CPhI North America 2020 Cancellation Announcement

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and in consultation with key stakeholders across the pharma community, CPhI North America has made the difficult decision to cancel the live event in Philadelphia, originally rescheduled for September 9-11.

This conclusion was not one that was reached easily, but with the health and safety of our community in mind, we have made the proactive decision to act now, allowing our industry partners enough time to adjust their plans.

While our live event has been cancelled, learning never stops. We have a series of webinars on trending topics coming up soon, and
we’ll keep you posted on the details as we finalize them. In the meantime, you can continue to access the webinars hosted in May on ‘Pharma response to COVID-19’ on demand.

The dates for CPhI North America 2021 will be April 20 – 22nd. We look forward to welcoming all our attendees and exhibitors next April for a successful CPhI North America.
