We recognize the unique opportunity the Business Forum offers attendees for private meetings and networking.

Evening receptions are open to all conference attendees. Member Company Lunch Receptions take place concurrently during lunch Wednesday and Thursday and offer excellent opportunities for interactions between PBM members and drug manufacturers. Additionally, PCMA offers private meeting rooms to members and to sponsors as part of their sponsorship benefits. Meetings in these rooms are just as much a part of the conference program as are sessions and more formal networking so we encourage all attendees to take advantage of the opportunity to schedule private meetings during the conference.
