On 22 January 2016, MedPharmPlast Europe members came together in Brussels for their General Assembly and Conference.
This event was scheduled to take place in December 2015, but due to the exceptional situation in Brussels, the conference had to be postponed and re-scheduled to January 2016.
The event started with the General Assembly for members only, followed by a networking lunch and the Open Session Conference on invitation only - for all members and selected invited external companies. The conference gave participants an insight into current important topics concerning the medical devices and pharmaceutical packaging industry.
