Organiser Informa Markets has confirmed the launch of a virtual CPhI China and announced its complete listing of pharma event dates for 2021. The programme was announced at the opening of the first CPhI Festival of Pharma (5-16 October 2020) – the largest ever virtual pharma event.
The new pharma schedule includes one further event in 2020: CPhI China, 16-18 December (a hybrid event, combining ‘live’ in-person with virtual). In 2021, Informa said all eight international CPhI editions [Worldwide, India, China, North America, Middle East & Africa, South East Asia, Korea and Japan] will return in full along with Pharmapack Europe.
The 2021 events will be enhanced by digital elements, providing greater networking and learning opportunities to the global pharma industry, with the complete pharma portfolio resuming late spring onwards.
“We are thrilled about coming together with the pharma community again at CPhI Festival of Pharma, and we wanted to give details of all our pharma events for the year ahead. In 2021 we are implementing a hybrid model of events delivery, with virtual and online offerings, as well as live editions to provide greater flexibility to pharma companies and executives” said Adam Andersen (pictured), group director of the Pharma Portfolio at Informa Markets.
Informa’s confirmed pharma event dates:
27-29 January: CPhI India
14-16 April: CPhI Japan
19-20 May: Pharmapack Europe
22-24 June: CPhI China
4-6 August: CPhI SEA
10-12 August: CPhI North America
31 Aug-2 September: CPhI Worldwide
26-28 September: CPhI MEA
11-13 October: CPhI Korea

All the future pharma events will feature the Informa AllSecure enhanced health and safety standards – providing a robust at-event set of biosafety measures, spanning dozens of safety protocols.
Andersen added, “Over the last 31 years, CPhI has created a unique platform to unite specialist communities dedicated to improving healthcare. We provide a place where professionals can meet, exchange knowledge and do business. But it’s the real-world impact of their work that inspires us to continually adapt our offering to meet their needs. So, while our events are tailored to regional requirements, their reach and significance to patients is truly global.”
