GDP – Time & Temperature Controlled Biopharma Pharma Logistics Conference: Turkish Cargo Conference Sponsorship


CSS 2017 (Cool Supply System & Solutions 2017) with 400+ has been in motion as an annual event for the past five years serving as a platform for premier Bio/Pharma Logistics providers involved in providing Services and Solutions within the Time & Temperature Controlled Logistics segment.

95% of the quality commitment is focused on new content from key contributors such as Shipper Presenters, GDP Inspector Presentations, and educational interactive activities such as; Open Question Times and in-depth Master-Class Workshops among other key sessions.

The second focus is to create a highly rewarding networking opportunity by dedicating time to engage both premier and award winning GDP certified solution/service providers; in addition to 100+ bio/pharma companies, there are smaller to medium size companies with a reach culture of sharing. CSS 2017 is Europe’s No. 1 Conference for Time & Temperature Controlled Logistics for such access.

For 2017, we have prepared an audience of 400+, 27 Speakers and 20 Exhibitors, divided into two streams; A: Bio/Pharma Logistics and Stream B: Medical Device Logistics.
