21st June 2024, Welcome By ITC, Bengaluru


As India Pharma Inc continues to expandand progress,elevating its position in the global pharma market necessitates an environment which fosters innovation,facilitates collaborative strategies and newer operating business models.And,this calls for concerted efforts from all stake holders of the industry.

So, the overarching theme for this year's 'Pharma Summits', is 'Co-creating an ecosystem for pharma innovation.'

Organised by Express Pharma, these events will explore and examine factors influencing the pharma ecosystem and focus on crucial areas such as cost competitiveness, advancement in scientific research, creating new capabilities and skills, adapting to new regulations, leveraging emerging technologies for better outcomes, etc.

The first pharma summit in FY2024-25 is the Ahmedabad Pharma Summit April, the second pharma summit of this year is the Bangalore Pharma Summit.


In the ever-evolving landscape of the pharmaceutical industry, the quest for strategic locations that catalyse growth and innovation is more important than ever. Capitalising on geographical advantages, Bengaluru has become a hub for the lifesciences industry. The city is home to a considerable number of lifesciences companies, research institutions, and allied sector’s manufacturing units. As a gateway to Southeast Asia, it is facilitating cross-border trade and connecting businesses to emerging markets.

Beyond logistics, the city’s temperate climate provides an ideal environment for pharma manufacturing and storage, ensuring the integrity and efficacy of products. Coupled with state-of-the-art infrastructure and a robust talent pool nurtured by prestigious educational institutions, the city provides an ideal environment for fostering innovation and research.

As a result, Express Pharma is organizing the maiden edition of the Bengaluru Pharma Summit in June 2024.

It will bring together experts, thought leaders and veterans from the industry and regulatory bodies to assess the potential growth areas in the life sciences industry and explore opportunities for businesses in this sphere to create value, drive in novation and promote long-term sustainability.

The Bengaluru Pharma Summit will be an ideal platform to share experiences, learn from one another, and collaborate on new initiatives and projects that can drive innovation and growth in the pharma sector.
