PPL Conclave 2024

Championing innovation, powering progress

Packaging and labeling in pharma has witnessed significant developments in response to evolving needs of the industry with an emphasis on safety, quality, sustainability and technological innovation.

Be it temperature-controlled packaging solutions to meet the exacting standards for biologics and vaccines, integration of drug delivery systems into packaging for better patient outcomes, enhanced patient engagement through interactive packaging, adoption of biodegradable options to minimise environmental impact, use of anti-counterfeiting technologies or colour-shifting inks, packaging and labelling done right are adding significant value to this industry.

As these trends continue to evolve, the future of pharma packaging and labelling holds exciting possibilities. So, Pharma Packaging and Labelling (PPL) Conclave 2024 aims to identify and harness pivotal trends in the dynamic landscape of pharma packaging. The conference will bring together industry experts to discuss strategies to achieve a balance between innovation and cost, functionality and aesthetics, as well as utility and sustainability. It will provide a platform for leaders and veterans in the pharma packaging and labelling industry to collaboratively address new challenges and surpass the mounting expectations within the pharma sector.
