I've been attending the Independent Pharmacy Conference for the last five years. This is one of the best conferences in the country. They put on an incredible show, it's first class and I feel like I'm going to a Cadillac event. People are always warm and friendly; I can't say enough about it.

What I like most about the conference is being able to network with other people from the same profession, other independent pharmacists like me. And we are able to share our goals and whatever challenges they are facing like me and I always take something back from the conference every year. Last year I learned a few things which have helped grown our business, it is very helpful. And also, the ability to get CE's to renew our licenses is nice. I invite everyone to the conference, it is worthwhile.

I'm a second-year pharmacy student at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and I just came from a session called Profit Mastery, it's been my favorite part so far at the Independent Pharmacy Conference. It really was eye-opening as to whether I wanted to start a business some day and exactly how to be successful doing that. Looking forward to the rest of it.

“I really like the small intimacy of the Independent Pharmacy Conference. This is the first time I have ever attended. I am very pleased I did this. I love the CEs and the panel discussions of other colleagues have been extremely beneficial.”
-- Christine Jacobson - Wasatch Pharmacy Care
“The Independent Pharmacy Conference has been such an amazing experience. The sessions are extremely relevant and educational concerning the future of independent pharmacy and our profession. I can tell that this is a great group of people and their passion is evident when speaking with different members. The event has been extremely supportive of students and I definitely feel inspired to become an independent pharmacist and attending all the Conferences to come!”
-- David Tran - University of Maryland
“I am a first-time attendee and am quite impressed with the Independent Pharmacy Conference. I really appreciate the Trade Show as it enables me to diversify my pharmacy a bit better with the addition of new products—as does the entire event. The programs are very timely and well done by the speakers. I definitely will attend the next conference.”
-- Nelson L. Showalter - Broadway Drug Center
“The Independent Pharmacy Conference offers a really intimate atmosphere, where I get three days of opportunities to spend one-on-one time with members talking about all the issues, talking about programs that we are doing. Everyone is doing things differently than me or better than I am, and I'm doing some different things than they are. At the Conference we are able to share this information to make all of the stores better. It's a great opportunity to meet people from every area of the country and every type of pharmacy.”
-- Mike Flint - Mallatt's Pharmacy
“I'll tell you it's one of the best conventions I've ever attended. The biggest advantage is being able to meet some of the people in our line of work, to be able to chat with them, to be able to social network with them a little bit, to also find out about new products in our workplace that sometimes in our lives as busy pharmacists we don't have a chance to learn about new products, to see new ideas and new innovations.”
