Dublin-based Congress to attract 3,000 international delegates and boost the local economy

The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) and the PSI (Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland), the pharmacy regulator, have won a major international pharmaceutical congress for Ireland in 2013.
Speaking about the event win, which is set to bring 3,000 delegates to Dublin and could be worth as much as €10 million in revenue to Ireland, Dr. Ambrose McLoughlin, Registrar and CEO of the PSI said, “The PSI, with the support of the pharmacy profession and sector, is delighted to bring this prestigious event to Ireland.  It presents a huge opportunity for Ireland and will be a boost to the national economy in 2013.”  
“The PSI appreciates the support it has gained from the pharmacy representative bodies, the schools of pharmacy, the pharmaceutical industry and the Government, in particular the Minister for Health and Children, Ms. Harney and her Department, in securing this important event. We are looking forward to working with FIP, our stakeholders here and The Convention Centre Dublin on making this world congress in 2013 a success.”
“We are honoured to host such a prestigious event at The CCD,” said Catherine Newhall Caiger, Sales Director, The Convention Centre Dublin. “With 8 out of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies in the world based here, this international event will help to solidify Ireland’s strong commitment to this industry.”

The annual FIP Congress attracts pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists and academics from around the globe to a week-long event to discuss a wide range of global healthcare and pharmacy topics, current trends in pharmacy practice and pharmaceutical sciences and issues facing the profession.

The FIP annual Congress was held previously in Ireland in 1975.
