CPhI Worldwide, organized by UBM (part of Informa PLC), has announced the finalists of the eagerly anticipated 2018 CPhI Pharma Awards.
This year’s edition features a record breaking number of entries, with over 250 from 174 participating companies across 17 categories, commending the innovations, technologies, and strategies driving pharma forward.
Out of the total entries, 139 have been shortlisted with the winners due to be announced during a live awards ceremony taking place at the Eurostars Madrid Tower Hotel on 9 October – the opening day of CPhI Worldwide.
Innovations across flow chemistry, single-use technologies, drug delivery devices, contract services and packaging were amongst many shortlisted, with the judges concluding this was by far the highest ever standard of entries – further cementing 2018 as the year of innovation in pharma.
The ‘packaging’ and ‘contract services’ categories continue to remain the most competitive and ‘pharma company of the year’ and ‘CEO of the year’ will be keenly sought as over 45,000 senior executives and 2500 companies attend at this year’s CPhI Worldwide.

Tara Dougal, head of content at UBM said, “Pharma has had an extremely strong 12-months across all parts of the industry and this has been backed-up at the Pharma Awards where the breadth and quality is larger than in any previous edition. With so much innovation in the industry, the judges this year have really had their work cut out selecting the finalists let alone winners.”
The awards will be presented at the CPhI Awards Gala with over 350 guests in attendance.
