CONFERENCE PROGRAM

Excipient World 2020 Program

Only Excipient World offers a deep dive into excipients – a vital component to making safe and effective drugs and healthcare products. The market is changing on a global scale. Excipient World’s internationally recognized education program, produced by IPEC-Americas, provides the latest delivery innovations, novel excipients, supply chain solutions, research and regulations, and much more at in-depth workshops, engaging education sessions, rapid fire poster presentations and keynote addresses. Our speakers represent the entire industry, with experts from pharmaceutical, biologic and animal health drug and healthcare product manufacturers and excipient manufacturers to nonprofit organizations and government entities, including FDA.

Attendees can continue their education by visiting with dozens of excipient manufacturers, distributors and manufacturing service providers in the exhibit hall.
