  • The conference takes place in Orlando because virtually every airport in America has a direct flight to Orlando International Airport.
  • We hold the super-conference in Orlando because it is the most affordable location for business events and trade shows and we want to pass any cost savings onto you.
  • Many of you operate pharmacies in colder climates and heading to sunny Orlando in February is always a plus.
  • Orlando is a great family-oriented city with diverse arts and culture. We recommend that you plan your time for sightseeing and amusement parks for pre or post conference since you don’t want to miss a moment of our event.

Unlike other pharmacy conferences, where you have to choose which topics to attend and possibly miss out on useful information, PDS 2018 holds all conference content in a general session. That way you don’t miss any of the business changing information.

The PDS Super-Conference includes a continental breakfast, morning and afternoon snacks along with a hot lunch. Dinner is on your own each night and we recommend you get together with your fellow attendees to continue the collaboration.

There are may places to get clinical education and yet very few for help with the business of owning and running a thriving independent pharmacy. PDS 2018 is solely focused on helping you succeed as a pharmacy owner and in development of your team to increase your bottom line along with your service to your patients. We want to bring to you the best information we can, with no restrictions, and therefore we do not offer CE units for the PDS Super-Conference.

Yes! You will receive a discount of $150 off additional guest (non-member) tickets when purchased at the same time as your primary ticket. The discount will be automatically applied, no need to put in a code.

The PDS Super-Conference is a carefully crafted 3 day event and therefore when you purchase a ticket you get access to all speakers and all days. We do not carve out access to just certain sessions of the conference. We encourage you to attend all 3 days and to invest in yourself and your business. Our primary tickets are PDS Member tickets and Guest tickets. We do not offer student or faculty types of tickets.

As an independent pharmacy business growth conference, this is the can’t miss conference every year if you are an owner or thinking of owning a pharmacy. It is also highly recommended that key employees such as pharmacist or lead technicians attend as they have a huge impact on the finances of your business as well as your culture. Also spouses, partners or other decision makers will get a huge benefit from attending as well.

After purchasing your PDS 2018 ticket you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to access our select hotel room blocks. We highly recommend you only book your rooms through these official channels. Around every major conference there are scammers that will try to sell you hotel rooms that don’t exist.
