“We believe INTERPHEX is the industry innovation event in North America,” said Kate Scott, Event Director, INTERPHEX. “We are delighted that many leading exhibitors are bringing more equipment and launching innovative technologies designed to reduce costs, increase productivity and maximize efficiencies. Celebrating 40 years is a huge milestone. INTERPHEX has a long history of being at the forefront of the latest and greatest in innovation.”

“INTERPHEX has a rich history of being the place to go for new and cutting edge,” said Russ Somma, PhD, Chair of the INTEPRHEX Technical Advisory Board and President, SommaTech Consulting. “Exhibitors debut their newest equipment and technology. Pharmaceutical professionals covering the full product lifecycle investigate the equipment they need, understand its functionalities and even buy on the show floor.”

“Because INTERPHEX is located near many of the nation’s pharmaceutical companies, it’s a cost-effective way to see a lot of innovations that you’d normally have to travel to Europe to see,” explained Sterling Kline, Vice President at IPS-Integrated Project Services. “Industry professionals bring full teams to compare options and even see multiple vendors in one place to integrate equipment.”
