Next year, PBMI will celebrate our 25th National Conference Anniversary in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel, March 2-4, 2020.  For more than two decades, we’ve hosted this meeting to educate and help healthcare stakeholders stay up to date on best practices/strategies for effective management of the ever-evolving drug benefit. Our conference attendance continues to grow and attracts a diverse audience of health plan executives, employers, benefit managers, pharmacy professionals, consultants, PBMs, technology companies, academics, and more.

As an industry thought leader, take advantage of our platform to get in front of key decision makers to share your knowledge and expertise about the drug benefit. 

Our attendees really enjoy listening to industry thought leaders,

“Great conference loaded with industry information, awesome venue, will go again.” [Employer]

“I have attended the PBMI conference for seven straight years. I love all the great information presented, networking afforded and the opportunity to participate in an event that brings together such talent and thought leaders in the industry!  It helps me the ability to be better at my job! Thank you!” [Consultant]

and presentations featuring proven case studies or perspectives are always a hit.

Note: If you’re a consultant or PBM, bring your client as a co-presenter to share their success stories – our audience enjoys testimonials!
