Next year’s Pharma Logistics Masterclass heads to Dallas Fort Worth, USA (29 Sept – 3 Oct 2024)

After three successful editions in Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, the 4th Pharma Logistics Masterclass is set to take place in Dallas, Texas, from 29 September to 3 October 2024. For this edition, Pharma.Aero and the University of Antwerp team up with Dallas Fort Worth Airport, a member of the Pharma.Aero.

The Pharma Logistics Masterclass is a unique international joint initiative focusing on the Life Sciences supply chain logistics. The 5-day event combines academic lectures, with industry use cases, workshops and industry-related site visits.

Dallas Fort Worth is proud and honored to be host to the University of Antwerp, and the Pharma.Aero members who are committed to a sustainable, ethical and efficient pharma logistics supply chain valuing product integrity to save lives and improve global healthcare. The North Texas bio-life science sector is vibrant and growing rapidly. I’m encouraged by the way BioNTX, and other key stakeholders in the region are leaning in to give a warm Texas welcome to PLMC 2024.
