PALM SPRINGS, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Pharmacy Development Services (PDS) announced today the details of its 10th annual Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference, scheduled Feb. 27—March 1, 2014, at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. PDS unveiled its 2014 conference theme—“Play Big. The Game is Changing.”—which speaks to providing pharmacy owners with actionable business, marketing, leadership and financial strategies to thrive in the evolving industry.
“I went from being a stressed out owner to being one who can relax and have some time off. I learned how to do that from the conference.”
“The ‘play big’ attitude is crucial for independent pharmacy owners to remain strong in today’s industry,” said PDS founder and CEO Dan Benamoz, RPh. “Our conference is unlike any other—we focus on the business strategies not taught in pharmacy school. And, our attendees have proven track records of taking these learnings and creating real change and tangible business results.”
The conference, which debuted in 2005, has grown its attendance each year and is expected to attract more than 1,000 independent pharmacy professionals in 2014.
"I think it's the best conference of all pharmacy conferences around,” Teresa Stickler of Melrose Pharmacy and a past conference attendee, said. “I went from being a stressed out owner to being one who can relax and have some time off. I learned how to do that from the conference.”
Speakers at the conference will range from experts inside and outside the industry, aimed at motivating attendees in an up-beat format. The scheduled lineup will be announced at a later date.
Additionally, the conference attracts more than 80 exhibitors offering a range of products and services for pharmacies. Exhibiting sponsors this year include Parata Systems, Live Oak and PioneerRx.
