AMSTERDAM, March 20, 2012 /CNW/ - CPhI Worldwide, ICSE, P-MEC Europe and InnoPack had a record breaking year with 2,200 exhibitors and 29,920* attendees at the Messe Frankfurt in October 2011. Post show surveys attest to the event's success, with 92% of exhibitors and 94% of visitors agreeing that the event is the key meeting place for the pharmaceutical industry. Organisers UBM today announced that the event will return to Frankfurt, Germany from 22nd to 24th October 2013.
"We experienced a phenomenal response to the 2011 events and this has influenced our decision to return to Messe Frankfurt in 2013," commented UBM Live Pharma Portfolio Director Greg Kerwin. "Frankfurt has traditionally been one of the most popular venues in the events' 22 year history, not only as a result of it being located in one of Europe's largest pharmaceutical hubs, but due to its international accessibility, quality and availability of accommodation, and the high standards of service offered by the venue."
In 2012 the events will run this year from 9th to 11th October at the Feria de Madrid in Madrid, Spain. CPhI Worldwide for pharmaceutical ingredients, ICSE for contract and outsourced services and logistics, P-MEC Europe for pharmaceutical technology and machinery and InnoPack for pharmaceutical packaging are the world's largest networking platform for the varied sectors of the pharmaceutical market.
