NCPA 2023 Preview

RxSafe will be exhibiting at NCPA's 2023 Annual Convention from Oct. 14-17 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

NCPA 2023

The NCPA Annual Convention stands out as the sole national business event catered to independent pharmacists and their staff. No other event offers such a unique blend of peer-driven business education, a full year's worth of continuing education units (CEs), or the chance to network with both familiar faces and fresh acquaintances. Additionally, the Expo Hall boasts a range of companies showcasing products and services essential for enhancing your business's efficiency and profitability. This convention is an indispensable experience for all independent pharmacies.

Why Attend This Year's Show?

With the looming "DIR Apocalypse" in January 2024, pharmacy operators will need to be prepared to shore up their cash flow through revenue-enhancing business strategies to stay profitable.

NCPA President Hugh Chancy, who also co-owns Chancy Drugs in South Georgia, says the event comes at a crucial time for community pharmacy, stressing the need for independent owners to be "proactive in planning for and responding to industry challenges. The Convention will feature phenomenal networking opportunities, vendors, CEs – it is chock-full of strategies that attendees can take home, put into practice, and use to elevate their offerings and their operations. I’m looking forward to what is sure to be an information- and action-packed event.”
