After many discussions with key partners and industry stakeholders, the annual CPhI Worldwide (in-person) event is now confirmed to return in 2021. Luckily some of the largest conferences of the year, such as CPhI, are going to virtual platforms. The community should be excited to know that much of the invaluable content and networking that defines conferences like CPhI will still be able to survive and even thrive in the digital realm.
CPhI: Festival of Pharma is a new virtual event for the global pharma community. From October 5th - 16th, the CPhI: Festival of Pharma will combine hundreds of pharma companies, speakers, and networking opportunities, all controlled by their digital ecosystem. The webinar sessions, podcasts, virtual roundtable discussions, and networking you've come to expect from the CPhI conferences will still be taking place using a new digital learning and networking platform.
For such large scale virtual events as CPhI: Festival of Pharma, it can quickly become overwhelming for a team of company attendees, particularly if limited in size. With so much potential activities to cover, making the most of your time and investment is key, so we’ve put a few tips together for planning out your online experience:
Know the area and activities
CPhI: Festival of Pharma looks like it’s a good solution for filling the gap in the conference lineup this year. This virtual gathering will be launched to bring the global pharma industry together online and connect with companies and clients from around the world. The 10-day event is expected to attract many thousands of attendees and also hundreds of exhibitors.
Even though the event will be in a virtual setting, there will be many keynote sessions, webinars, vlogs, and podcasts. One of the best ways to prepare for CPhI will be to thoroughly review the conference agenda, packed full of information about the event. All of the 60+ online webinar sessions will be broadcasted live, but they will also be recorded if you or your team would like to view any sessions at a later time.
Identify the right companies to meet
One of the key benefits of attending a virtual conference is the instant access to products, attendees, exhibitors, and potential partners that would otherwise take much longer to acquire during in-person events. CPhI has an AI-driven matchmaking platform that compiles user information to match you with the best exhibition companies and interested attendees for your business. Be sure to check out the interesting features of CPhI’s networking platform.
Another great way to find your target companies, pharmaceutical products, solutions, and services is to check out the latest innovations first from the Virtual Pharma Marketplace, packed with information on hundreds of exhibitors. You will be able to log in, search, and easily filter all of the exhibitors to get a quick list of companies that you might be interested in meeting.
Speakers & Session Topics
One of the best ways to find out who is attending CPhI: Festival of Pharma will be to review the conference speaker list. Learn from some of the experts on the latest insights in the industry, including topics such as:
- The Future of Drug Manufacturing
- Natural Extracts: Unlocking the Potential of Cannabinoid Derived Drugs
- The CDMO Response to COVID-19
- M&A in the Cell & Gene Sector
All of the speaker sessions will be available live and on-demand until the end of the year. As we face more and more challenges in 2020, it's more important than ever before that the industry comes together to share its knowledge, latest developments, discoveries, and cutting-edge insights. The CPhI: Festival of Pharma will have specialist speakers from all over the pharma industry to bridge the gap in our recent communication and networking within the industry. Besides all of the speakers, there will be tons of other attendees to meet and potentially do business with in the future. In a time where networking is a challenge, it’s great to know that we can have so many resources and opportunities at our fingertips.
