By Gil Roth, Editor, Contract Pharma
(NORWALK, Conn., March 27, 2012) – INTERPHEX will hold its second Outsourcing One-on-One program at this year's annual INTERPHEX meeting, May 1-3 at the Javits Center in New York City.
The One-on-One program is designed to match exhibitors in the Pharma Sourcing and Services area of the INTERPHEX show floor with attendees for face-to-face meetings at the show. The One-on-One meeting center provides a private setting off the show floor, equipped with individual meeting rooms, a personal concierge and light refreshments.
Meetings are set up ahead of time through the coordination of INTERPHEX’s Meeting Coordinator, who matches attendees with as many as five exhibitors and exhibitors in the Pharma Sourcing and Services area with as many as three attendees they would like to meet with during INTERPHEX.
"INTERPHEX is pleased to announce the return of the Outsourcing One-on-One Meeting Center, with the support of Contract Pharma, after great success last year. The meeting center serves as a platform to initiate relationships between exhibitors and attendees, accommodating up to 120 meetings during this year’s event," said Pete Zezima, Group Sales Director – INTERPHEX.
Gil Roth, editor of Contract Pharma magazine, commented, "Besides showcasing new equipment and services, the biggest value of a show like INTERPHEX is the opportunity it provides for face-to-face conversations about business. The Outsourcing One-on-One program is a great way to facilitate those conversations."
How to Participate in the Program Attendees can request to participate in the One-on-One program by opting-in through INTERPHEX’s attendee registration process . A few days after registering they are contacted by INTERPHEX’s Meeting Coordinator and asked to select which exhibitors in INTERPHEX’s sourcing and services area they would like to meet with at the show.
