March 16, 2020 – Spartanburg, SC – Due to growing Covid-19 health concerns regarding travel and large gatherings, several cleanroom conferences, meetings and tradeshows have been rescheduled or postponed. Contec will continue participating in these events on the rescheduled date and will inform our customers with any other news or changes.
Interphex has been rescheduled from April to July 15-17, 2020 at the Javits Center in New York City. Contec will be attending to showcase several new products as well as VAL, a new online interactive product selection and training tool.
INTERPHEX, the premier event dedicated to pharmaceutical and biotechnology innovation, technology and knowledge from development through commercialization, will be postponed due to the COVID-19 virus.
INTERPHEX 2020, previously scheduled for April 28th through 30th at the Javits Center in New York City, will now take place July 15th through 17th, 2020 at the Javits Center in New York.
INTERPHEX’s mission is to be the event where industry professionals and leading suppliers come together to find solutions to develop and manufacture cost-effective, quality therapeutics for the global population.
PDA Annual Conference
The PDA Annual Meeting has been postponed to July 20-22, 2020. Here, microbiologist Mark Wiencek, PhD will present about the decontamination of hazardous drugs and Beta-lactam antibiotics from cleanroom surfaces using a sporicidal disinfectant.
PDA has implemented a set of measures to protect participants at PDA events from potential risks related to COVID-19 as best as possible. This includes a close and regular monitoring of the situation, adherence to recommendations of health authorities and official travel warnings, possibilities of remote presentations, and precautions being implemented at our venues.
Regarding the 2020 PDA Annual Meeting in Raleigh, NC, we have been following the situation very closely. In light of the situation with a growing number of our participants not being able to travel, we are rescheduling the 2020 PDA Annual Meeting to July 20-22, 2020 at the same venues.
Contec both recognizes and supports the urgent call for social distancing behavior (meeting postponement, limiting site visitors to facilities, etc.) and has therefore accelerated the launch of its online learning and training tool, VAL™. VAL can be used anywhere to provide product selection guidance and education.
