Asembia Specialty Pharmacy Summit 12th Year
KeyCentrix has attended the annual Asembia Specialty Pharmacy Summit since it began in 2005. This year’s four day event, April 30th through May 3rd, drew a record 5,600 attendees, filling both the Wynn and Encore hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada. Over the years, we have seen the summit grow significantly to include thousands of senior executives and professionals from member pharmacies, vendor partners and other related industry stakeholders. The agenda highlights this year included business workshops, educational seminars, exhibits, and continuing education, along with numerous networking and social events. During the conference, participants gained an in-depth understanding of the specialty pharmacy marketplace while helping to impact its future.
The conference kicked off by honoring this year’s Emcee, Emmy-Award winner Leeza Gibbons, with the Asembia Hendriks Caregiver of the Year award for her dedication and service to family caregivers.
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was a motivational and inspirational keynote speaker this year, and we could relate to his theme of “no person is self-made.” Schwarzenegger was humble as he mentioned he wouldn’t be where he is today without the help of those around him. When he first came to the United State he was rejected because of his looks, but he looked at every opportunity as an experience. He learned from his experiences and was determined to move forward. Schwarzenegger became a bodybuilder, an actor and more recently the Governor of the State of California. Our key takeaway from Schwarzenegger’s speech – if you do not innovate, you become obsolete.
