Italy wins bid to host CPhI Worldwide 2021

CPhI Worldwide has announced that the 2021 edition of the event for the healthcare and pharmaceutical sector will be held in Milan (Fiera Milano) for the first time in over a decade, following the event's postponement in 2020.

Organisers of CPhI Worldwide 2021 will implement a hybrid event model, featuring an onsite exhibition and conference agenda, as well as online sessions and matchmaking.

Orhan Caglayan, brand director at CPhI Worldwide/Informa, said: “We are really excited to be hosting the 2021 event in Milan – Europe’s largest pharma manufacturing region – especially with Italy seeing the largest reputational and growth increases of any country in our recent executive survey. Pharma manufacturers here, and particularly ingredients producers, are widely expected to see sizeable growth rates in 2021, with companies now actively looking to make new contacts, and implement multi-partner sourcing strategies. That’s why meeting new contacts at the event next year will be so important, as it will be the first time the global community has come back together." 

CPhI Worldwide 2021 in Milan will feature all five co-located events; including P-MEC, FDF, ICSE, BioProduction and Innopack, with Informa’s AllSecure Standards implemented.

Caglayan added: "CPhI Worldwide is international pharma’s only true one-stop-hub for everything from equipment, generics and packaging through to biologics, ingredients and contract services... our role has never been more important as new supply chain partnerships are sought globally. We help accelerate pharma advancement by enabling attendees to meet with not just one or two, but hundreds of potential partners simultaneously. Nowhere else can you do this as well as at CPhI Worldwide and we cannot wait to welcome global pharma to Milan.”

CPhI Worldwide will take place from 31 August – 2 September 2021.
