World's pharmaceutical professionals heading to Milan in 2020

Fiera Milano will host CPhI Worldwide, welcoming more than 47,000 delegates from 150 countries.

CPhI Worldwide will return to the Fiera Milano convention centre in 2020, bringing more than 47,000 professionals and 2,600 exhibitors from more than 150 countries.

The three-day exhibition, from 13-15 October 2020, organised by UBM, will see the world’s pharma community descend on Milan and occupy over 250,000 sqm of conference space.

Milan, and the Lombardy Region, were chosen thanks to the weight of the regional pharma industry and the caliber of its exhibition centre. The pharmaceutical industry in Italy is worth more than £26.4 billion (€30 billion), with Lombardy the largest regional hub.

"It’s been a particularly successful couple of years for CPhI Worldwide, as the world’s largest pharma event we have seen a remarkable growth in numbers," said Orhan Caglayan, brand director at CPhI Worldwide.    

"At the 2020 edition we anticipate 2600+ exhibitors and around 47,000 attendees, so the challenge we have, is to find a venue large enough with excellent infrastructure. Fiera Milano was an ideal choice, combining a comprehensive venue and a strong pharma industry."

CPhI Worldwide, which in 2020 will be hosting its thirty-first edition, covers the entire pharmaceutical supply chain and is by far the most comprehensive hub for global pharmaceuticals.
