Due to the rampant spread of Covid-19 in the country and the consequent travel restrictions imposed by the Government of India, show organizer Messe Muenchen India and the Indian Pharma Machinery Manufacturers Association has announced the postponement of the Hyderabad edition of the Pharma Pro&Pack Expo from 23 to 25 September 2021.

The trade fairs were initially scheduled from 17 to 19 September 2020 at Hitex Exhibition Center, Hyderabad. However, considering the safety of stakeholders, exhibitors, and visitors, the show organizers have rescheduled the trade fairs. The postponement decision is also based on industry feedback received through the extensive survey conducted by the organizer.

Bhupinder Singh, chief executive officer, Messe Muenchen India, explained, “Owing to the restrictions enforced by the Government of India on travel and mass-gatherings, September 2020 is no longer a viable option to organise Pharma Pro&Pack Expo.”

Singh added, “Health and safety of everyone involved in the trade fairs is our prime concern. For the upcoming edition we will strictly follow government directives and standard operating procedures to ensure a safe environment to conduct business at our trade fairs.”

Mahendra Mehta, president, Indian Pharma Machinery Manufacturers Association, also commented on the postponement, “Keeping the safety of stakeholders, exhibitors and visitors at priority, postponement of the 2020 edition is a radical decision. The industry will have a great experience under better circumstances and it will make the 2021 edition a greater success.”

Pharma Pro&Pack Expo will bring together professionals from various verticals to foster businesses globally in the upcoming edition, scheduled in September 2021 at Hitex, Hyderabad.
