SAPHEX 2018 and the Pharmacy Show will take place at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Gauteng, on 1 and 2 November.

Aimed at manufacturing

SAPHEX had a hugely successful launch in 2017 and is already established as the ‘go-to’ networking and business event for the South African pharma manufacturing industry. The expo provides a meeting place for industry players, a platform to learn about best-practices from peers at the sister conference, networking opportunities and a space to establish strategic relationships with key suppliers.

SAPHEX 2018 is set to be 50 percent bigger than last year’s show with the organisers expecting about 150 exhibitors to take part. These include companies that offer a range of products and services to pharma manufacturers including active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients, drug formulations, pharmaceutical packaging solutions, processing machinery and equipment, laboratory equipment, clean room technology and more.

Top quality exhibitors and visitors

P.A. Cuthbert, Starrate, SGD Pharma, Nemera, Meroven, Parekhplast, Fasken, Kirsch Pharma, Clarivate, Anhui Biochem, Capsugel and Hainan Zhonghe have already confirmed their participation in the exhibition. This shows the calibre of companies that pharma manufacturers will be able to meet at SAPHEX 2018.

The exhibition is on track to attract over 2 500 decision makers from leading pharma manufacturers located throughout Africa and within South Africa. Key policy makers, regulators and investors working in the pharma industry are also set to attend the expo.

Calling all retail pharmacies

The Pharmacy Show will run concurrently to SAPHEX at the same venue and on the same days but with a different focus. Organisers expect in excess of 1 000 visitors to attend the show.

This exhibition and conference is specifically for retail pharmacists in South Africa. Pharmacists who attend The Pharmacy Show are guaranteed to meet and establish key relationships with precisely the right suppliers to help their pharmacy businesses thrive.

The Pharmacy Show aims to be a one-stop shop for pharmacists looking to optimise their businesses. Unilever, The Local Choice, IMPO Distributors, Medipost, Medlloyd, DNA Logic, HealthForce and Middelveld are just some of the exhibitors confirmed for the 2018 show.

Networking remains the primary focus of The Pharmacy Show. For pharmacists, pharmacy managers, technicians or team members, it will provide the perfect platform to share ideas for innovation and take away practical solutions to implement in the pharmacy environment. The show will also feature a conference programme with speakers delivering the latest updates on opportunities and solutions available to retail pharmacists across South Africa.

Committed to boosting Africa’s pharma industry

The organiser, Africa Pharma Event Series, is certain SAPHEX 2018 and The Pharmacy Show will be the biggest gathering of pharmaceutical professionals ever seen in South Africa.

The momentum and success of the events have prompted the organiser to launch EAPHEX, a sister event to the brand in East Africa. Africa Pharma Event Series is also in the process of announcing an event for North and West Africa to be held in Morocco in 2019. This confirms the organiser’s dedication to supporting the rapidly growing and dynamic African pharmaceutical industry.
