sense to hold PharmaLytica in Hyderabad, as it is the pharma hub of India, and it gets to reiterate
this claim with the setting up of the largest pharma city in the world, with over 15,000 acres space
dedicated to all aspects of the industry. It is through huge forums as PharmaLytica where visitors
and exhibitors can analyse how their work gets complemented by the building of a dedicated
Pharma City. I am sure buyers and sellers will find PharmaLytica extremely insightful and fruitful, and
I wish it all the best.
Mr Madan Mohan Reddy, Chairman Pharmexcil and Director, Aurobindo Pharma, said:
“We are at a crucial juncture where the pharma industry has to keep on upgrading its way of
thinking, and innovating. There is no scope of sustainability otherwise. It has to understand the
latest developments, analyse them and integrate them in the larger scheme of things. It is in such an
environment that a platform like PharmaLytica helps to propel the industry forward. I must
congratulate UBM for the professional way it has been are conducting the pharma expos worldwide
and moving things in the right direction. I am delighted that one of the ways which a key body like
Pharmexcil gets to proactively support the cause of the industry is through forums such as

I would like to convey my sense of gratitude to platforms such as PharmaLytica. It is absolutely
essential that trade shows meet technocrats, and service providers meet manufacturers to get the
complete picture and rise up to the challenges the pharma sector is giving rise to. UBM India is doing
a wonderful job in the sector, and as President of IPA, I would say that while choosing Hyderabad as
the venue is really justified, it would be great to approach other hubs in India that are rising as well.
They too need all the exposure and support that a platform of this stature affords.
