SDV to Attend the BioPharma Asia Convention 2015

March 11th, 2015

SDV will be present at the BioPharma Asia Convention 2015 held at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre in Singapore, from March 23 to 25, 2015 (booth B27, hall 4).

The 2015 edition of the BioPharma Asia Convention event will be the 8th edition of the annual regional gathering of pharmaceutical & biotech executives, investors, academics and solution providers.

SDV will once again take part as a sponsor, a Bronze Sponsor this time, to demonstrate its relevance to the pharmaceutical industry today as a major freight forwarding company.

“With SDV’s successful presence last year at the BioPharma Asia 2014, it was obvious that we would participate again in 2015”, highlighted Emmanuel Petrequin, Regional Healthcare Manager at SDV Asia Pacific.

Also according to Petrequin, “BioPharma Asia is an invaluable resource. All stakeholders adopting Singapore as a regional healthcare hub in Asia would venture to the convention with the same appetite, and we plan on satisfying their hunger for new expertise and fully customizable supply-chain solutions.”

During this year’s event, Jaspar Lim, Senior Quality Manager/Pharmacist at SDV Singapore shall be the moderator at roundtable discussion to demonstrate SDV’s healthcare expertise with a focus on creating an unbroken cold chain in the field of transport and logistics in the healthcare industry.
