CPhI JapanIn its endeavour to help pharma players from other parts of the world to explore Japanese drug market, the second largest in the world, United Business Media, a leading organiser of trade shows and professional shows in Europe, US and Asia, would host its flagship event CPhI Japan at Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Centre, Tokyo from April 21 to 23, 2009.

CPhI Japan, a three-day exhibition cum conference event, has over the past several years matured as a platform for networking with industry players from across the globe, striking new business deals and outsourcing products and services, bolstering Japanese partner/distributor marketing activities and introducing new products and services.

"As usual, CPhI Japan would offer a golden opportunity to industry players across the world to introduce their company to Japanese market, reinforce their company's position in this growing drug market, launching new products and make new contacts and expand their Japanese network," said the organisers of the event.

This year, the exhibitors at CPhI Japan are expected to make more business as the region has seen the introduction of pharmaceutical affairs law (PAL). "The CPhI Japan exhibition is very successful in attracting large number of potential Japanese business partners. Last edition featured more than 450 exhibiting companies and over 12,000 visitors. This year Japanese companies will be extremely eager to do business with foreign producers and manufactures in the field of pharmaceutical ingredients. With the new pharmaceutical affairs law in place, they can freely outsource their production process," apprised the organisers.

Though dedicated entirely to pharmaceutical ingredients and intermediate products, CPhI Japan through its co-located events like International Contract Services Expo (ICSE) Japan and Pharmaceutical Machinery and Equipment Convention (P-MEC) address the needs of industry players in segments like outsourcing and pharma machinery and equipments.

While ICSE Japan would offer a unique opportunity to present new products, outsourcing solutions or R&D development and outsourcing services in drug discovery, testing and analysing to the Japanese pharmaceutical audience, P-MEC is learnt to provide a platform for exhibiting machines and equipments related to manufacturing, development and packaging needs of pharmaceutical industry.

Besides the opportunities to explore business activities in this land of rising sun, this year, CPhI Japan would be noted for highly informative conference sessions that would provide industry players a deep insight into the latest trends and changing regulatory scenario in the Japanese pharma industry. Also, the conference sessions are learnt to throw light on the latest industry developments worldwide.

"CPhI Japan offers the best business meeting place for outsourcing companies to present their technique, service and products into vast Japanese pharmaceutical market," stressed the event organisers.
