Pharma MES Berlin 2018: Beyond the hype

The 7th edition of Pharma MES Berlin was unanimously characterized as a successful conference. More than 200 registered attendees gathered in Berlin to shape the future of technology development and MES in pharma during 2.5 event days filled with case studies, interactive formats and networking sessions.

One thing became clear: the Pharma MES is here to stay. There is still a need for discussion and planning, but most importantly the need for collaboration across job functions and with different stakeholders to maximize the effectiveness of these technologies and tools.
