Adapting to a New World of Pharma Supply Chains
Through Collaboration, Change and Agility
The World’s Largest Life Science Temperature Controlled Supply Chain Summit, formerly known as Cold Chain Global Forum.

We are the world’s most innovative and educational event covering all you need to know about optimizing your end-to-end supply chain from a patient-centric, regulatory-compliant and cost effective perspective. We’re taking a deep dive into today’s most pressing challenges regarding the impact that COVID-19 has on the pharma supply chain and the new normal that will emerge post-pandemic.

For the first time, we’re introducing specific content tracks for senior executive functions, like: supply chain, logistics, quality, packaging, transportation, distribution, warehousing and operations. Our interactive discussion groups and collaborative exercises are designed to help stakeholders break down silos across the supply chain and will address overlapping functional challenges.
