Congresul PHARM Connect

Congresul PHARM Connect este cel mai mare si mai important eveniment de afaceri pentru industria farmaceutica si biotehnologica din Europa Centrala si de Est si regiunea CSI, ce are loc in fiecare an in februarie, in Budapesta, Ungaria.

Inca de la lansarea in 2011, evenimentul a reunit peste 500 de participanti din cel putin 20 de tari din regiune si nu numai. Pe durata celor doua zile ale congresului, furnizori de top din industria farmaceutica si biotehnologica – acoperind o gama larga de solutii si servicii de la API si contracte de fabricatie la comanda la procesare, solutii biofarma, substante si preparate biofarmaceutice si biologice, sisteme de livrare a medicamentelor, camere curate, echipamente de laborator, sisteme de control si monitorizare, controlul calitatii, ambalare si etichetare, automatizare, inginerie tehnologica si intretinere, logistica, depozitare la temperaturi controlate, distributie si multe altele – au sansa de a intalni principalii factori de decizie din companiile vizate.


Operarea strict pe baza de invitatii ofera garantia participarii delegatilor la cel mai inalt nivel. Fiecare furnizor este selectat inainte de eveniment in functie de cerintele si nevoile specialistilor participanti din industria farmaceutica.

Perspective de actualitate ale pietei

Nivelul inalt al calitatii programului congresului este asigurat prin stransa colaborare cu importante asociatii de specialitate regionale si locale, parteneri mass-media europeni si globali si Comitetul Consultativ, ai carui membri sunt experti binecunoscuti de la companii de top din industria farmaceutica si biotehnologica. Programul acopera cele mai actuale subiecte si tendinte ale pietei in domeniul R&D, productie, inginerie, lant de aprovizionare si managementul calitatii.

Intalniri de afaceri prestabilite

Pe durata celor doua zile, furnizorii vor avea ocazia sa intalneasca importanti factori de decizie si experti din industrie, prin intermediul intalnirilor de afaceri fata-in-fata prestabilite si alte activitati de relationare, sistemul reprezentand o sansa unica pentru dezvoltarea unor relatii de afaceri semnificative si valoroase.

Congresul ofera, de asemenea, participantilor posibilitatea de a vizita, in cadrul excursiilor special organizate, centre importante de productie farmaceutica, toate activitatile putand fi prestabilite prin sistemul „Meeting Scheduler”.


Afacerile de succes sunt intotdeauna realizate intr-o atmosfera excelenta; acesta este motivul pentru care organizam congresul la Corinthia Grand Hotel in centrul Budapestei.

One-to-One interview with Terry Siggins, GE IP


Videojet Technologies received the 2nd Central Eastern European Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Excellence Award in 2016


TEG with the support of the Hungarian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (MAGYOSZ) handed out the 2nd Central Eastern European Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Excellence Award in 2016 to honour, recognise and promote outstanding manufacturing excellence solutions in the rapidly growing region of CEE. The award was handed out at the award ceremony at the PHARM Connect Congress 2016 in Budapest.

The 2nd Central Eastern European Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Excellence Award ceremony together with the cocktail reception was opened by Dr. Lajos Hegedüs former Managing Director of Teva Pharmaceuticals Hungary and now the Chairman of the Production Commission at MAGYOSZ who announced the winner and handed out the award to Videojet Technologies, emphasising that these tried method will encourage professionals to constantly raise standards and come up with outstanding manufacturing excellence solutions, to further contribute to the development of the rapidly growing CEE region.

The jury selected the joint winner for the following reasons:

  • Videojet winner designed a Thermal inject printer for integration into complex track and trace lines.
  • In cooperation with a solution provider company they conducted comprehensive trials to confirm the product’s    suitability in terms of integration, performance and control.
  • Several new innovative features had been built into the product. To meet certain physical constrains the printer is 60% smaller than comparable legacy print controllers. It offers a range of possibilities for secure integration. It offers innovative, new possibilities to add surplus print-heads. The product fitted with a display for presenting machine diagnostics, but with no ability to input data or to access printer control to avoid operator interference or errors.
  • Due to the built-in productivity improvements the new printer reduces ink consumption, reduce line stops and changeovers, reduce operator error and improve operational security.
