The past year has been one of transformation across the healthcare spectrum, and specialty pharmacy was no exception. With the expanding pipeline of specialty products, ongoing and emerging trends present tremendous opportunities and pressing challenges for this marketplace. Asembia’s 2020 Specialty Pharmacy Summit (May 3-7 at the Wynn & Encore in Las Vegas) will bring together stakeholders from across the industry to investigate these challenges and collectively generate solutions. As the largest annual U.S. healthcare conference for specialty pharmacy, the event will welcome more than 6,500 attendees representing over 1,200 organizations, including pharmacy providers, IDNs, health systems, pharma/ biotech manufacturers, payers, drug wholesalers and many others.

Summit attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of specialty pharmacy from industry speakers who share current insights about the many facets of the nearly $200 billion specialty pharmacy channel. The 2020 Summit promises to be bigger and better than ever. This year’s dynamic event will make the most of the major convention center expansion at Wynn & Encore to build value for attendees and enhance the Summit experience.
