Canon Communications acquires Pharmapack

Published on .

Los Angeles—Canon Communications, which targets the advanced, technology-based manufacturing industry, announced it has acquired the Pharmapack trade show from French events organizer Oriex (Organization of International Congresses and Exhibitions). Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Pharmapack serves Europe’s $9 billion pharmaceutical packaging marketplace. In 2007, the show switched to an annual format from a biannual.

Canon also announced it will introduce the BIOMEDevice Europe conference and exhibition and co-locate it with Pharmapack in Paris. BIOMEDevice debuted in San Jose, Calif., in October and drew 3,010 attendees.
