CPhI Frankfurt 2022: at the heart of pharma

CPhI Frankfurt (previously called CPhI Worldwide) — the world’s largest pharma event — returns to Germany in 2022

It remains the go-to event for global pharma, attracting industry wide participation and making this event the best place to source, network and collaborate.

The 2022 edition brings a raft of exciting changes – including a full schedule of onsite content and in-person sessions for the first time since 2019 – with event numbers expected to meet or exceed pre-pandemic levels as the pharma community turns out again en masse.

The 3 day exhibition and in-person conference will be hosted at Messe Frankfurt, Germany, 1-3 November 2022, and will run in hybrid form – fusing the best elements of the traditional show with interactive online features to help attendees maximise their CPhI experience.

Extending the value delivered, CPhI will open its networking and learning platform on 28 Sep 2022 with the "Connect to Frankfurt" digital platform that will begin the countdown to CPhI Frankfurt. Connect to Frankfurt will feature more than 40 on-demand session covering topics from all aspect of the pharma supply chain.

What’s new at CPhI Frankfurt

One significant change, which will be immediately clear, is that the event has been rebranded as CPhI Frankfurt and the onsite experience enhanced for attendees’ ease of navigation. For example, the collocated events have been replaced by descriptively named zones for packaging, outsourcing, machinery and more.
