NEW YORK, April 24, 2017—Haig Barrett is honored to serve CPhI as their press relations and marketing partner for their debut North American event. The inaugural CPhI North America will take place May 16–18, 2017, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA, USA, adjacent to the 33nd edition of InformEx, the home of fine and specialty chemicals.

The dynamic community of industry leaders within the evolving fine, specialty, and custom chemicals industries will assemble alongside pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry leaders to tackle the challenges and opportunities before them. The launch of CPhI North America, co-located with InformEx, has been strategically timed to take advantage of strong industry growth and innovation while addressing the ever-increasing challenges to the future prosperity of the industry.

“CPhI North America will provide an unrivaled opportunity to become a key stakeholder in the largest pharmaceutical market,” said Robyn Duda, CPhI North America Portfolio Director. “With the projected growth of the pharma industry in this region and the real challenges the industry is facing, there isn’t a better time to bring such an established brand to the North American pharma market.”

“I’ve been attending both conferences over the past25 years and it is so nice to be a part of this U.S first,” said Haig Armaghanian, CEO of Haig Barrett.

Connect Conference Program

While there are so many exciting aspects to the first-ever CPhI North America and InformEx events, perhaps one of the most exciting is the conference program. Powered by the expertise of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA), and UBM’s rich programming resources, the Connect Conference is unlike any program ever assembled. Conference delegates will have full access to both conference tracks, which will include more than 44 sessions with more than 55 industry experts.

The full InformEx and CPhI Connect programs are much too large to list completely within this release, but more details are available at and

“Both the pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals industries are at exciting crossroads of transformation that include both challenges and opportunities,” shared Haig Armaghanian, Chief Visionary Officer, Haig Barrett. “We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to partner with CPhI North America and InformEx to help to advance needed industry evolution via dynamic programming and the assembling of industry leaders and solution providers.”
