The Fall Senior Executive Conference is one of our semi-annual meetings designed for member company C-suite executives, presidents and their senior executive teams. Each meeting focuses on emerging trends and business strategies and offers great insights and advice, along with many opportunities for dialogue with other senior executive attendees.

Past meetings have focused on the future of immunology, digital and the implications for health (assessing the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in healthcare, blockchain technology and IoT),  and how the ‘omics technologies are evolving (genomics, proteomics and metabolomics). We include a global economic and financial outlook to complement each topical program.

The topic for this event will be proteomics; the newest developments in this space, how companies are capitalizing on these opportunities, and the implications for ALDA member companies. Attendees will experience the top-tier sessions and networking you have come to expect at an ALDA event.
