CPhI Worldwide 2012 Drives Growth and Innovation in the Pharma Industry

AMSTERDAM, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading events organiser, UBM Live, announced today that CPhI Worldwide once again delivered an exceptional platform for both growth and innovation in the pharmaceutical industry, with more than 30,000 visitors and 2,200 exhibitors in attendance at this year's show, gathered to establish and re-establish business connections and ink new business deals.

In a pre-show survey conducted by UBM Live, 90% of CPhI visitors rated their business opportunity in the global pharmaceutical market positively. The pre-show optimism was matched at CPhI Worldwide with participating companies reporting about exceptional meetings at the Feria over the three action packed days. Many business deals were closed and blockbuster announcements made by attendees, including a new biocatalysis partnership between Almac and DSM and Novasep's €30m investment to make the "world's largest" chromatography based API production plant.  

In addition to eclipsing total attendance figures from Frankfurt in 2011, UBM Live also celebrated the growing diversity of the Pharma industry with record representation from over 140 countries on the show floor in Madrid. Fifteen of these countries were spotlighted in the Global Pavilions format, which featured products and services from each corresponding country in returning pavilions for China, India, Korea, Argentina, Brazil, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Scotland, Portugal, North Africa, Egypt, Morocco and North America. The format was larger than ever before with two newcomers from Russia and Malaysia.

"Our main goal as the organisers of CPhI Worldwide is to create an environment that drives growth and innovation for the global Pharma industry," commented Andrew Pert, Brand Director at UBM Live. "Anyone walking the expo halls could see that the show was successfully facilitating business connections. People from across the globe were able to make new partnerships and learn about the most important trends and regulations in the industry, all in one place. On top of this, the winners of the CPhI Pharma Awards acted as a clear reflection of the innovation that is happening in Pharma on an ongoing basis."

The announcement of the CPhI Pharma Awards winners for Best Innovation in Pharma, Best Sustainable Packaging and Best Sustainable Stand Design, served to celebrate global diversity, innovation and sustainability in the pharmaceutical industry. The gold winner of the Best Innovation award was Haemopharm Healthcare's NIV for their needle free vial closure. Silver went to Merck Millipore's bimodal silica, which is used as a drug delivery platform and bronze was awarded to BioClin's Multi-Oral Remin remineralisation gel for application in the oral cavity. The Best Sustainable Stand Design award was given to Solvias, who also won this award last year in Frankfurt. Finally, the newest introduction to the awards line up, Best Sustainable Packaging, celebrated MWV Healthcare's Shellpak Renew Medication Adherence-Enhancing Solution.

"We feel it is important to not just say that we support innovation for the industry, but to show it through our offering. Introductions like the CPhI mobile app, the CPhI Global Meetings programme, and the expansion of our zoning format to highlight more specific sectors of the industry than ever before, mirror our goal of providing attendees and exhibitors more value leading into the event and while onsite. These features were built in to offer comprehensive information to all attendees and allow for better planning and navigation of the event, and we will continue looking at new ways to innovate for an improved event experience," Pert continued.

CPhI Worldwide, the flagship event in the CPhI Pharma portfolio, was held from October 9th to 11th at the Feria de Madrid and complemented by co-located shows ICSE for contract and outsourced services, P-MEC Europe for pharmaceutical machinery and equipment, and InnoPack for innovative packaging solutions. It is part of a global rotation of CPhI events in India, Southeast Asia, Japan, China, and South America. While onsite in Madrid, organisers announced that this portfolio would expand once again to include Russia. The new event will be co-located with IPhEB (the International Forum for Pharmacy, Medical, Equipment and Biotechnology) from April 10 -11, 2013 at the Manege Central Exhibition Hall in St. Petersburg.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
