SOCMA Brings Together Thought Leaders At 2018 Specialties Forums

May 14, 2018
The Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates will convene decision makers and thought leaders in three regional Specialties Forums across the country.

The Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA) will convene decision makers and thought leaders in three regional Specialties Forums across the country. As part of its new ChemSectors program, these executive-level forums are 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," says Paul Hirsh, senior vice president, industry development and 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 June 13 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. 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.
