Delegates should apply for a Business Visa using a letter of invitation to attend from Aptar Pharma, on behalf of RDD Asia.

Letter of Invitation

Participants requiring a formal letter of invitation should request a letter when they register. The letter may be supplied before payment is received in order to facilitate attendance at the conference, while recognizing that such an invitation does not imply a commitment from the conference organizers to provide financial support.
