AMSTERDAM, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading events organiser UBM Live, a division of UBM Plc (LSE: UBM), today announced details of CPhI India and its co-located events, which will be hosted from 30th November to 2nd December, 2011 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, India. Focused on pharmaceutical ingredients, CPhI India will be joined by co-located events: P-MEC India for pharmaceutical equipment, machinery and technology; ICSE India for contract services, clinical trials; and CRO and the BioPh trail for the biopharma market. Catering to all sectors in the pharma industry, both domestic and international, UBM Live's cluster of India-focused events offer attendees a dedicated platform to network with key decision makers in the Indian pharmaceutical industry, connect with existing partners and make new contacts. In 2010 the events hosted over 26,400 visitors and over 800 exhibiting companies, figures that UBM Live expects to be exceed this year.
Continuing UBM Live's commitment to developing and evolving value-add initiatives for visitors and exhibitors around its Indian events, the CPhI India Conference Series will return in 2011. Introduced in 2010 to positive feedback, the series programme will cover a selection of key trends and topics pertinent to the Indian and South Asian pharmaceuticals markets, including: Global Clinical Trials; Global Biosimilars Regulations; Healthcare and OTC Drugs; Developing Difficult Generics; Export Potential; and Competitive API Strategies. The conference series will feature high level speakers from respected companies such as Sanofi-Aventis, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, and Dr. Reddy's Laboratories.
"Mirroring the increasing importance of the Indian pharmaceutical market, CPhI India and co-located events have been built around a unique programme based on consultation and feedback from visitors and exhibitors," commented Annemieke Timmers, Brand Director CPhI. "We have geared the show to deliver significant return on investment (ROI) for pharma professionals who are currently working with or looking to establish relationships with Indian pharmaceutical companies. Our events offer direct access to a high-growth market that is estimated to generate US $13.1 Billion revenue in FY 2011(1). Beyond the immediate projections for the market, the domestic pharmaceutical industry in India is expected to further grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 15% during FY 2012-FY 2014(2). Our visitors are guaranteed to benefit from strengthening current business relations and making new business connections in a market that is well equipped to scale-up to requests for products and services quickly through networks that take advantage of the latest technologies available."
