Team Discount

There is a special group registration bonus: when 3 pharmaceutical/medical device/biotech industry professionals from the same company register and pay to attend the conference, 1 additional person from that same company may attend the conference for free. Many companies have taken advantage of this team discount which allows company colleagues from different groups to benefit from all the learning and sharing as a team.


Location & Room Block

This year the Sharing Conference™ will be at the magnificent MGM in National Harbor, Maryland. We will be close to Washington, DC and easily accessible from all parts of the country. The conference registration fee does not include hotel or travel costs. The Sharing Conference room block is closed. Room reservations now are on a space-available basis at the hotel’s prevailing rate. If you are attending the Sharing Conference and still need to book a room, please call (914) 747-1400 for assistance.


Attendee Policy

Conference attendees are divided into two primary categories: (1) pharmaceutical/life science compliance manufacturer/biotech and/or medical device company employees and government employees and (2) suppliers/vendors in related areas who are registered exhibitors. Vendors who do not have a booth and are not exhibiting may not attend the conference. Vendor attendees (non-pharmaceutical manufacturers) are required to purchase an exhibit booth package to attend the conference and they receive the same benefits as their pharmaceutical/medical device/biotech counterparts. As a not-for-profit organization, the Alliance relies on the financial support of the vendor community and appreciates their economic and educational contributions. All conference attendees consent and allow the Sharing Conference, or any entity authorized by the Sharing Alliance, to use images taken at a Sharing Alliance related event. It is understood that these images may be used on the conference website and/or in promotional materials, and that the images are exclusively for Sharing Alliance-related purposes, and not for profit.


Conference Cancellation - Transfer Registration

Conference registration refunds are not available, regardless of circumstances. An existing paid registration may be transferred to another member of your organization. There is a $100 charge for transferring an existing registration. The person requesting the transfer will need to complete a transfer registration form. Details can be found here or call (914) 747-1400 for instructions.


Guest Policy

Registered attendees may bring a spouse or guest and a $350 flat fee will be charged to cover the cost of group meals. A spouse or guest is defined as a non-industry person and must not be part of the pharmaceutical/life science community or an employee in your company. Guests must be registered using a paper conference registration form.
