Program Highlights

Join this one-day interactive workshop after the 2024 PDA Medical Devices an Connected Health Conference, and join the discussion discussion with industry experts on micro needle systems and wearable injection devices!

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the 2024 PDA The Future of Drug Delivery Workshop taking place on 06 June 2024 in Antwerp, Belgium.

The workshop directly follows the 2024 PDA Medical Devices and Connected Health Conference and provides a useful context and perspective on the technologies, opportunities and realities of drug delivery – injectable and non-injectable – with a look at devices but also formulation technologies.

In a packed one-day program, acknowledged industry expert speakers will share their experience and insights on topics including the development, manufacture and regulatory aspects of drug delivery.

With GLP-1s being on everybody’s mind we will open the workshop with a presentation from Eli Lilly & company. How much will this progressive growth disrupt overall drug delivery and in other therapeutic areas?

There will be a series of brief but highly informative 'deep dive' presentations by leading experts on key drug delivery technologies ranging from large volume and wearable devices, nasal/pulmonary delivery, intradermal technologies, amongst others.

The day will include interactive roundtable sessions, and ample opportunity for Q&A discussions, including meeting the experts over networking lunch and coffee breaks.

We look forward to welcoming you!
