The PCMA Annual Meeting 2019 will take place at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, AZ, September 23 and 24

The Annual Meeting is the industry’s premier executive conference. The event is tailored specifically for senior executives from PBMs and their affiliated business partners – most notable drug manufacturers. We’ve designed the Annual Meeting to be an important part of your business strategy and we are proud of the unique value that the conference offers to PBM, specialty pharmacy, and pharma industry executives.

The decision makers in attendance, educational insights, and business opportunities are ultimately what make the Annual Meeting so valuable. There are many pressing issues impacting the health care industry today, key among them are pharmaceutical innovation and affordability, access and value. These and other issues will be addresses both on and off the stage during the two day conference. The interaction and dialogue that take place at this event serve to promote continued industry collaboration addressing the many challenges we face.


Speakers are among the PBM, specialty pharmacy, pharma and biotech, and other affiliated industries’ top thought leaders and decision makers.

The schedule includes general sessions whose topics are designed to be strategic in nature.


The event offers attendees a unique opportunity for business meetings and networking. Evening receptions will be held both days of the conference, and select PBM member companies host networking receptions during breakfast and lunch.


In this era of high drug prices and expensive specialty medications, working collaboratively has never been more important.  The relationships built among the decision makers who attend serve to promote industry dialogue throughout the year.

Additionally, PCMA offers private meetings room facilities. The ability to conduct onsite business meetings is a core value of the conference. We hope that all attendees have the opportunity to engage with new and existing industry colleagues in these meeting rooms.
