Participation in International Conferences are ideal channels for education, technology transfer, personal information enrichment and networking . However, because of its global nature there is no international police power strong enough nor capable enough to protect individuals from conference scams due to border issues, territorial limitations and foreign relations. This is evidenced by the proliferation of internet scams all over the world. Another example is piracy which despite international effort has accelerated in recent years.
Participating in an international conference is not without risk basically on the financial side. It is the same as buying an item from an online store.
It is with this in mind that we raise the issue, Are all conferences legitimate? Goingtomeet.com has a conference database of over 50, 000 events. How do we protect ourselves from shams who postulate as conference organizers and then run away with your money. Let me suggest a few ways and you too may add your own ideas and experience to help others avoid such frauds.
International Conferences is a way for less developed countries to approximate more developed nations in different fields of endeavour. As I moderate conferences, I come across organizers (usually in the academics) who give special consideration for participants from less developed countries or provide travel allowance to students (post graduate) which is highly commendable.
Let us scrutinize a conference as closely as possible to determine its authenticity. Attending a conference may provide us the needed exposure in our research, or additional insight for our business or …a nightmare!.
The 2009 14th Annual Summit on the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program Announces Former HHS Secretary Tom Daschle as Keynote SpeakerMonday, May 25th, 2009
New York, NY, May 26, 2009 â€“ IIR, the world’s leading knowledge and skills transfer company, is pleased to announce the former Senator Tom Daschle as keynote speaker of the 14th Annual Summit on the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program, September 21-23, 2009, Chicago, IL.
One of the most influential men in Washington today, Tom Daschle is a former senator whose lifelong passion and commitment to public service and healthcare reform is undeniable. As Senate majority and minority leader from 1994 2005 and the architect of President Obama’s healthcare plan, he is an outspoken advocate for reform, and a well-connected voice between the healthcare industry and Washington policy-makers. His recent book, Critical: What We Can Do About the Healthcare Crisis, offers exciting new solutions on changing America’s healthcare system which provides the framework for Obama’s plan. Senator Daschle is also actively involved in the Bipartisan Policy Center, with Senators Howard Baker, Bob Dole, and George Mitchell, and in both the public and private sector, remains dedicated to finding common ground between conservatives and liberals on the issues that impact us all.
Anne Reel, the Director of IIR’s 14th Annual Medicaid Drug Rebate Summit, says, the pharmaceutical manufacturers are keenly interested in how the current political landscape will change, especially how these changes affect Medicaid reimbursements. Tom Daschle can help the manufacturers understand the new solutions to changing America’s healthcare system and provide the framework for Obama’s Plan. The manufacturers have devoted more internal resources to adapt to new MDRP processes resulting from the DRA and are incurring increased costs due to pending litigations and planning compliance strategies. With insights gathered from our Advisory Board and intensive market research, our annual three-day summit continues to be the top destination for key pharmaceutical manufacturers, state Medicaid professionals, attorneys, experienced consultants, government agency representatives, enforcement agencies, legislative and policy groups.
