On Monday, CPhI Conferences hosted the Pre-Connect with six modules on themes including drug delivery systems and biosimilars.

With four different exhibitions in one (CPhI, P-MEC, InnoPack and ICSE) the event has become the world's melting pot and key point of the year to complete new deals, see innovative technologies and meet potential partners - attendees say it's invaluable to the industry.
