Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific Program Planning Committee, it is our distinct pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you for the 14th PDA Parenteral Packaging Conference hosted by the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) which will take place on 23 - 24 April 2024 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The overarching conference theme is “Navigating Complexity: Quality, Innovation, and Supply Chain Resilience in Packaging”.

Packaging development activities for parenteral drugs extend far beyond isolated discussions around just the packaging aspects themselves. It requires a holistic and integrated approach that takes into account the different development interfaces.

In an era marked by unprecedented challenges and rapid advancements, our overarching theme reflects the core issues facing the pharmaceutical packaging industry. Throughout the conference, we will delve into crucial topics such as Container Closure Integrity and deep cold storage, innovation in packaging technologies, and the imperative need for supply chain resilience. Additional agenda topics include regulatory updates, interactions between drugs and primary containers, sustainability, and many more.

Beyond the presentations in the plenary and parallel tracks, this conference also offers guided poster walks, tech talk sessions, an exhibition as well as a networking event allowing you to catch up with friends and peers in the industry.

Thank you for your continued commitment to advancing the field of parenteral packaging.
We hope you share our excitement of bringing together industry leaders, experts, and professionals to explore the dynamic environment of parenteral packaging and we look forward to welcoming you in Copenhagen.

Sincerely,
The Co-Chairs
