We are delighted to announce the new date for our MedPharmPlast Europe General Assembly and Conference on Friday, 22 January 2016 in Brussels (exact location to be communicated in due course).

Due to the exceptional situation in Brussels in November, we had to postpone our conference scheduled to take place on 01 December. But to postpone is not to abandon! We are looking forward to welcoming you on the new date.

As originally planned, we will start with a Closed Session for members only from 10:00 - 11:30. After a Networking Lunch (11:30 - 12:30), we will hold an Open Session Conference on invitation only (for all members and invited non-members) from 12:30 - 16:30. The conference will give you an update on important topics concerning the medical devices and pharmaceutical packaging industry.
