Sunderland, which hosted the British Pharmaceutical Students’ Association in April, is hosting the event at the National Glass Centre, within Unispace.

Organised by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) with the purpose of urging regional businesses to take up the ‘export for growth’ challenge, the event will be one of a series of Olympic-themed events linked to the "British Business Embassy" events that took place during the London 2012 Olympics.

Some 140 delegates are expected to attend the one-day conference and exhibition, which includes presentations from regional government and the national UKTI body.
 
Commercial services manager of Unispace Sunderland Sharon Olver said: "This summit is an example of a contract win secured in part due to our expertise as a University in the pharmaceutical field. We are particularly pleased to be able to support the university’s core proposition with such a high profile event.

"We hope to continue to increase the number of pharmaceutical and science based events, while also continuing to develop the space available at Unispace, such as the recently opened plenary space within our Sciences Complex created to accommodate such events."
 
Professor Tony Alabaster, associate dean in the Faculty of Applied Sciences at Sunderland University, added: "The University is delighted to be hosting such an important Healthcare and Life Sciences Business Summit. The Department of Pharmacy, Health and Well-being within the Faculty plays a key role in engaging with the region's healthcare and life sciences economy and is actively engaged in helping to deliver the goals of the UKTI in creating 500 new exporters in the North East by 2015, by providing inspiring and accessible academic and infra-structure support."
