“CPhI has undergone a number of really successful years both in terms of growth and its increasing importance to the pharma industry,” Adam Andersen, group brand director, Pharma, Informa Market said.

“What gives the team most pride, is that the new developments we have introduced from co-located events and verticals to new geographic venues are proactively helping the industry grow, and enabling new partnerships and increased learnings.”

The success was also attributed to introducing the latest technological advances as well as tailoring events to audiences in each geographical region. Andersen added: “We take a ‘global’ approach to event creation and look to work with the most prominent regional partners, exhibitors and organisation so that we produce an event that meets their unique business needs.”
