CellMark Chemicals’ team recently attended one of the most important shows in the Pharmaceutical Industry called CPhI (Convention on Pharmaceutical Ingredients). Every year the event is held in one of three European countries rotating between Spain, Germany, and France with over 36,000 attendees.
Every sector of the pharmaceutical market is represented under one roof, making it an effective way of visiting our global partners, both suppliers and customers. It is impressive to view the whole spectrum of pharmaceutical manufacturing and supply chain in one place over the course of three days.
Rick Schatz, Senior Product Manager responsible for the Americas reflects on the event: “Aside from the business aspect of CPhI, what impresses me the most is meeting so many people from around the world. It was reported that attendees from over 150 countries participated this year which offers great opportunities to experience other people and cultures.” Rick continues: “One such opportunity presented itself when a local Spanish company, Quality Chemicals, invited us to visit their factory followed by traditional flamenco dancing. It was fantastic evening and truly one of the perks of working at an international company such as CellMark.”
Overall we accomplished a lot at the show coming home with new business and more importantly, new ideas to drive future business growth.
