When we talk about Expopharm, we talk about a long tradition and deep roots to the point the trade fair and the pharmaceutical industry in Europe are closely entwined. The reason is simple – the event has been going since 1949 with a new edition every single year. Another interesting fact is the change of host cities. Expopharm alternates between Dusseldorf and Munich. Editions also fall right on the “Deutscher Apothekertag” (Germany’s Pharmacist Day) – a key occupational political event of the German pharmacist calendar. Because the trade fair has a broad focus, there’s no surprise in finding the product portfolio to be incredibly rich. Display categories cover dosing systems, dental care, dentures cleaning aids, drugs, emergency information systems, laboratory supplies, contraceptives, food supplements, heat therapy, homeopathic medicines and more.
