NHIA, the voice of the home and specialty infusion industry, will be holding its
2020 Annual Conference
April 5-9, 2020, bringing together more than 1,200 industry professionals together for the industry's leading education and networking event.
IACP, the voice for pharmacy compounding, will be hosting its EduCon 2020 event, bringing together pharmacists, technicians and other compounding professionals together for education and networking opportunities within the industry.
Both events will be held concurrently at the Gaylord Rockies in Denver, in this first-time partnership. This newly built Gaylord conference center offers accommodations, dining options, and conference and exhibit floor space all under one roof.
"This co-location allows us to expose our respective members to different practices and business models, as well as expand education opportunities for both groups of attendees. Our mutual goal is to provide attendees with an enriched networking and learning experience," said NHIA's President and CEO Connie Sullivan, BSPharm.
IACP attendees will have the opportunity to attend NHIA's Sterile Compounding Clinic - a four-day program on sterile compounding standards and best practices and visit
NHIA's exhibit floor to see innovative home infusion products and services from more than 100 companies serving the industry. There will also be joint NHIA and IACP networking opportunities.
"Each conference will retain its individual flavor and mission, but the fresh perspective and additional networking with industry professionals allows both organizations to create a big-tent event, convening significant compounding segments of the health care industry," said IACP Executive Vice President Scott Brunner, CAE.
Details on registration and respective conference programming will be announced in the coming months.
NHIA is a trade association that represents companies that provide infusion therapy to patients in their homes, as well as companies that manufacture and supply infusion and specialty pharmacy products. Infusion therapy involves patient-specific compounded medications, supplies, and a range of pharmacy, nursing, and other clinical services for delivering care to patients in the home setting.

IACP is the voice for pharmacy compounding, representing thousands of pharmacists, technicians, students, researchers and suppliers. Compounding exists for patients and animals who are not served by traditional pharmaceutical manufacturers. We create custom medications that patients simply cannot get anywhere else. Every day, our members play a critical, often life- or-death role in patients' lives. They are a valued part of the health care team, creating essential medications unavailable elsewhere for a range of issues, including autism, oncology, dermatology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, women's health, and more.
