New York, NY: CPhI, the leading international pharmaceutical business and networking event, is pleased to announce the latest addition to its global events portfolio, CPhI North America. Positioned to connect buyers and suppliers from the complete pharmaceutical supply chain, the event will bring together top industry influencers and key pharma innovators under one roof to offer North America’s most thought provoking program yet. CPhl North America will take place May 16-18, 2017 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA alongside InformEx, the home of chemistry innovation.

The launch of this event comes at an ideal time as the industry continues to experience massive growth. The North American generic pharmaceuticals market stands as the largest globally, valued at $71.8 billion, with expected growth of 3-6 percent annually between 2016 and 2020. On a larger scale, the global market for pharmaceutical contract research and manufacturing services (PCRAMS) is set to grow by an average of 13.6 percent each year through 2017, by which time it will be worth a staggering $136 billion.

“CPhI North America will provide an unrivalled opportunity to become a key stakeholder in a leading pharma landscape,” said CPhI North America Portfolio Director, Robyn Duda. “With the projected growth of the pharma industry in this region, there isn’t a better time to bring such an established pharmaceutical event to North America in 2017.”

CPhI North America will bring the entire pharmaceutical value chain together at one time to serve as the platform for thought leadership, partnerships and innovation in the North American pharmaceutical industry. The event will offer exclusive networking and educational opportunities, including an onsite conference program hosted in partnership with CBI, the leading life science conference producer. The event will focus first and foremost on the buying and selling of pharmaceutical ingredients and API’s. In addition to ingredients, conference verticals will include contract services, packaging, machinery/technology, finished dosage formulation and biopharmaceuticals.

To serve the needs of the North American pharmaceutical supply chain the following brands, affiliated with CPhI Worldwide, will comprise the zoned show floor.

  • CPhI North America will focus on pharmaceutical ingredients with exhibiting companies covering ingredients, APIs, excipients and more.
  • ICSE will connect the pharmaceutical community with outsourcing solution providers.
