SAPHEX, Africa’s largest 100% dedicated pharmaceutical exhibition and conference, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Frost & Sullivan, a global research and consulting organisation devoted to identifying growth opportunities and creating visionary growth strategies for their clients.

The partnership will allow SAPHEX and Frost & Sullivan to collaborate on various aspects of the event, including mutual promotion of each other’s products, as well as incorporating Frost & Sullivan’s market research expertise into the pharmaceutical conference stream at SAPHEX 2017.

“We are pleased to be a strategic partner with Frost & Sullivan and look forward to collaborating with them on our SAPHEX 2017 event,” said Scott Colman, CEO, SAPHEX. “Being a world-renowned organization, they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience that can help shape our event.”

Africa’s pharmaceutical industry is growing in every sector and growth is continuing at a rapid pace. The value of Africa’s pharmaceutical industry jumped to $20.8 billion in 2013 from just $4.7 billion a decade earlier. The African pharma market is predicted to be worth around $40 billion to $65 billion by 2020, so it is time for companies and individuals to stake their place in this exciting frontier market.

“We are very proud to be associated with the SAPHEX 2017 event,” said Frost & Sullivan Head & Vice President for Healthcare MENASA, Sandeep Sinha. “The conference will be covering issues that are fundamental to the healthcare industry in Africa, as well as key industry trends taking place – like the rise in consumer preference for generic medicines and the digital transformation of healthcare as we know it. In addition to the presentations delivered by leading health experts, the event will also provide excellent networking opportunities.”
