LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, September 7, 2017 / -- SMi Group are thrilled to announce that an agenda has been released for Europe's leading 10th annual conference and exhibition on Pre-Filled Syringes which returns to Central London on 17th and 18th January 2018. Pre-Filled Syringes Europe will once again provide a platform to discuss new advancements and showcase the latest innovations in a dynamic and booming PFS market.

Building on the success of SMi's sell-out global 2017 PFS series of events which saw 100+ attendees join shows in London, Boston and San Diego, the agenda for Pre-Filled Syringes Europe 2018 has been carefully tailored to arm delegates with key requirements and tools to adapt to an ever-changing medical landscape.

It will address questions on the impact to the PFS industry following: an increase in the number of generics and biosimilars hitting the market; a trend in the rise of self-administered drugs and personalised medicine; and Britain’s recent decision to leave Europe.

As well as a regulatory update from the MHRA, agenda highlights will include topical talks surrounding combination products, digital connectivity, smart devices, human factor engineering, patient safety, extractable & leachable studies, and formulation development.
