Our meetings team is hard at work from home, putting together a fantastic event that will deliver
an outstanding virtual conference experience. Please use this page to find answers to your
immediate questions. We will continue updating the information as we know more.
Access! 2021 Overview
To keep our community healthy and safe during this public health crisis, we are staging a completely virtual Access! 2021 from wherever you choose to be.
The future of generics and biosimilars has never been more important. Our fully virtual format will offer the same education and networking opportunities while protecting the health, safety and well-being of our attendees.
The virtual conference will take place May 26-27, 2021, with all times listed corresponding to United States Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). However, you can expect to see some changes to the schedule to ensure that the format of our conference works with a virtual experience, as well as an on-demand option for those in a different global time zone.
To keep our community healthy and safe during this public health crisis, we are transforming Access! 2021 into a completely virtual conference. Attendees will be able to join globally from the comfort of their own space.
Yes, we are still planning to hold an in-person event in 2022. We will share more details soon.
Registration and Fees
The cost to register for the virtual conference is lower than in years past for the in-person conference. In addition, potential savings are added from attending virtually, as you won’t need to book travel and lodging accommodations. The virtual conference will have a variety of panels across two days of insights and ideas on issues vital to the generic and biosimilar medicines industry.
- AAM / Biosimilars Council Member Fee – $599.00
- Nonmember Fee – $899.00
- Government Fee – $399.00
Please contact Aquera Agee to inquire about nonprofit rates.
For every paid registration to attend virtually, only one device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone) will be allowed to enter the virtual conference. The credits earned, the questions asked and the polling conducted within that single log-in session are all tied to the account of the individual who purchased the virtual event.
Virtual Conference Experience
A virtual conference is hosted entirely over the internet. It allows attendees to access events in real time and follow presentations from their computers or mobile devices. Attendees participate through a conference website designed for the virtual conference. Conference presentations are available on the site. It is possible to participate with questions and comments in real time.
We are offering a variety of panels across two days of insights and ideas on issues vital to the generic and biosimilar medicines industry. We will still have the same ambitious programming you have come to expect with a mix of live and on-demand sessions, as well as manufacturer and sponsor/exhibitor presentations.
The virtual meeting will allow more flexibility for both networking and learning. Recorded content will be available during the meeting, along with live sessions and on-demand sessions. Attendees will be able to participate from wherever they are. All you need is an internet connection to be right there with us.
All sessions will feature speakers in live-streaming broadcasts. You will see the speaker and his or her PowerPoint slides (if the speaker has slides).
An on-demand video library will provide videos to view at the beginning or end of the day or during breaks, to add variety and engagement.
Other features include custom handouts, polling questions, post-event questions and video closed captioning.
Our meeting platform will enable you to contact fellow registered attendees and schedule meetings with others, including exhibitors. There will also be fireside chats and opportunities to mingle with sponsors.
AAM will send you an e-mail with all the information you will need to enter the virtual conference, have a walk around the space and take your front-row seat. Make sure that the e-mail address associated with your registration is current so there is no delay in receiving our communications.

Sponsorship, Exposition and Speakers
Yes. The exhibit hall will be a fun and interactive way to connect with products and services covering every aspect of the industry. These vendors are eager to share their industry know-how and keep you up to date on the latest health care industry trends. The virtual exhibit hall will give you the opportunity to engage in private and public chats, download materials, view videos and much more.
The great news is that AAM will have the ability to virtually feature and include sponsors and exhibitors in the event. We will work in partnership with each sponsor and exhibitor to shape an experience that delivers the same or greater value as you would have at the live event. Exhibitors will also be able to capture information from attendees who visit their booth. Please contact Aquera Agee for more information.
As a speaker, you are able to provide industry professionals with a better understanding of the regulatory and biosimilars environment and new COVID and supply chain challenges that may affect approvals and speed to market. Speakers receive free access to the conference and build their thought leadership and brand in the pharmaceutical and health care industry. Learn more about speaker requirements and options.
