The Pharmapack Awards 2024, running since 1997 and now open for submission, introduce two new categories and 8 prizes divided into two separate steams for Exhibitor Innovation Awards and the Health Product Awards.


The Exhibitor Innovation Awards [1] celebrate ‘new concepts in packaging materials, including primary or secondary packaging, cool chain and logistics, start-ups, and drug delivery solutions’. These Awards will no longer include a specific sustainability category. Thus,  in all categories, the entries will have sustainability metrics embedded within them in recognition of sustainalility’s rising importance to product design and innovation. Therefore, all applicants must now demonstrate a tangible reduction in environmental impact and carbon footprint.

The five categories are:

  • Drug Delivery Innovation,
  • Packaging Innovation,
  • Packaging Partners, Technology & Equipment,
  • Supply Chain, Logistics & Distribution,
  • Start-up Innovation Award

The Health Product Awards are open to the entire global packaging and drug delivery industry. They include 3 categories for innovations in Eco-Design, Patient-Centricity and Animal Health. The entries will be evaluated by a jury of independent pharmacists, physicians ans experts in patient-centricity and sustainable packaging.

The winners will be recognized for excellence in commercialized packaging or drug delivery solutions from pharmaceutical, veterinary, biopharma or OEM companies.

Tara Dougal, Content Director Pharma at Informa, said:” One of our big goals in 2024 is to ensure the awards are at the heart of growth and innovation in drug delivery and packaging. So for the 2024 Exhibitor Awards, in consultation with our expert jury, we have implemented a significant change to support sustainable innovation. By ensuring that each category requires an implicit sustainability focus, we hope to encourage pharma companies and product developers to consider sustainability and environmental impact at each stage of the development process. We are also really excited about the new categories for 2024, Packaging Partners, Technology & Equipment, and Start-Up Innovation – two sectors which offer exciting growth and promise for our industry”.
