Join us as we kick off our 2019 conference on Thursday night from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Grand Hall at Union Station Hotel! At our Welcome Reception, you will experience the beauty and wonder of the Grand Hall’s 3D Light Show–where flowers sway, an indoor fireworks show amazes, and giant blue whales swim– nosh on delicious appetizers and hors d’oeuvres, sip on tantalizing beverages, and mingle with your pharmacy peers from across the country.
Attendees must check in and pick up their conference badge and bring it with them to this event. The Registration Desk will be open until 6:00 p.m. near the Regency Ballroom in Union Station, so grab your badge and then come join us in the Grand Hall!
You will have the opportunity to create a Friday night you will never forget! There are three different and unique networking events taking place on Friday night, and we are sure you will find one that appeals to you! There are maximum capacity restrictions for each event, so attendance is available on a first come, first served basis. You will be able to RSVP for the event that most appeals to you when you register to attend our 2019 Conference.
All aboard our Conference Express! The St. Louis Train Tour will whisk you away on a luxury train ride to explore the sights of St. Louis. Each train car will provide a different experience for attendees – from lounge areas and observation decks to a fully stocked, open bar and dining cars – and you will be able to roam from train car to train car. This exclusive cocktail and dinner party experience offers unparalleled views of the city and is guaranteed to be a highlight of your weekend!
We consistently hear that networking and building relationships are some of the biggest factors in people’s decision to attend a conference, so we have crafted this experience with that in mind. Our Fire & Light Cocktail Reception will take place beside the lake at Union Station, where light displays dance with pyrotechnics as the music plays throughout the night. You’ll be able to connect with fellow attendees at this event, as well as enjoying delectable hors d’oeuvres and expertly mixed cocktails all evening long! Enjoy live music throughout the evening and make connections that will last a lifetime in this gorgeous event space!
Do you ever feel like you just need to let loose and embrace your inner explorer/architecture buff/adrenaline junkie/child? If so, then the City Museum Adventure is for you! Attendees will hop aboard a private trolley and head across town to the City Museum St. Louis, where all kinds of adventures await! We will have exclusive access to the Architecture Floor, where an open bar and mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres will keep you fueled throughout the night. Venture forth from our private event space to explore the rest of the museum, where you will find a 10-story slide, a school bus dangling from the side of the building, a vast network of caverns to climb through, and more! Adventurers, adrenaline junkies, and culture-aficionados will not want to miss this unique St. Louis experience!
We do not have any specific networking activities planned for you on Saturday night. However, several of our Exhibiting Partners are planning their own events for attendees throughout the city. We will post more information about these networking events as it becomes available. Stay tuned for more details!
Alternatively, you can grab a group of your newest and closest friends from the conference and venture out into the city on your own. Watch these videos for more ideas of where to go in St. Louis, MO!
