Developing experience

from business –

come and help shaping it!

Düsseldorf 25 – 28 September 2019


One event – ten innovative formats

The most important location of the year

expopharm is the industry’s main gathering of the year. It brings players such as decision-makers and opinion leaders together in one place, whether they come from the marketplace, politics, science or the press. This is where the course is set. This is where investment decisions are made and partnerships are sealed.

The right format for every exhibitor

expopharm offers every exhibitor the right format for their needs: whether individual, turnkey or as integrated components of pharma-world and PTA-Forum Live, optimal contact with the specific target groups is assured. New in 2019: Newcomer Days especially for startups.

More contribution. More possibilities

Become a co-creator of expopharm 2019 and set your own trends! New formats offer new possibilities – whether short and compact with the expopharm forum or face-to-face with intensive workshops. Take advantage of the new touchpoints and strengthen best practice exchange with your target groups.

New target groups. New focus. New formats

The focus is shifting to the target group of young and budding pharmacists and this extends to every format: They will find inspiration in the expopharm Forum, develop their expertise by taking part in intensive workshops and discover exhibitor stations during the guided tours. And, of course, after the fair they can meet at the Young Pharmacists Night!

4 innovative ideas for presenting your portfolio

Your exhibition stand

Maximum flexibility in terms of presentation

Whether you choose an individual stand or one of expopharm’s complete stands: having your own address at Europe’s most important pharmaceutical trade fair will give your company maximum flexibility in terms of presentation. Invite your target groups to your stand on the most important investment decision-making platform. Let them test and experience your products, for example. Take advantage of the potential of decision-makers on-site – also beyond the pharmacy market.  Your presence on the central marketplace is the perfect way to network or exchange views with key industry partners and opinion leaders. Expopharm not only allows you to initiate new contacts but also to strengthen existing ones: use your innovations to shape the trends in the pharmacy market!


Become the focus of interest

As part of pharma-world you can achieve great results with little effort. This format combines product presentations with practice-orientated advanced training in pharmaceutical science by high-profile speakers. This attracts more than 3,500 pharmacists and PTAs interested in pharmacology. While the seminars provide information on the latest findings for the respective indications, industry representatives present their tailored solutions in the immediate vicinity. Manufacturers of top brands are therefore able to reach their core target groups quickly and directly. The product presentations ensure high visibility and allow low-threshold dialogue directly with the customer. In this way, indication and consulting expertise can be optimally conveyed. The format is rounded off with moderated interviews with the programme advisory board in the lecture breaks and the opportunity to invite customers to the evening get-together at pharma-world. This also includes pre-reporting and post-reporting in the media.  Download brochure


PTA Forum Live powered by EXTRAVERT

Infotainment – knowledge transfer that’s fun

As part of the pharmaceutical staff, pharmaceutical technical assistants are one of the most important occupational groups in the pharmacy. Along with the pharmacist, the PTA dispenses prescribed and over-the-counter medicines, provides information about side effects and advises on self-medication. The domains of the PTA also include the formulation of individually prepared medicines, as well as advice on self-medication and care products. With the PTA Forum Live, and its infotainment features, expopharm has provided PTAs with a first point of contact and a location that also offers expopharm exhibitors a variety of efficient ways in which to participate. You can participate by placing brands on the respective learning and interaction platforms or by developing individual stations. Other turnkey sponsorship packages are also available. If PTAs are one of the core target groups for your business, you should definitely consider joining the PTA Forum Live. Brochure coming soon!


Newcomer Days

Funded participation for young companies

Startups are the icing on the cake of every industry. However, it is often very difficult for young companies to communicate their innovative ideas to a wider specialised audience, especially in highly competitive markets. Expopharm provides them with an affordable and efficient opportunity with its new Newcomer Days. On the first two days of the event, startups less than five years old have the opportunity to present themselves and their ideas at expopharm in an international environment. Electronic material can be easily integrated with the displays of the specially designed workstations in the Newcomer Area. This enables young companies to test their market potential with their target group and make valuable contacts in the adjacent network café. The Newcomer Area will be included in expopharm’s communication activities. A competition will offer the opportunity to win a full reimbursement of the stand fees. There are also plans for an E-Health pitch, which will also address investors. Download brochure
