Amsterdam, 11 August 2020: CPhI South East Asia – organised by Informa Markets – has been rescheduled to May 18-20, 2021 to give the ASEAN pharma community more time to recover and to mitigate any global disruptions caused by COVID-19.

“The decision to reschedule the event to 2021 reflects changing attendee needs. By moving to spring next year, we will enable exhibitors and visitors to get the maximum amount of value from the show. A 2021 CPhI South East Asia will deliver reassurance to our community and alleviate many of the logistical challenges for overseas visitors. We consulted with our stakeholders and this change will empower greater numbers and a more inclusive event for the Southeast Asian pharma community,” commented Silvia Forroova, Brand Director at Informa Markets.

The event will return to the Impact, Muang Thong, Thani in Bangkok (Thailand) and further details will be available shortly. To help the region’s pharma industry continue to meet, connect and conduct new business, Informa is also creating a comprehensive CPhI South East Asia Online Business Matchmaking Platform. The new online platform will facilitate unlimited connections and break through the physical restrictions.

“We understand the vital role our events play in facilitating new business and networking. So we are now working on a dedicated online business matchmaking tool to empower our Southeast Asia pharma community. But, we will also use the additional time to develop a show that will be well worth the wait and you can be assured that we are continually striving to find new ways to engage and support you. Thank you to all our exhibitors and partners for their incredible support.” added Forroova.
