CPhI Milan

08. - 10. October 2024 | International fair of the pharmaceutical industry

The CPhI is the leading trade fair for the pharmaceutical industry and represents a central marketplace for all the key players in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors. Since its inception in 1990 as an international chemistry and pharmacy exhibition, it has evolved into one of the largest specialized fairs of its kind globally and rapidly became the central meeting point for industry experts and decision-makers. Today, it is organized by Informa Markets, a globally renowned trade fair organizer. The CPhI takes place annually at varying locations in Europe, making it what can be described as a roving trade show..

This dynamic of changing locations continually offers exhibitors and visitors new opportunities to immerse themselves in diverse markets and experience a broad spectrum of cultural and economic influences. The fair covers an extensive range of topics, from research and development to production and all the way to packaging and supply chain management.

Through collaborations with parallel events such as ICSE, InnoPack, and P-MEC, the CPhI encompasses the entire spectrum of the pharmaceutical industry, thereby providing a unique platform for the exchange of ideas and information. Here, not only established companies come together, but also start-ups and innovators seeking new partnerships or wanting to strengthen their existing business relationships.

A distinctive feature of the CPhI is its ability to bring together all aspects of the pharmaceutical industry, from the discovery of new active ingredients to the delivery of medicines to patients, all under one roof. Each fair location offers its own unique charm and individual opportunities. In all instances, top-notch facilities and infrastructure are ensured, providing thousands of visitors with an optimal experience.

In conclusion, the CPhI is a pulsating hub for knowledge exchange, cooperation, and innovation within the pharmaceutical industry. A visit is worthwhile not just for conducting business, but also for drawing inspiration from the latest trends and developments and for strengthening the global network of the pharma community.
