George W. Bush, Indiana Governor
to Speak at AdvaMed 2011
This year’s AdvaMed conference includes a wealth of opportunities for education, networking and expo- sure—and it’s no secret. Last year, the event boasted
a record 1,700 attendees from 360 companies. This year’s
conference, which will be held at the Walter E. Washington
Convention Center in Washington, D.C., from Sept. 26-28,
is unlikely to disappoint past attendees.
Highlights of the 2011 program include plenary sessions
in which speakers from Capitol Hill will discuss the Administration’s health care policy; the search for and creation of capital; opportunities for business development;
and face-to-face meetings with regulatory, reimbursement,
legal, intellectual property, media, investor, government
and policy executives. The agenda features several events
that have proven to be past favorites. The CEOs Unplugged
session, which allows audience members to pick the brains
of leaders from top companies, and sector meetups, which
are networking opportunities individually hosted by leaders in particular industry sectors, both return, and currently
have 24 confirmed speakers between them—the most
since these events were incorporated into the program in
2009 and 2010, respectively.
Faithful AdvaMed attendees have also come to rely on
the meeting for its relevant keynote speakers, and this year
is no exception. AdvaMed welcomes former President
George W. Bush and Indiana Governor Mitchell E. Daniels.
President Bush, who signed the Medicare Modernization
Act in 2003, also will participate in a Q&A session following his address at the plenary lunch on September 27. Governor Daniels, who will speak at the plenary breakfast the
same day, is the former CEO of the Hudson Institute, and
president of North American pharmaceutical operations
for Eli Lilly. Other speakers include Jeffrey E. Shuren, director of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health at
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
