world's second drug market by 2015(1)," noted Haf Cennydd, Brand Director,
ICSE, P-MEC China and BioPh China. She further noted, "This continued growth
has translated into continuously improving results for our events and has
enabled us to constantly evolve our brands to reflect market trends. For this
year's events we are excited to introduce a conference programme which will
add even greater value for our visitors."

The inaugural China conference series, titled "Pharma R&D and
Collaboration Strategies", will address global pharmaceutical issues, with an
emphasis on China's pharma market, across key areas such as New Drug
Discovery, Biopharm, Biosimilars, CRO/CMO, API Sourcing, Generics and Export
Strategies and more. It will bring together Chinese and global pharma
companies to explore different views regarding the China pharmaceutical
market. Thirty eminent speakers from international pharmaceutical companies
and research institutes, such as the FDA, Novartis, USP-China, Roche R&D
Center, GSK China/HK, AstraZeneca Innovation Centre China, sanofi-aventis,
REVA PHARMA, Dr. Reddy's and Shanghai Pharma, will share their knowledge and
research strategies. Additionally, in-depth case studies covering R&D and
business development strategies will be presented by an outstanding panel of
Chinese, Indian and international speakers from industry leading companies
and associations.

The introduction of the conference programme to the China events follows
the successful launch of a similar series at the CPhI Worldwide, CPhI South
America and CPhI India events and is expected to draw over 400 attendees. The
series will be offered in seven individually bookable 3-hour modules and

ICSE China offers a meeting place for major Chinese contract research
organizations (CRO) and contract manufacturing organizations (CMO). By
partnering with the co-located events, ICSE looks to offer comprehensive
industry access within the growing Chinese pharma market. Currently, contract
services and outsourcing are booming sectors in the Chinese pharma market.
Suppliers within this market have been able to successfully identify new
areas for expansion in both the domestic and global markets and ICSE and
co-located events provide face-to-face access to this growing market. The
synergy between the events further serves to improve the visitor experience
during the time spent in Shanghai.
