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 impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
