Ho'olu komo la kaua  (Please join us) for the 135th Annual Convention & Trade Show at the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort June 12 - 15, 2016.

As always, this is your chance to connect with friends and colleagues, share your insight and ideas about moving pharmacy forward, see new pharmacy products and services, attend top-notch CPE programs, and of course, squeeze in a little R&R on the Emerald Coast!


This year we’re planning a luau-themed bash so “Aloha” shirts and leis are definitely welcome! Convention activities will take place at the Baytowne Conference Center which is adjacent to the Grand Sandestin and a stone’s throw from The Village of Baytowne Wharf. 

The Village offers unique dining, shopping and entertainment options. APA has secured reduced room rates on a variety of different rooming options at Sandestin – both beachside and bayside.


Bottom line: You don’t want to miss the biggest event of the year!
