Next stop, Milan - Welcome to Italy's life sciences hub
Milan is home to an internationally competitive pharmaceutical, biotechnology and functional foods hub, with strong growth prospects and a commitment to innovation across its entire supply chain. Italy is also home to one of the most advanced and efficient healthcare systems in Europe - making it an exciting destination for the 2021 CPHI Worldwide event.
CPHI Worldwide is back
From 9-11 November 2021, CPHI Worldwide will take place in Milan, Italy, after a two-year, COVID-19 induced break.
This year, the event is going hybrid, with an online platform open four weeks prior to the in-person event for matchmaking, networking and meetings. There is also a online content programme of 50+ sessions being broadcast from 25 October onwards - giving attendees all the insights they need to prepare for both virtual and on-site meetings in Milan.
The world's largest pharmaceutical gathering was last held in Lombardy's capital in 2007, so this year marks a long-awaited return not only to the in-person experience of CPHI Worldwide, but also to the epicentre of the Italian pharmaceutical industry.
