Feb. 18, 2020

CPhI South East Asia has been rescheduled after consultation with local government and authorities, and advice from the World Health Organization (WHO) in regard to COVID-19.

The event has been rescheduled from March 4-6 to July 1-3 2020 at the IMPACT Centre in Bangkok, Thailand. 

As of today, more than 73,400 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed, including at least 1,874 deaths. The World Health Organization, which has declared the virus a global health emergency, said there’s been more than 150 coronavirus cases in about two dozen countries outside of China

“CPhI South East Asia is a tremendous event for both Thailand and the Southeast Asian region as a whole, but the safety of our attendees, exhibitors and staff is integral to everything that we do. Following an extensive consultation, and in line with the recommended safety measures, we are taking extra precautions and will now host the event in July. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by the rescheduled dates.” commented Silvia Forroova, Brand Director at Informa Markets.

CPhI South East Asia will continue to provide updates to its attendees and exhibitors through direct communications and on its website in due course. The event will be held at the same venue, but will move to the Challenger 2 hall for the newly confirmed date.

“We thank our partners for their continued patience and understanding, and we remain available to help in any way we can. But more importantly, we must express our support for those affected in China, and all around the world,”  added Forroova.
