Day 2 of Interphex

Listed below are some of our picks of the highlights of Day 2, but would you agree? What industry trends are you most excited about? Which innovations and developments are you aiming to come across during your visit? And what do you think pharma-based services will continue to focus on as we progress through 2024?

From a personal point of view, we like the Javits Center as an exhibition venue because it’s so close to the heart of New York. After a day at the busy trade show, it’s fantastic to have the opportunity to look around Times Square and other landmarks (FYI – the Empire State Building is open until 10.45 pm).

Today's Must-See

11:30 – 11:45: Campfire Discussion: Key 2024 FDA Developments for Pharma and Device Manufacturers (conference: Learning Lab)

Three former FDA regulators and investigators will be on hand for an “Ask Me Anything” style discussion on what to expect from the FDA in 2024, from current trends to future forecasts.

13:30 – 14:30: Keynote: Science to Medicine: The Evolution of Biotherapeutics and Cell Therapy (conference: Stage 2)

Carl Allenspach and Henrik Andersen, Bristol Myers Squibb, discuss the evolution of biotherapeutics, from recombinant protein production to the commercialization of cell therapies. 

15:30 – 15:45: Quick Fires: Evolution of Cell Therapy Manufacturing, Technology, and Facility Planning (conference: Stage 2)

CRB Group’s JP Bornholdt focuses on the transformative journey of autologous cell therapy technologies, and how this has impacted facility planning.

Tomorrow's Planner

Tomorrow, the conference and trade exhibition will come to an early close at 12:15 and 14:00 respectively. Morning sessions will include presentations on formulations stability, packaging, drug delivery, as well as a panel discussion on identifying foreign particulate matter in assembled autoinjectors. 


As well as Hell’s Kitchen, a number of other popular landmarks are within walking distance of the Javits Center. It takes around 25 minutes to walk from the center to Times Square, where you’ll find plenty of theaters, shops, and street performances, while enjoying a bustling atmosphere that lasts until late into the evening. Or you could walk from the Javits Center to the Empire State Building in around 30 minutes (open until 11.30 pm; last entry at 10.45 pm; tickets can be purchased online or through the 2nd floor kiosks). The building has exhibits on the history of the site and, of course, there are the famous viewing platforms.
