SOCMA introduces Specialties Forums in 2018

The Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA) is pleased to announce it will convene decision makers and thought leaders in three regional Specialties Forums across the country. As part of our new ChemSectors program, this executive-level forum is customized for decision makers to discuss industry trends, network with their peers, and gather industry intelligence.

“SOCMA is uniquely positioned within the specialty and fine chemicals supply chain to provide our members with the latest industry intelligence,” said Paul Hirsh, Senior Vice President, Industry Development & Strategic Partnerships. “Our new ChemSectors program addresses issues companies face up and down the supply chain to better position them with their customers. And, we have developed a series of Specialties Forums to address those needs understanding that a key component of commercial development is networking, whether they be in the Pharmaceutical, Performance or Agricultural sectors.”

The first Specialties Forum will be held on 13th June in Philadelphia with a pharmaceutical focus.  The forum features Daniel Cohen, a Managing Director at RBC Capital Markets, where he is responsible for the firm’s relationships with pharmaceutical and medical device outsourcing companies including CMOs and API manufacturers. Mr. Cohen’s presentation will be on the State of the Pharmaceutical Out Sourcing Industry.

The event will also include a Ted Talks-style discussion with industry leaders focusing on issues facing the pharmaceutical industry. The 2018 calendar includes additional Specialties Forums in Cleveland, OH, and Houston, TX, this fall.
