency Courses, various round tables and several technical seminars.

This pharmaceutical industry event completes the wide range of exhibits at Expoquimia 2011 in a particularly important edition, since it is the only event that the world chemistry industry is holding in 2011, designated International Year of Chemistry by the United Nations.

The ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1980 and with over 23,000 members in 81 countries. The Spanish branch was created in 2006 and aims to contribute to developing pharmaceutical industry professionals. Spanish is the seventh pharmaceutical manufacturing country in Europe and has 39,000 workers.
