The conference begins on Sunday, September 15th and concludes late afternoon Tuesday, September 17th. An agenda will be available soon.
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 departments to benefit from all the learning and sharing as a team.

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.
