FlyPharma Europe took place at the Leipziger Messe, benefiting from dedicated conference facilities and an ideal location close to Leipzig city center. Leipziger Messe is one of the ten leading trade fair companies in Germany and one of the top 50 worldwide. With Leipzig right in the center of Europe, it is quick and convenient to get to by any means – whether by car, train, coach or plane.
Leipziger Messe’s exhibition grounds are situated just off of the motorway, near the Schkeuditzer Kreuz junction. Leipzig/Halle Airport is only eight minutes away by car.
Leipzig offers an excellent public transport network. From Leipzig Central Station, you can reach the ‘Leipzig Messe’ stop in just six minutes by regional train (RB) or suburban train (S-Bahn). Tram line 16 also runs directly from the city center to the exhibition grounds (final stop ‘Messegelände’) in around 20 minutes.
The conference was held in the Meeting Area Messehaus. Click here for a map of the exhibition grounds indicating the entrance for FlyPharma Europe.

Welcome to Leipzig!
Leipzig has a long history of scientific research and innovation, and today its BioCity Campus, in the southeast of the city, offers a hub for stakeholders in the biotechnology, life sciences and healthcare industries. BIO CITY LEIPZIG is at the heart of the campus, providing a dedicated space for life science companies to work and conduct research, with a particular focus on supporting start-ups and generating partnership opportunities.
Leipzig/Halle Airport (LEJ) is the fourth-largest air cargo handling center in Europe and the number two in Germany. Freight volumes at LEJ increased by 15% from approx. 1.3 to almost 1.6 million tonnes in 2021, and with its CEIV Pharma certification, the airport is the ideal logistics platform for handling temperature- and time-sensitive pharmaceutical consignments round the clock. LEJ is also DHL’s largest hub anywhere in the world and it is the first regional air freight center for Amazon Air in Europe. Located at the heart of Europe, the airport offers 24/7 operations to more than 80 cargo airlines, with routes encompassing more than 250 destinations around the globe, and has direct links to the trans-European road and rail networks.
All of this makes Leipzig the perfect location for the next FlyPharma Europe, which aims to bring together pharma, biopharma and biotech companies with air cargo and logistics services to promote open dialogue and solution-finding between these stakeholders.
Leipzig can be found within the state of Saxony, and is close to its border with Saxony-Anhalt. Both states are committed to strategic cross-border collaborations to maintain a strong position for the economic region of Central Germany, and FlyPharma Europe offers an opportunity to highlight this location as an innovative life sciences and attractive logistics hotspot.
