CPhI Japan Tokyo

| International fair of the pharmaceutical industry

CPhI Japan is a prominent trade fair in the pharmaceutical industry within the Asia-Pacific region and in Japan. CPhI stands for "Convention on Pharmaceutical Ingredients," underscoring its significance as a pivotal gathering for professionals in the pharmaceutical sector, especially in the realms of pharmaceutical ingredients and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). This event is annually hosted at Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, a premier and strategically located exhibition center..

Organized by Informa Markets Japan Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Informa PLC, CPhI Japan has gained international recognition. As an integral part of CPhI Worldwide, which was initiated in 1990, it functions as a crucial platform for suppliers and customers from the chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries to showcase the latest trends and innovations.

The main themes of CPhI Japan encompass a diverse array of topics: from innovative extract solutions derived from botanical, herbal, and natural sources to finished dosage forms, along with a broad spectrum of pharmaceutical active ingredients (APIs). It also features state-of-the-art bioprocessing and manufacturing solutions, groundbreaking biotechnology, and R&D services. Moreover, advanced chemical solutions, pharmaceutical machinery, laboratory equipment, and analytical technologies are key exhibition features. These are augmented by packaging equipment, automation and robotics, and various processing devices.

CPhI Japan mirrors the Asia-Pacific region's expertise in high-quality and innovative pharmaceutical solutions. It highlights the region's capabilities in pharmaceutical manufacturing, presenting novel solutions, new active ingredients, and technologies, and plays a role in boosting exports from Japan and the wider region.

A distinctive aspect of the fair is the opportunities for personal networking and education. Exhibitors represent various sectors of the pharmaceutical industry, and the primary attendees are professionals from these sectors.

CPhI Japan is a part of a global series of fairs, with each event focusing on its respective local market.

In summary, Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo is a modern and accessible exhibition center, perfectly suited for international events. It provides an ideal venue for exchanging expertise and fostering business relationships in the rapidly evolving pharmaceutical industry of Japan and the broader Asia-Pacific region.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 3 days of the fair, from 20. April to 22. April 2022, about 420 exhibitors and 20000 visitors on the CPhI Japan in Tokyo.
