Central Asia’s largest exhibition
14, 15, 16 of April
AptekaExpo is Central Asia’s largest exhibition to focus on both pharmaceutical technologies and finished pharmaceutical products.
Every year, leading pharmaceutical developers, producers, and suppliers come to the event to showcase: medicines, medical products, cosmetics, homeopathy products, compression stockings and medical hosiery, mineral water, aromatherapy products, herbal medicine, and much more.
The Pharmtech sector developed out of the extensive experience gained from TIHE, the Tashkent International Healthcare Exhibition, which is one of Central Asia’s largest. The sector acts as an ideal venue for pharmaceutical producers to meet with suppliers of technology, ingredients, equipment, and packaging services for the industry.
Professionals from all over the sector take part in the event: from scientists and practising doctors to representatives from commercial companies, pharmacy chains, and Government agencies.
THE EXHIBITION AIMS TO:
- Promote the development of Uzbekistan’s pharmaceutical sector
- Act as a platform for sector professionals to share their experience
- Enable visitors to find out about the latest developments in the sector
- Help to forge new business links and establish dialogue between major figures in the sector
- Organise a business programme for practising doctors
