Over recent weeks and months, we have been in constant discussions with key industry stakeholders and partners to stay abreast of the challenges and complexities facing the different segments of the Pharma industry in the face of disruption due to COVID-19.

This has included working closely with all partners directly involved with CPhI Worldwide 2020 to determine if the show scheduled for October in Milan would have been both practical and beneficial to the market.

From a health and safety standpoint, we felt confident we could deliver a safe and secure show, incorporating the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness.  

However, CPhI Worldwide is a truly global event, bringing together key industry players from all over the world. With other countries and locations at different stages of recovery from COVID-19 and with international travel only returning gradually, it is clear that it will be difficult to ensure the same level of participation and high-quality, in-person experience at Milan this year that everyone has come to expect at CPhI Worldwide.

Therefore, we have agreed with our key stakeholders and partners to focus on other ways to support the industry in 2020, with a commitment that CPhI Worldwide will return stronger than ever in 2021.
