LONDON, December 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The pharmaceutical industry is experiencing a massive paradigm shift as the
era of the highly profitable blockbusters comes to a close. In an attempt to
remain competitive, companies are under more pressure than ever to push novel
compounds through the development pipeline and so it has been largely left to
those in formulation and delivery to optimise their product portfolio using
winning business strategies and leading technologies.

Entering its 4 ^th consecutive year, the World Drug Delivery & Formulation
Summit informs attendees of leading industry updates, strategies and
technologies through technical workshops, case studies and presentations. It
equips delegates with the tools and the know-how they need to launch new
products, reformulate existing drugs and to remain both patient and regulatory

The three day summit is structured into three distinct streams that focus on
leading issues and challenges in the small molecule, biological and technology
space respectively. These include innovative formulation technologies, routes
of delivery, advances in drug delivery devices and best practices in
supporting the sourcing and management of partnering relationships.

We are thrilled that Dow Chemical will be attending both as our Lead Category
Sponsor for Solubilisation and as Chairman for our leading technology day. We
look forward to hearing from them during their interactive session on Monday
18 ^th February 2013. Exclusive sessions include:
