Prague, Czech Republic
-245Days -14Hours -50Minutes -56Seconds


The global respiratory drug market is expected to continue to grow in the coming years due to several factors. While Covid-19 may not be the top concern anymore, rising air pollution levels, prevalence of respiratory diseases such as asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis, and an ageing population contribute to the increasing pervasiveness of respiratory diseases.

We come here, together to discuss the latest developments and breakthroughs in the field of respiratory medicine, and to explore new strategies for improving the health and quality of life of patients with respiratory diseases.

The goal of this summit is to provide a platform for experts in the field of respiratory medicine to share their insights and knowledge, and to collaborate on new ideas for improving the diagnosis, treatment, and management of respiratory diseases. Over the course of the conference, we will hear from leading researchers, scientists and industry professionals, who will share their expertise and experiences in the inhalation field.

Do not forget to mark 5-6 October 2023 in your calendar!

You will have the chance to meet and network with leading researchers, pharmaceutical industry professionals, and regulatory experts, allowing you to expand your professional network and gain new insights into the latest developments and trends.
