FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Dec. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Asembia's 2021 Specialty Pharmacy Summit will take place October 26 through October 29, 2021 at the Wynn Las Vegas. The date change for 2021 is due to challenges from COVID-19 which have disrupted the business travel industry throughout the world. The new October timeframe is a one-time schedule change for 2021 as the Summit will revert to its regularly scheduled springtime dates in 2022.
"Our top priority is to host the Asembia conference in a safe environment and we believe that by next October, this will be possible," stated Lawrence Irene, CEO, Asembia. "The pandemic has had a substantial impact on all conferences. We are pleased to announce that Asembia coordinated our date change with the National Association of Specialty Pharmacy (NASP) so that industry stakeholders can attend both conferences in the fall. Our intent in partnering with NASP is to help advance the industry in an efficient and meaningful way," he continued. "We are eager to reconnect with everyone in person, as we look forward to what will surely be a long-awaited reunion for the pharmaceutical industry," Irene concluded.
"We are pleased to work with Asembia and coordinate schedules for these important industry events. Like Asembia, NASP is excited to return to live events in September and we look forward to the opportunity to renew old friendships, foster new partnerships and prepare for the future," stated Sheila M. Arquette, RPh, President & CEO, NASP.
