Behind the Scenes: SAMPS Conference Planning

April 10, 2018

The program team has put together an amazing agenda for the annual SAMPS conference which will be held October 24-26, 2018 in South San Francisco. The conference theme taps into San Francisco Bay Area digital technology and the successful application to the life science industry. How does it all come together? The program team, consisting of over 30 volunteers, meet regularly to discuss ideas, themes and potential talks. Then work begins to schedule a stellar group of speakers and panelists who can help you understand how a digital approach can help Sales, Marketing, and Commercial Leaders. Register now.

There will be a wide variety of speakers and sessions at the conference panels including one featuring marketing executives from small, medium, and large life science companies selling instruments and consumables. These leaders will explain the right mix of marketing channels to be successful.

There will also be sessions describing how artificial intelligence is increasing the effectiveness of sales and marketing efforts. And you don’t want to miss the panel featuring sales and marketing professionals from various stages in their careers discussing the hot button issues facing life science professionals and how they navigate them.

If you are a vendor supplying products or services to the life science industry, particularly digital offerings, there are still sponsorship opportunities and exhibitor spaces available for  the 2018 conference.

David Weber and Erik Claussen, conference co-chairs will be attending as will Joanne Dimitrakopoulos, head of the program team and Keith Osiewicz, program team member for the last two years. Register for this is a happy hour event held in the hotel bar, and let us know you are coming.


SAMPS, Sales And Marketing Professionals in Scientific research, is the first and only organization dedicated to sales and marketing professionals within the life sciences.

The association’s goal is to serve its members who work in commercial roles for life science products and services companies and associated businesses, globally.
SAMPS was previously named ACP-LS. We feel that SAMPS more clearly describes the membership, and will form a better foundation from which to expand this membership globally.
