In 2017, the Summit will welcome more than 6,000 attendees representing over 1,000 organizations, including pharmacy providers, health systems, pharma/biotech manufacturers, payers, drug wholesalers and many other specialty pharmacy stakeholder organizations.
During the four-day meeting, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of all aspects of specialty pharmacy from renowned industry speakers who share insight about the most current information on the many facets of the rapidly growing $150 billion specialty pharmacy channel. In total, the 2017 Summit will feature nearly 100 hours of expert seminars, continuing education sessions, business workshops, networking events, and social events, along with a full exhibit hall that includes over 150 exhibiting organizations.
