TraceLink Announces NEXUS '15 and Ushers in New Era of Strategic Vision for Transforming Life Sciences With the Internet of Things

Global Experts From MIT, ChainLink Research, SCM World, Supply Chain Insights and Leading Global Pharma Companies to Discuss Collaborative Business Ecosystems and the Future of Track and Trace for Life Sciences

NORTH READING, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2015) - TraceLink Inc., the world's largest track and trace network for connecting the Life Sciences supply chain and eliminating counterfeit prescription drugs from the global marketplace, today announced TraceLink NEXUS '15 -- a landmark gathering of business leaders and pharmaceutical professionals dedicated to shaping the future of track and trace across Life Sciences. The two-day event, which will be held in Washington, DC on September 22 and 23, represents the first time that Internet and cloud computing visionaries, supply chain experts, and pharmaceutical leaders will gather to explore how collaborative network infrastructures that connect business, devices and people will stimulate decades of unparalleled efficiency, integrity and economic growth for Life Sciences.

"Global Life Sciences is in the midst of a massive transformation, and NEXUS '15 is the only industry forum where a cross-section of business leaders can come together, learn from their peers, and take away tangible track and trace strategies to drive meaningful change and lasting economic benefit in their own organizations," said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. "As Life Science companies pursue a variety of growth initiatives, they also face a complex web of new compliance regulations and collaborative business challenges that traditional IT infrastructures can no longer support. We've designed NEXUS '15 to provide a rich, interactive learning environment where attendees will gain critical knowledge from Internet trendsetters, pioneering technologists, and supply chain experts. If you're in Life Sciences, and you want to create a track and trace roadmap that positions your company for lasting growth and success, you don't want to miss NEXUS '15."
