CPhI announces new pharma events calendar for 2020

17 Mar 2020

Organizers secure three new dates for events in Japan, South East Asia and North America in response to COVID-19.

Following a detailed review of attendee requirements and event feasibility, the CPhI Pharma portfolio has secured new dates for CPhI Japan, CPhI South East Asia and CPhI North America.

  • CPhI South East Asia will now take place 1–3 July 2020 at the Challenger 2, IMPACT centre in Bangkok, Thailand.
  • CPhI Japan is now being held 30 September until 2 October 2020 at the Intex Osaka Exhibition Center in Osaka, Japan.
  • CPhI has also taken the decision to reschedule CPhI North America, which has now been moved to 9–11 September 2020 [moving from 5–7 May] and hosted at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre in Philadelphia, USA.
  • The new calendar will ensure the pharma community continues to have events to source, learn and network. Content and conference programmes are planned for each edition and updated agendas will be available shortly. In addition, the organizers are also exploring bringing digital content options to their audiences.

    “By announcing the three new dates together, we aim to provide more certainty to our exhibitors and visitors, and better information to make more concrete travel and business arrangements for this year’s events,” commented Adam Andersen Group Director of the Pharma Portfolio at Informa Markets.

    The decision on the new dates has been taken in line with the latest advice from global health bodies, governments and industry on the continually evolving best practice health considerations and ongoing travel restrictions. The organizers are working closely with local authorities to ensure the highest levels of safety for its customers and attendees.

    At present, CPhI’s other global events remain unaffected. Thanks to the continually improving situation in the country, CPhI China will also take place as scheduled in June, with the exhibition anticipated to run in full as normal. The organizers have said they will continue to monitor the global situation extremely closely and remain vigilant in their implementation of preventative measures.
