Record numbers expected at CPHI & PMEC China 2024

CPHI & PMEC China (19-21 June) returns to the Shanghai New International Expo Centre amid soaring demand across the pharmaceutical supply chain in Asia. Exhibitors will span 12 different zones with organisers saying the entire supply chain will be in attendance from ingredients, machinery, clean rooms and finished dosages to contract services, packaging, laboratories, and biologics. The event will also include China Pharma Week, featuring seven networking streams and a comprehensive agenda to offer extra opportunities for meaningful connections and new learnings. In total, 3,500 exhibitors will partner with 60,000 attendees from 150 countries across a massive 210,000+ SQM of exhibition space.

The event will host over 100 conference sessions to help attendees understand this increasingly complex supply network. Beyond the comprehensive Chinese language programme, CPHI & PMEC China 2024 will also feature a series of insightful English-language seminars and conferences.

China, already the primary source of pharmaceutical ingredients and starting materials globally, has also seen domestic demand improve rapidly post-pandemic. Consequently, exhibitors report robust growth across most Asian countries, with expected attendance significantly up year-on-year.

This latest positive boon for the region follows rapid rises in domestic pharma share prices, record drug approvals, 60 in 2023, and unprecedented numbers of out-licensing deals in China – all reported in the last few months.

Jenny Leung, regional manager of organiser Informa markets said: “Last year, we had record-breaking attendance, and we anticipate an even more international platform this year with numbers up once again. China remains unrivalled as ‘the’ source of ingredients and starting materials, while its domestic market is also booming. Regional drug makers are expanding exports and increasingly serving China’s consistently growing domestic healthcare demand.”

The CPHI & PMEC China Awards will span seven categories and celebrate regional innovation with a distinguished ceremony and networking dinner on 19 June.
