Lugano, Switzerland, October 6, 2014 – Helsinn Group, the company focused on building quality cancer care, today announces that Helsinn Advanced Synthesis will be exhibiting at the 2014 CPHI Worldwide trade show, which will be held in France at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition center, from October 7th-9th 2014.

CPHI Worldwide, organized by UBM Live, is the market-leading trade show for the global pharmaceutical ingredients industry and a key networking event. Last year’s event, in Frankfurt, had 34,000 attendees and 2,200 exhibitors where it hosted senior decision-makers and key players from over 140 countries, covering each stage of the pharmaceutical supply chain, from drug discovery to finished dosage.

At this year’s event, Helsinn’s booth 5N99, in Hall 5, will be part of “Piazza Ticino”, a zone completely dedicated to Tessin, featuring companies from Farma Industria Ticino, and its chemical and pharmaceutical industry associates.

Farma Industria Ticino, the association of chemical and pharmaceutical industries in the Swiss canton of Ticino, includes 27 member companies with a combined workforce of 2,400 employees and which generates a total annual turnover of approximately 2 billion Swiss Francs.

Helsinn’s booth, with its new corporate brand identity, will feature its products and services, including Helsinn’s recent cytotoxic facility, and introduce its newly launched corporate brand identity. There will also be a Licensing-Out corner, highlighting the finished drug forms currently available on the market, as well as the pipeline of products under development and open for licensing discussions. This aims to demonstrate how high manufacturing skills and capacity actually translate into top-quality finished products available for healthcare professionals and patients.

Helsinn’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Riccardo Braglia, commented: “CPHI Worldwide is the must-attend event for the pharmaceuticals ingredients industry, and Helsinn is delighted to have the opportunity to showcase its products and services and to meet senior decision-makers from around the world at this event. We look forward to meeting you there.”
