CPhI Pharma Awards Celebrate the Best of the Industry in 9th Annual Ceremony

AMSTERDAM, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading events organiser UBM Live today announced the call for entries for the annual CPhI Pharma Awards. Open to exhibitors of CPhI Worldwide, ICSE, InnoPack, and P-MEC Europe, the Awards honour companies and organisations breaking new ground in formulation, drug delivery systems, medical devices, packaging, chemical and bio manufacturing. The Best Innovation in Pharma category will have a gold, silver and bronze winner. Additionally, there will be one winner each for the inaugural Best Sustainable Pharmaceutical Packaging Award and the Best Sustainable Stand Design Award. The exhibition runs from October 9th to 11th at the Feria de Madrid in Spain and winners of the CPhI Pharma Awards will be announced on October 9th during the Networking Reception.

"The CPhI Pharma Awards offer a unique and dedicated platform for companies to showcase groundbreaking innovations in front of a global audience. They exist to encourage and celebrate the spirit of continued innovation and advancement in the pharma industry and we are pleased that they have had such positive feedback over the last nine years," Greg Kerwin, Pharma Portfolio Director noted. "We are also excited about the sustainability awards categories, one returning and one new. The Best Sustainable Stand Design returns to celebrate an exhibitor that has reduced the environmental impact of their stand. And this year, we are pleased to introduce the Best Sustainable Pharmaceutical Packaging Awards which will honour an exhibitor with a sustainable advancement in Packaging Materials and Machinery. These additional categories complement UBM's commitment to sustainability as a show organiser, as well as the continued push for sustainability and green chemistry in the industry as a whole."

Last year in Frankfurt, Glycotope won the gold award for the GlycoExpress platform technology designed to optimise the glycosylation of antibodies and other glycosylated therapeutics. Acuros took silver for its novel disposable device for the continuous delivery of small volume parenteral drugs, which uses an osmotic actuation and needs no power supply. The bronze went to Johnson Matthey Catalysts for its Colour-Tag-Protein technology that is used as a direct marker for protein expression, speeding up the development of new bioprocesses.

Gold medal winners, Glycotope, expressed the impact that the award had for them when Franzpeter Bracht, Ph.D. CFO & CBO of Glycotope said that, "Winning the CPhI Pharma Awards in 2011 was a great boost for Glycotope to introduce our innovation, GlycoExpress, to the global pharma industry. It gave us wide coverage via the international trade press and generated new leads."

Entries for the CPhI Pharma Awards are encouraged from all exhibitors. From the entries, six finalists will be chosen for the Best Innovation category and judged by a returning panel that has been in place since 2007 and includes senior personnel from leading pharma organisations, CU Chemie Uetikon, Pliva, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories (UK) Ltd. and Merck KGaA. Chosen finalists will present their entry to the judging panel in an open format that event visitors are welcome to attend. Award winners will receive their award at a special ceremony attended by fellow exhibitors, press delegates and VIP's. The call for the CPhI Pharma Awards is open till 27th July 2012.
