Riyadh - Mubasher: This year’s edition of the leading regional pharmaceutical event CPhI Middle East & Africa will be held alongside the Global Health Exhibition (GHE) in Riyadh between 26 and 28 September 2021.
Under the patronage of the Saudi Minister of Health, Tawfiq Al Rabiah, the move to Saudi Arabia and taking place in conjunction with GHE will create a larger platform for the regional pharma community, Informa Markets, the event organisers, said in a statement on Monday.
“We believe this decision will offer all participants the highest value and maximise their return on investment, while also providing more networking opportunities and educational content to facilitate growth in the region,” said the brand manager of CPhI Middle East & Africa, Sherma Ellis.
“It also underscores the importance of the pharma market in the region by highlighting Saudi Arabia’s commitment to healthcare in the country, and its ambition to become a regional hub for multinational pharma companies,” she added.
According to pre-pandemic estimates, Saudi Arabia is expected to contribute $10.7 billion or 24% towards MENA’s $44 billion pharma market by 2023.
GHE, the premier healthcare trade platform in Saudi Arabia for medical manufacturers, dealers and distributors, hospitals, and general healthcare service providers, attracts over 15,000 attendees and creates the ideal platform to do business with the global healthcare industry.
CPhI MEA is the only pharma event in the region covering pharma manufacturing, bringing together nearly 4,000 key pharma suppliers and buyers, connecting local, regional, and international professionals from across the entire pharma supply chain, from ingredients to finished product distribution.
