About the MDA Conference

About the MDA Conference

2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the umbrella association transforming the lives of people affected by muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and related neuromuscular diseases (NMDs) through innovations in science and innovations in care.

Join us as we recognize this important milestone and claim your place among thousands driving transformation at the NMD community’s premier professional event, the upcoming 2020 MDA Clinical & Scientific Conference.

The conference, the largest of its kind, highlights unprecedented research advancements and clinical achievements in NMDs. For exhibitors and sponsors, it offers unparalleled engagement with world leaders and ground-breaking innovators in NMDs. This must-not-miss opportunity will showcase your products and services, help you build strong relationships with key influencers and stakeholders, and demonstrate your commitment to MDA and therapeutic progress.

Excitement about the coming event is already building. In the last few years, progress has been significant. New treatments for NMDs have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including disease-modifying gene therapies. With more therapies in the pipeline, the conference will be buzzing with highly engaged and newly energized speakers and participants. In 2020, MDA is excited to be working with our Scientific Planning Committee and Clinical Education Committee to deliver unparalleled content that is timely and relevant to our professional community. We look forward to you joining us.

The 2020 MDA Clinical & Scientific Conference will be held March 22–25, 2020, at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. Be with us as we recognize seven decades of commitment to NMD research and clinical development.

Help us realize our vision of transforming care through innovation. Don’t miss out on what will be not only the defining event in NMD this year but also one of your biggest opportunities to stand with MDA and stand out in your field.

More than 1,250 members of the NMD community attended the 2019 MDA Clinical & Scientific Conference.
