FLORHAM PARK, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 03/21/14 -- Armada's Specialty Pharmacy Summit & Expo returns to the Wynn May 5-9, 2014, to celebrate a decade of leadership in the specialty pharmacy industry. To date, executives and key decision-makers from more than 700 companies have registered for this year's Summit, which is slated to be the largest annual specialty pharmacy event in the U.S. healthcare industry. The conference will feature business sessions, educational seminars and expert speakers and industry panelists. Registration numbers are currently tracking well ahead of last year's record 2,200 attendees. With fewer than 45 days left before the start of the event, the Wynn hotel is nearly sold out.
"We are extremely pleased with the tremendous increase in registration for the Summit year after year, and we are encouraged by what these numbers indicate about the growing importance of specialty pharmacy," said Lawrence Irene, RPh, chief executive officer, Armada Health Care. "Ten years ago we had a vision for the specialty pharmacy industry that few thought was possible. The growth of our company and the Summit is proof positive that we were correct in our assumptions, and we will continue to provide pharmacy professionals with the valuable tools, innovative contracts and business opportunities they need to be successful in the specialty pharmacy sector."
This year, Armada will introduce a new mobile and web app for the Summit, which will serve as a tool to allow all attendees the ability to maximize their networking opportunities before, during and after the meeting. The app is available for download on iTunes at http://armada.ht/1cMJuNu and on Google Play at http://armada.ht/1cMJTF.
"We are thrilled to unveil our brand new mobile app in 2014. This dynamic tool will create new opportunities for personalization, connection and engagement during the meeting," noted Randi Hernandez, senior communications manager, Armada Health Care. "App users can now easily access the meeting attendee list, view slide decks and handouts, and connect with colleagues, all with the swipe of a fingertip."
"With the help of the mobile app, networking connections will be proactive and purposeful, rather than fortuitous," commented Robert Irene, RPh, co-founder and president, Armada Health Care. "Our adoption of this type of technology is important, as we believe these tools can serve as powerful engagement platforms. Attendees are coming to expect mobile apps at events in addition to printed programs, and we are meeting the demand by helping participants maximize their opportunities for increased engagement and efficiency."
