Top 5 Reasons to Attend FlyPharma Europe 2023

FlyPharma Europe 2023 aims to bring together pharma and logistics professionals to discuss the latest developments in the industry. With keynote speeches from renowned experts, lively discussions and networking opportunities, this conference promises to be an informative and engaging experience. Participants can also take advantage of Vienna’s cultural attractions while staying in the city. We can’t wait to see you there!

If you need any further persuading, here are just a few reasons why you should be joining us in Vienna on 10-11 October…

  1. Ideal location

FlyPharma Europe chose Vienna for its latest conference due to the growing presence of Austrian biotechnology and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Over the past 30 years, Vienna has been at the heart of exciting scientific developments and life science research. Organizations such as Vienna BioCenter are making their mark as one of the top biology research centers in Europe with major breakthroughs in epigenetic and DNA research in recent years.

Additionally, Vienna Airport has an outstanding pharma handling facility in its cargo handling center with cargo route connections to a global customer base. Vienna Airport is a gateway between East and Southeastern Europe, making it an ideal base for product transportation. Furthermore, Vienna Airport is one of the very few airports in Southeast Europe that offers direct end-to-end pharma handling services of this quality. This allows for greater quality control, providing solutions to a number of supply chain challenges.

The Vienna AirportCity is an example of how airports are adapting to form community and business hubs where industry professionals connect, providing a first-class office, conference and cargo space that helps businesses thrive. It is located within walking distance to the passenger terminals: something very few airports can offer.

  1. Networking opportunities

Meet prospective new business partners and reconnect with old contacts! FlyPharma Europe provides a great opportunity to network with senior and executive pharma and cargo experts, both in the audience and at the speaker podium, thanks to its exhibition area and numerous networking events. You are sure to return home with a variety of connections and opportunities for further communication.

Break the ice before the conference with our Pre-Conference Welcome Reception, held on 9 October, and come along to our Evening Networking Event on 10 October in central Vienna – more details to follow soon!

You also won’t want to miss Vienna Cargo Day, co-located with FlyPharma Europe and taking place one day prior on 9 October. The event focuses on bringing Vienna Airport’s cargo community together, with attendees from all over Austria, neighbouring Eastern European countries and further afield. Registration is free for delegates. More information can be obtained at
