Meet potential customers in Japan from the Pharmaceutical industry

21- 23 April 2010

The Chemical Industries Association, supported by UKTI and British Embassy and Consulate staff in Japan, have put together several successful business development programmes to help UK companies sell their enabling technologies to the Japanese pharmaceutical sector.  The next will be the 7th in a series of such initiatives undertaken by the CIA in Japan.

The CPhI Japan exhibition in Tokyo is the biggest shop window for outsourcing companies trying to win business in Japan’s $70 billion pharmaceutical market.  It takes place 21-23 April 2010.  The CIA, using UKTI funding and British Embassy support, is hoping to offer an all-in service for exhibitors on a UK pavilion at this prestigious event.

The cost of participating varies according to the grant status of applicants.  A 4 sq m area on the pavilion with 2 m of wall space will be £1700 for SMEs.  A 12 sq m booth on the pavilion should cost no more than £4000.  Eligible SMEs can recover £1400 via UKTI, subject to UKTI’s usual terms and conditions.  Booths will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.  Exhibitors on the UK pavilion will have a daily presentation opportunity at a technology showcase seminar at the exhibition, the use of a business lounge, interpretation, a networking reception, discounted hotel accommodation in central Tokyo, guidance on doing business with Japanese drug companies and help in preparing exhibition panels.  In order to cover administrative costs a supplement of £400 plus VAT will be charged per exhibitor.
