IBC Life Sciences Announces Plans to Make Biopharmaceutical Development & Production (BDP) Week the Most Comprehensive Concept-to-Commercialization Conference Experience

IBC Life Sciences, an Informa business dedicated to providing rich conference content, valuable connections and business development opportunities, today opened the 11th Annual Single-Use Applications 2014 conference with the news that it will combine four events to create the most in-depth and comprehensive concept-to -commercialization experience for biopharmaceutical professionals.

Biopharmaceutical Development & Production (BDP) Week will now be combined with the 12th Annual Single-Use Applications for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing; 3rd Annual Flexible Facilities; and, 2nd Annual Environmental Monitoring and Contamination Control events. This expanded BDP Week will be held March 30 – April 2, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.

The trend in the industry is seeing companies rapidly scaling up toward commercial-scale manufacturing utilizing single-use platforms in more flexible facilities with novel monitoring and control systems. A major contributor to reducing timelines is the integration between process development, analytical and production departments to collectively overcome the complex drug manufacturing challenges to ultimately get these sensitive biologics to market.

“We are reinforcing our manufacturing programming to help companies get out front and master these new industry trends,” says Barry Walsh, Program Director, IBC Life Sciences. “By combining four of our leading biologics events we are creating the most in depth biologics manufacturing event in the industry that will deliver an unrivalled experience. Whether you’re an analytical chemist, head of process development, a manufacturing engineer or quality professional, BDP Week is the premier event to attend focused on all aspects of biologics manufacturing from clinical to commercial.”

Additionally, he said, the co-location makes for an even more productive and comprehensive conference experience for attendees and an increasingly lucrative environment for sponsors and exhibitors.

For more than a decade, BDP Week and its predecessor Antibody Development and Production have provided biopharmaceutical professionals with knowledge they need for development and regulatory landscape navigation from the bench to market. The addition of Single-Use, Flexible Facilities and Environmental Monitoring and Contamination Control not only reinforces BDP Week as the most comprehensive biologics manufacturing event on the market, but also IBC Life Sciences’ commitment to providing its attendees, sponsors and exhibitors with the best possible development opportunities available.
