2015 ChemOutsourcing Event Attracts Worldwide CMC Management to Meet Suppliers of Chemistry Services

TEANECK, NJ--(Marketwired - September 10, 2015) - The 2015 ChemOutsourcing event, set to take place Sept 14-17 in Long Branch, NJ, has attracted a worldwide gathering of CMC executive management from hundreds of pharmaceutical companies. Chemistry sourcing personnel from North America, Western Europe, and Asia will convene next week for 4 days of meetings and nightly networking parties on the beach.

2015 is the largest ChemOutsourcing Show since its inception in 2007. The attendee list may be viewed at

Mark Alexay, its Founder and President, commented today that "innovation continues to drive the show forward. This year, for example, 25 pharmaceutical companies will host informal meetings in the exhibit halls with any supplier who visits their table. This new feature has made it much easier to meet new companies since suppliers know beforehand what each pharmaceutical customer wants to buy."

Companies such as Merck, Pfizer, AbbVie, Eli Lilly, Genentech, and Novartis will participate, as will mid-sized companies like Boehringer-Ingelheim, Celgene and Gilead Sciences. Smaller companies, like Tolero and Blueprint Medicines, are also slated to meet suppliers. All the participants outline their current sourcing needs are at

Alexay went on to elaborate, "the first hurdle was getting the right group of customers and suppliers to the show, but it's still tough for them to meet each other in a meaningful way. Attendees gravitate to the people they already know. It's human nature -- we all do the same thing in our own personal lives! This special event minimizes the awkwardness of the first contact. Once the ice is broken it's so much easier to start building new business relationships."

ChemOutsourcing 2015 is the 9th annual show and the largest API show in North America. It takes place every September at the Jersey Shore. All event information is at

Alexay concluded, "the pharmaceutical companies discussed with me the challenge they face of expanding their portfolio of existing suppliers. It takes so much research, site visits, time, and plain risk, to start working with a new company. But meeting a large number potential partners in three minute blocks of time makes it easier. You can compare quickly and use your intuition to find the gem among many suitors. The pharmaceutical companies have all revealed their general needs before the show so from many short introductions, meeting a new partner just got easier."
