IPEC-Americas has been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation as well as advice from each state and the CDC. With the current CDC recommendations to cancel all meetings and events with greater than 50 people for the next 8 weeks we have elected to cancel Excipient World 2020. This decision was not taken lightly, but we believe this to be in the best interest of public health and all our attendees, exhibitors and speakers. Information about next steps will be emailed directly to exhibitors, speakers, and registered attendees.
