Final Agenda Now Available

Focused on discovery and optimization challenges of small molecule drug candidates, this year's virtual conference will feature the same high-quality, engaging content you have come to expect from our San Diego event, now available at your convenience via our intuitive and easy-to-use digital platform. Plus, in a virtual format you can view content from parallel offerings later, so as not to miss anything.

More than 600 attendees participated virtually last year with 72% of delegates from pharma/biotech and 13% from academia or government. 66% of attendees were scientists/technologists and 20% were executives/directors.

Delegate feedback was extremely positive with 72% of attendees saying they were very satisfied or satisfied with the virtual event. The ability to join favorite speakers live, while watching others on-demand at their convenience, was one of the most popular features with attendees. Other delegates appreciated the ability to connect with the right attendees via direct message and private Zoom rooms.
