The pharma B2B event hosted by the Indian Drug Manufacturers’ Association Tamil Nadu chapter (TN IDMA) every year in Chennai will be held at the Chennai Trade Centre on July 14 and 15 this year with participation of a wide range of stakeholders of the sector.
The business to business event ‘Pharmac South’ is the eighth in the series, but this year it coincides with the launch of the pharma cluster project (Tindivanam Pharma Park) of the Tamil Nadu government. The government on June 5 invited applications from the industry players for the allotment of land. More discussions on the project will be held at the seminars to be conducted as part of the Pharmac South expo, organizers informed.
While briefing Pharmabiz about the event, the chairman of the TN IDMA, J Jayaseelan said the expo is organized mainly to support the industries of drug manufacturing, API manufacturing, cosmetics and neutraceuticals to open up new market opportunities with the big players and pharma giants in the country. The event will showcase the latest innovations of pharmaceutical products, machineries, medical devices and new drug discoveries in addition to the display of latest industrial techniques. According to him, this year’s Pharmac South will be a unique platform for sharing knowledge, experiences, research & developments and other breakthroughs in the pharma sector for all the stakeholders in the industry. The trade fair will enable the MSME units in Tamil Nadu to reach out to hundreds of key industry stalwarts and potential customers from different parts of the country at one place.
Jayaseelan said the health secretary and the MSME secretary of the Tamil Nadu government are also part of this year’s Pharmac South expo, so that the participant exhibitors will get chances to share their concerns with the government. Further, the entrepreneurs who want to invest in the pharma park project at Tindivanam can interact with the project officials and clear their doubts.
