Information regarding our Annual West Coast Conference

This three day event is held in Southern California, and features pharmaceutical executives, CEOs of diverse scientific and clinical enterprises, and other great guest speakers. Our 2020 8th Annual conference will limit participation to 200 attendees to facilitate networking and relationship building and to enable smaller diverse companies to have a higher profile, greater success with meeting with key stakeholders and better return on their investment.
