The curated expo is supported in its endeavours by governing bodies like Pharmexcil, CIPI and IDMA.
Speaking on IPW 2019, Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets, India, said, “We are excited to be back to Delhi NCR for the 13th edition of CPhI & P-MEC India expo this year. The expo continues to receive an overwhelming response at the IEML, Greater Noida this year too. As the industry looks increasingly towards India for high quality, low-cost pharma solutions, the expo serves as the ideal platform to pick up the latest trends and innovations that the market has to offer.
Further, the choice of location bring us closer to the Centre, policy makers, consulates and government bodies and this will enhance our community-building efforts. Apart from the business, and diverse events, key discussion areas will include ‘Growth of Indian Pharmaceutical industry, identifying the strength of collaboration for research and development of new products and embrace disruption to avoid being disrupted, among many others, for the community to ruminate and act upon.” He further added, “With CPhI and P-MEC India, we are proud of the way we have engaged the powerhouses of the industry to elevate their business and transform the pharma space with innovations.”
With over 1,600 exhibitors from 44 countries, the expo will have special pavilions by The Global Organization for EPA and DHA (GOED), China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Medicines and Health Products (CCCMHPIE), China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) and the Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council of India (Pharmexcil). The participants from the countries apart from India include China, the USA, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Thailand, Taiwan, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, UAE, Netherlands, Poland, Hong Kong, Japan and Russia.
The CPhI & P-MEC India was first introduced in 2006, and is currently South Asia’s leading pharma convention. It covers every step of the supply chain, from drug discovery to finished dosage. The expo has rapidly grown over the years to become a trusted barometer of the burgeoning India pharma story, with domestic and foreign exhibitors, and visitors engaging over significant levels of business.
The India Pharma Week, the umbrella event which is in its fourth year, stems from the pro-active role it plays in driving key governmental initiatives such as ‘Make in India’, ‘Start-Up India, Stand Up India’, and ‘Skill India’ connecting the global community to eke out solutions to challenges and establishing superior standards within it. Starting from 25th November with the Pre-Connect Congress, a pre-cursor event driven by powerful content and unmatched speakers, the scene of action will shift to Greater Noida, where turnkey engagements including the CEO Roundtable and the Women Leaders in Pharma are scheduled for 26th November and 27th November, respectively.
With the events of IPW hosted at the India Expo Centre, industry stakeholders and professionals will be offered the convenience to congregate at the marquee show, network and celebrate the industry under one platform. The shift to the Delhi-NCR region has helped it further develop and nurture a complete pharma ecosystem in the sectoral pockets of the North, including the power corridors of the Centre.
This year, the expo comprises exciting facets such as ICSE meeting areas, a live pharma connect, an innopack theatre and an exhibitor showcase, among others, to make the IPW a true engagement platform to Indian and global pharma companies for knowledge sharing, co-operation, collaboration, celebration and mapping the addressable issues in the industry.
Further, interesting debates and sessions will be hosted as a part of The Women Leaders in Pharma which will bring the experiences to light through its Talk Show ‘Following your purpose Talking.’ The discussions will cover various subjects including obstacles and hurdles faced such as underestimation, stereotyping, sexism, and marginalisation, stories of women who stepped up to leadership, the underlying issues they faced, along with their practical advice for all women leaders and those who aspire to lead. Along with this, other interesting sessions will include purposeful inclusion – accelerating through diversity and breaking the stereotype.
