The PCMA Annual Meeting 2021 took place at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO September 20 and 21

The PCMA Annual Meeting is the industry’s premier executive conference. The event is tailored specifically for senior executives from PBMs and their affiliated business partners – most notable drug manufacturers. We’ve designed the Annual Meeting to be an important part of your business strategy and we are proud of the unique value that the conference offers.

PCMA adopted a “Vaccination Required” approach for the Annual Meeting. This means that all attendees provided proof of their COVID-19 vaccination in order to attend the Annual Meeting at the Broadmoor.
