Japan’s premier bio-tech event, bioLIVE Japan presents the perfect opportunity to showcase new treatment methods arising from biotechnical processes to the region’s pharmaceutical decision-makers.

• Japan is one of the countries that dominates the global pharma packaging market and is the largest within the Asia-Pacific region. InnoPack Japan presents the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your innovations in drug delivery systems and health product packaging before Japanese and Asian pharmaceutical decision-makers.

Natural extracts play a huge role in both the health and food industries in Japan. They are used as ingredients in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals, as well as traditional Chinese medicine (known as ‘kampo’ in Japan). CPhI Japan’s brand new natural extracts zone is the number one opportunity for suppliers of natural extracts to meet pharmaceutical and traditional Chinese medicine manufacturers in Japan.

Exhibitor Warning

How can I check if an email I receive if from an official supplier?

EMERGENCY WARNING: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SIGN ANY FORMS FROM:

  • Expo Guide
  • ExpoFairs
  • FairGuide.com
  • Construct Data Verlag
  • Tradeconference.info
  • Fair Express Ltd
  • GETA
  • Fairs & Business
  • International Fairs Directory

These target companies through legitimate exhibition guides. Their current activities cover companies throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Expo Guide claims to offer online listing services. They use a form which resembles an organiser's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost you a significant amount of money, with no foreseeable benefits. Included in their group is debt collection agency Gravis Inkasso Gmbh and Swiss debt collection agency Premiumn Recovery AG (a Construct Data subsidiary) which works in partnership with the various guides to intimidate exhibitors into paying. See an example of a false listing form here.

These publications have no connection with us or any of our events. We strongly adviseour exhibitors, and the entire exhibition community, to be most vigilant against this and similarorganisations.There are many so-called guides that mail deceptive contracts and then harassthose who sign them in error for money. However the sheer scale and systematic way in which these guides attack exhibitors is outrageous. Additional information on the Expo Guide, ExpoFairs, FairGuide and other Construct DataVerlag publications is available at: www.stopecg.org.
