Why join DCAT?

DCAT is the only association that brings the pharmaceutical industry’s buyers and sellers together, providing services, programs and events designed to support the business development objectives of its membership.

Programs and events give member representatives the chance to learn new industry information and trends, as well as to make important contacts, dialogue with counterparts at other member companies and build relationships with current and potential customers.

DCAT’s most notable event is DCAT Week and the DCAT Annual Dinner held each March at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. If your company is planning or thinking of attending DCAT Week, then a DCAT membership will give you access to valuable discounts, expand your business development and networking opportunities AND support the organization that makes this important industry event possible.

Other annual programs include Sharp Sourcing and the DCAT Annual Golf Outing, a key funding vehicle for DCAT's science education initiatives.
