China Pharma Events Keep Growing For UBM
Date:8/6/2009

MAARSSEN, The Netherlands, Aug. 6: /PRNewswire/ -- Numbers were impressive at June's CPhI China, with ICSE China and P-MEC China - which together form Asia's biggest annual networking opportunity for the pharma ingredients, services and production equipment communities.

Staged by UBM at Shanghai's New International Expo Centre on 23 - 25 June, the combined events hosted 1,651 exhibitors from 17 countries and welcomed nearly 23,700 visits.

Accordingly, numbers were notably ahead of the 1,400 exhibitors and 19,500 visits in 2008. At 82,100 sq. m. the exhibition area was 25% larger than last year. And in only its third year, the P-MEC China production equipment and technology event had nearly 400 exhibitors - a 45% increase on 2008.

The exhibitions were complemented by the third CPhI China International Forum, over 30 exhibitor seminars and a Global VIP Trade Delegation to match Western buyers with Chinese suppliers.

CPhI Event Director Annemieke Timmers commented: "As evidenced by the impressive year-on-year growth of the Shanghai events, China has continued to outpace some of the steep business challenges in the international pharma market".

And she continued: "Helped by the strong fundamentals in her domestic market, China has quickly become a key global player. Our Shanghai exhibitions increasingly provide international access to the many outsourcing and production efficiency partnering opportunities available in China to Western companies".

Commenting on P-MEC China's success, Event Director Haf Cennydd said: "The 45% year-on-year rise in exhibitor numbers over a good platform in 2008 signals that P-MEC is a clear success in only its third year in China".

In dramatic contrast to 2009, fewer than 200 exhibitors and 7,000 visitors attended the first CPhI China, held in 2001.

UBM's China events enjoy the valuable support of the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Medicines and Health Products (CCCMHPIE) - with which UBM recently formalized an agreement for continuing co-operation.

Co-organisers of the exhibitions are UBM International Media's sister company in China UBM Sinoexpo. The 2010 events will be staged three weeks earlier next year, on 2 - 4 June 2010.

Reflecting their industry standing, the CPhI event family - together with their conference and digital derivatives - are increasingly promoted under the "Where Pharma Meets" theme. Significantly, www.wherepharmameets.com is the new gateway website to access all the pharma portfolio events, products and services.
