Harness the Power of the Network.

The LTEN (formerly SPBT) Annual Conference is the only training conference designed entirely for pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device and diagnostic learning and development professionals. No manufacturing, aerospace, IT or automotive trainers here — just you and hundreds of your life sciences training peers.

This year’s learning event brings you inspiring keynotes, dynamic workshops and ample networking opportunities to help you sharpen skills and boost career goals. Nearly 700 training and education professionals, industry thought-leaders and leading suppliers convene just once a year to drive the life science training agenda forward.
