After the triumphant events of last year, CPhI Worldwide will return on the 9-11th October 2018, at IFEMA, Feria de Madrid, Spain. The exhibition returns to see distinguished pharma execs from all over the world come together for three days of collaboration, information dissemination and discussions that will shape the future of the industry.

Building on last year’s success, which saw a record 45,000 senior pharma professionals in attendance, CPhI Worldwide 2018 will host 2500+ exhibitors in 20 easy-to-find zones covering the entire supply chain – from ingredients, APIs, excipients, to contract services, packaging, machinery and more. 

Reflecting the ongoing work of CPhI to provide opportunities to learn about new trends, business insights and prospects, the eagerly anticipated CPhI Annual Report will launch its 6th edition following this year’s CPhI worldwide event. This highly-regarded report will include a collection of essays from industry experts on the hottest topics and most pressing issues. This report will then be dissected in order to establish trends seen across the industry and the impact that these trends will have on the industry this upcoming year. 

Beyond the exhibitions attendees will have access to the latest pharma news in the media gallery. A series of Pharma Insight Briefings will provide a go-to space for pharmaceutical professionals looking to explore emerging therapeutic areas and new business opportunities while there will also be a CPhI Women in Leadership Forum which will allow women to share their experiences, expertise and leadership techniques. For the first time, men will also be welcomed to join their female colleagues at this event to facilitate conversation around how men and women can work together to diversify pharma. In another first for the event and in light of the growing biologics sector - bioLIVE a new dedicated bioprocessing and biomanufacturing event will launch this year.

A greatly expanded CPhI Pharma Awards Gala Dinner will take place in a glitzy ceremony at the Eurostar Madrid Tower, with 500 influential pharma guests expected. A total of 17 commendations will be awarded this year to celebrate the innovation and skill shown in the pharma industry today with over 250 applications received.
