CPhI China

Asia's premier pharmaceutical event

Established in 2001, CPhI China has quickly gone from another satellite event in the CPhI lineup of trade shows to one of the most influential pharmaceutical events on the continent of Asia. It’s certainly the biggest and a natural meeting point for buyers and exhibitors from Asian markets and foreign nationals. CPhI China acts as a natural bridge between the East and West and is a source for innovation and mutual cooperation. Trade visitors have access to all related, essential product categories. These would be APIs, biopharmaceuticals, EP & clean tech, pharma excipients, pharma machinery, pharma logistics, finished dosage, laboratory equipment, CMO & CRO, animal health and feed, automation, natural extracts and packaging materials. Exhibitors attend in order to reveal new products and seek buyers. There’s also a support programme, which features world-class experts, speakers, and scientists in a variety of forums and seminars.

  • “We participated in P-MEC China in 2018 as a visitor and made our first appearance as an exhibitor in 2019 as we saw the growing scale of the exhibition and the influence of China’s pharmaceutical equipment. With buyers from all over the world visiting the show, you can imagine how P-MEC has served as a hub in China, Asia and even the global market. The show is well organized and easy to navigate,” – Fette Compacting;
