It will feature an expanded show footprint ideal for networking, sourcing, education and innovation in drug development and manufacturing.

Two new zones including a Bioprocessing Zone and the P-MEC Zone, a machinery zone to promote the latest technology in manufacturing equipment, will join legacy zones, InformEx, iCSE, FDF, InnoPack and CPhI.
