White Post, VA - The Laboratory Products Association (LPA) will hold its 2021 Annual Meeting on November 6-9 at The Naples Grande Resort in Naples, Florida. Attendees can look forward to a wide array of expert speakers, as well as participate in exclusive networking opportunities with senior level executives while gaining informed and relevant data on market trends and topics.

This year’s theme is Pivoting Towards Progress and there will be several keynote speakers addressing steps members can take to continue to thrive safely, both personally and for their companies. 

Frank Abagnale will open the meeting on Monday, November 8 and take members behind the scenes to show how simple strategies can thwart today’s cyber criminals with his Cybercrime, Identity Theft, and Scams presentation. 

Connor Lokar of ITR Economics Group will present a Domestic & Global Economic Update. 

Following a networking luncheon, Rob Smith and Patrick Rose will provide a Government & Regulatory Affairs Update and will share their expertise in changing regulations, government spending and issues that directly affect LPA members and more. Afterwards, members will enjoy extended free time in the afternoon to make up for lost engagement time.

Opening on Tuesday morning will be Joshua Waldman, PhD, research associate for Cleveland Research Company who will provide a Life Sciences Outlook & Forecast. 

Closing the annual meeting will be Captain Sandy Yawn, Charting Your Own Course - Despite the Obstacles, whose survivorship story, blended with her below deck leadership escapades, makes for a wildly entertaining keynote experience that will leave members reinvigorated to tackle those tough obstacles.
