There is a special group registration bonus for industry attendees: 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 specialties to benefit from all the educational sessions and sharing as a team.
Location & Room Block
This year’s 30th Sharing Conference™ celebration is being held at the MGM National Harbor, located on the banks of the Potomac, minutes from Washington, DC, and easily accessible from all parts of the country.

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 acknowledges and appreciates their economic and educational contributions.
All 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.
