CPhI North America is coming to Chicago! From April 30–May 2, 2019, we’ll set up shop on the shores of Lake Michigan at the McCormick Place and welcome an anticipated 6,500+ attendees and 670+ vendors.

Attracting pharma leaders and powerhouse companies from all over the U.S. and nearly 90 countries, our convenient Midwest location also means many won’t have to travel far to be at the epicenter of North American pharma innovation—Chicago and surrounding areas are home to sophisticated R&D labs, cutting-edge production facilities, and a vibrant bioscience hub.

Only the McCormick is fit to accommodate this year’s CPhI North America 2019! Bigger and better than ever, we’ll have nearly 670 suppliers positioned throughout the show floor in seven strategic zones allowing you to find the right products and services at the right time. The entire pharmaceutical industry and its lucrative supply chain, under one roof.
