Paris, 9 June 2021- Pharmapack Europe (#pharmapackeu), organized by Informa Markets, has been given the go-ahead to return to Paris by the French Government. Under the gradual re-opening strategy confirmed by president Emmanuel Macron[1], trade shows and exhibitions will return in France from 9 June onwards.

The announcement enables Europe’s premier pharma packaging and drug delivery event to return on-site for the first time since February 2020. The event will be held in a hybrid format – featuring a two-week online content program and a three day in-person event – empowering the industry with greater opportunities to drive forward innovation and partnerships.

Pharmapack Europe will be hosted at Hall 7.2, Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles from 13 to 14 October and to ensure its safe return, the organizers will implement the Informa AllSecure standards – a ten-point safety plan covering onsite policies and protocols.

Online event ahead of in-person event

Ahead of the in-person exhibition, an online content and networking program (27 September to 15 October), will provide the pharma packaging and drug delivery community with access to invaluable insights. All content will be free to attend and available on-demand after the event. Live sessions will take place 5-7 October, with three tracks covering digital health, connectivity and patient centricity; sustainable packaging solutions; and combination products, biologics and vaccine delivery.

“The return of Pharmapack Europe will help stimulate vital growth across pharma packaging and drug delivery. We are extremely excited to welcome back the Pharmapack community and to ensure its safe return, we have introduced a hybrid event, with a wide-ranging online content and networking platform held ahead of the physical exhibition for in-person interaction. This means that attendees can be pre-armed with the latest insights as well as reviewing content on demand, with the exhibition itself completely dedicated to networking and new business,” commented Sherma Ellis Daal, Brand Manager at Pharmapack Europe.

Pharmapack Europe will host a maximum of 5,000 attendees and 410 exhibiting companies from 75 different countries.



The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
