Rx-360 Connects with New Members at ChemSpec USA
Rx-360 was present once again at the 2nd ChemSpec USA meeting in Philadelphia, May 8-9, 2012. ChemSpec Events are the only series of events dedicated specifically to the fine and specialty chemicals market. The event provided the perfect setting for Rx-360 to connect with major players from around the world. We had a number of interested folks stop by the booth; as a result we held approximately 20 meetings with interested companies and Rx-360 membership continues to grow!
Special thanks to Eric Peter (Hovione), Joe Barendt (Chiral), Ken Crossley (VWR), Barb Lord (Chiral), and Karen Schultze (GSK) for representing Rx-360 at the Rx-360 booth. And special thanks to the ChemSpec USA folks for allowing Rx-360 to participate with a booth and providing promotional support. Thanks to all who helped make this a successful event!

CPhI Worldwide is the premier event on the calendar of those involved in the pharmaceutical supply chain, including Rx-360. From October 9-11, Rx-360 will join nearly 30,000 attendees in Feria de Madrid, Spain for CPhI Worldwide 2012. UBM Live, the CPhI organizers, have recognized the critical role Rx-360 plays and they have supported Rx-360’s presence at the show for the past three years.
In addition, the organizers have made it possible for Rx-360 to hold a Q&A Session at the Feria de Madrid, meeting room N106, on Wednesday, October 10 between 3:30-5:15pm. This is an open session where buyers and suppliers of APIs are invited to better understand the benefits of Rx-360 membership and how it can be a critical element in a sound supplier qualification program. All members and non-members, professionals of procurement, supply chain, purchasing, quality and regulatory affairs areas are welcome to join us – to register for this Open Rx-360 Session, please email [email protected].
On the same day in Madrid, EFCG, the European Industry association representing European API producers, will hold its annual dinner (Annual European Fine Chemicals Dinner).
