Organizers set the new dates after a detailed review of attendee requirements, event feasibility and governmental input.
“We wanted to be as proactive as possible in our approach, reacting quickly and listening to local governments and our audiences—who are our absolute priority,” said Adam Andersen, Group Director of the Pharma Portfolio at Informa Markets. “By announcing the three new dates together, we aim to provide more certainty to our exhibitors and visitors and better information to make more concrete travel and business arrangements for this year’s events.”
According a statement, Informa executives made the decision on the new dates in conjunction with advice from global health bodies, governments and industry on the continually evolving best practice health considerations and ongoing travel restrictions. CPhI Pharma organizers are working closely with local authorities to ensure the highest levels of safety for its customers and attendees.
Currently, CPhI’s other events, CPhI Korea, CPhI Middle East & Africa, CPhI India and CPhI Worldwide, will be held on their planned dates. Also, no changes are anticipated for the CPhI China event, June 22-24, in Shanghai, China.
