Driving Competition to Improve Lives

ACCESS! 2018 promises more opportunities to network, connect and collaborate than ever before. Our theme is “Driving Competition to Improve Lives.” Healthy, competitive markets – currently at risk – sustain our businesses, contain costs and benefit the millions of patients relying on our medications.

Our program includes a Expo Hall Meet & Greet, Welcome Reception, Networking Luncheon, Expo Hall Reception, Annual Meeting Reception & Dinner and a Farewell Luncheon. For the first time, attendees will also be able to schedule one-on-one meeting time via “Access Connect.” 

Join agency officals, along with CEOs, experts, and policymakers for the insight you need in these exciting, unruly times.

Exhibitor Information:

Showcase Your Company at Access! 2018

AAM's Annual Business Exposition offers a highly interactive and professional business environment in which industry vendors can meet generic industry executives. Building on the success of prior years, we offer our exhibitors abundant networking time with industry decision-makers by hosting breakfasts and breaks in the Expo ballroom as well as an Exhibit Hall Meet and Greet on Monday prior to the Welcome Reception. And the Tuesday afternoon AAM Business Expo Reception has proven to be a highly profitable time for our exhibitors. One full plenary session pass and one Expo pass are included in the booth price. Please note, AAM’s Business Expo sells out each year, early registration is strongly advised.

About AAM:

AAM works to ensure more generic and biosimilar medicines are more accessible to more people who need them.

The Association for Accessible Medicines, formerly the Generic Pharmaceutical Association, improves access to safe, quality and effective medicine. Better access to medicine is relevant to everybody because, after all, we’re all patients at some point.
