TAPI at FCE Brazil 2016

TAPI connects with customers and shares information at FCE Brazil 2016

By Sandra Soares, Director, TAPI Sales, TAPI International Sales Office



FCE Pharma is considered the most important trade show in the region and draws pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors and suppliers from Latin America and neighboring countries. While many attendees were familiar with TAPI, others didn’t realize the scope of products, services and information we offer customers.

Here is a recap of the important things in case you missed the event.

Events Products

TAPI experts held several information sessions – all packed rooms – to highlight our quality products, rigorous compliance standards, innovative R&D, and exceptional customer support through every phase of the product lifecycle. We also introduced several new products planned for the Latin American markets including:


Respiratory: Pulmonary Hypertension – MacitentanSelexipag and Nintedanib

Oncology: Afatinib

Antitrombo: Edoxaban and Apixaban

Our partners at LABMASS Laboratory in Brazil led two well-attended sessions at our exhibit on degredation products, which is a top concern for Latin American pharmaceutical companies. They provided important information and engaged the audience in discussions about preventing unwanted chemicals from affecting pharmaceutical safety.


National and international conferences provide invaluable opportunities for us to spend time with customers and learn how we can serve them better. It was wonderful to meet face-to-face with so many of our current customers and executives from their companies at FCE Pharma. Our discussions explored ways to collaborate more closely and several new ideas to help them maintain their competitive edge. We discussed commercial issues, strategies and timelines for new product launches, and the expert support TAPI provides its partners for their submissions to the Brazilian Ministry of Health. We also explored potential partnerships with companies doing some very innovative work in the industry. With the conference behind us, we are very excited to follow up with everyone we met to learn how we can move forward together.


It wasn’t all business at the TAPI exhibit – we had fun too! Visitors were treated to our signature giveaway: TAPI’s own “tapi”oca. If you are not familiar with tapioca, it is commonly served as pudding and is made from the cassava root which grows right here in Brazil. Numerous attendees also stopped by our booth to have a cartoonist draw their caricature and imprint it on a coffee mug. That’s sure to be a conversation piece and will be a fun way to drink coffee!


This was the first time the TAPI team exhibited at FCE Pharma. It will not be the last. Several attendees told us they were impressed with the range of services TAPI offers and the value we place on building long-term customer relationships. It was important for us to demonstrate that TAPI has a strong local presence in the region and that our knowledgeable team focuses on flexibility. We are committed to working one-on-one with customers to meet their individual needs and will strive to exceed their expectations.
