It would be "totally awesome" if you joined us for the 136th Annual Convention & Trade Show

Like we are totally going back to the #1 resort on Florida’s Emerald Coast for the 2017 APA Annual Convention & Trade Show on June 18 – 21, 2017 and you don’t want to miss it.

We’re very excited to have our most popular speaker back for 2017.  Don Yaeger, will join us on Sunday with another encouraging, inspiring and empowering message.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Don – he is an award-winning keynote speaker, business leadership coach, a nine-time New York Times Best-selling author and an all-around nice guy! 

This is the place to be in June if you want to connect with friends and colleagues, share your vision for the future of pharmacy, check out the newest products and services, learn a little something from great CPE programs and throw it back to the 80s.

You heard me – we’re talking about the days of metal bands and big hair, members only jackets and parachute pants, leg warmers and mini skirts…This year’s bash is definitely not going to be “square”!

Now for the basics - convention activities will take place at the Baytowne Conference Center which is adjacent to the Grand Sandestin.  APA has secured reduced room rates on a variety of different rooming options at Sandestin – both beachside and bayside.
