Secure Your Place in the Hub of Pharmaceutical Innovation in May 2017

Chimica Oggi-Chemistry Today

CPhI North America, the next iteration of the iconic CPhI brand, will be the epicenter of pharmaceutical innovation, emerging trends, insights, and community-building connections in North America. Those seeking powerful partnerships will come together to illuminate the path towards high growth in this ever-evolving industry. The inaugural event will take place on May 16–18, 2017, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA, USA adjacent to the 33nd edition of InformEx, the home of fine and specialty chemicals.


Pharmaceutical executives along with R&D, compliance, regulatory, manufacturing, QA/QC, supply chain, packaging, and procurement professionals will gather to build connections, to capitalize on emerging trends, further innovation, and tackle industry challenges.

The launch of CPhI North America has been strategically timed to take advantage of strong industry growth and innovation while addressing the ever-increasing challenges to the future prosperity of the industry.
North American pharmaceutical revenue growth is strong, the United States saw an 8.5% growth in 2015. As leaders in pharmaceutical innovation, North American organizations develop a staggering 36% of the world’s new molecular entities (NME). With incredible advancements in the understanding of how to treat a wide range of disease states, the pharmaceutical industry now has greater opportunities than ever before.

However, the industry is facing staggering price control pressures, research and development (R&D) inefficiencies, a need to efficiently manufacture new types of drugs, and mounting regulatory complexity. Industry changes, challenges, and opportunities call for a new event that can help the industry move forward in new ways.

“CPhI North America will provide an unrivalled opportunity to become a key stakeholder in the largest pharmaceutical market,” said Robyn Duda, CPhI North America Portfolio Director. “With the projected growth of the pharma industry in this region and the real challenges the industry is facing, there isn’t a better time to bring such an established brand to North American pharma market in 2017.”


As if the power of CPhI was not enough, CPhI North America will be held adjacent to InformEx, the world’s leading show for the high-value specialty chemicals marketplace. CPhI North America attendees will benefit from the tremendous specialty chemical expertise InformEx assembles, which is essential to the success of pharmaceutical product development.
