Pharmacy Study Tour

This is a unique opportunity to benefit your business, learning direct from Medici Capital and Frank Sirianni's expertise in the Pharmacy Industry. Guest speakers on topical pharmacy business issues will also join the tour.The Pharmacy Study Tour seeks to expand your horizons and business frontiers by providing you with fresh ideas for your pharmacy. Speakers and peer-to-peer discussions are designed to provide you with the maximum possible business improvements on your return to Australia.


St Anton’s broad appeal has expanded along with the Arlberg ski area, which is now one of the six largest ski areas in the world and offers skiing for all abilities. Off the slopes, you’ll find a wide range of shopping and dining with plenty of luxury/gourmet choices, excellent leisure facilities and a pedestrianised centre in the invariably snowy village.

St Anton is steeped in history as it is one of the few ski areas that can claim to be where it all began: the Arlberg Technique of downhill skiing, which developed there over a century ago, is basically the style we’re all skiing now. 

The pedigree of St Anton as a premier ski destination is difficult for other European ski resorts to rival. St Anton is a sizeable Austrian ski resort which is particularly popular with expert skiers, families and intermediates.

Our Accommodation

Our boutique accommodation combines the best of both worlds, Austrian tradition and hospitality with modern style. This contemporary ski hotel offers ski in/ski out access and is located close to all that St Anton has to offer.

The owners, third generation professional and champion skiers from St Anton, will help immerse you in the world of winter sports and well-being, and experience the Arlberg at its best.

The conference will focus on:

  • To create an environment for forward thinking and practice development.
  • Identify and minimise risks in your business.
  • The exchange of ideas and new business initiatives among the group.
  • Exposure to culturally different retail and service environments with a view to understanding new initiatives and opportunities in pharmacy practice, marketing and general retailing.
  • Identify ‘inputs’ for your own pharmacy strategic plan for implementation on your return to Australia.

With conference sessions held in the afternoon, there is plenty of time to network with other delegates and speakers, as well as explore all that St Anton and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Topics will include:

  • The Australian Pharmacy Landscape
    • 6th Community Pharmacy Agreement & Beyond
    • Pharmacy Reviews and Deregulation
  • Building A Strong and Sustainable Business
  • Pharmacy Values, Return and Prices
  • Pharmacy Technology and Innovation
  • Achieving the Best Result When Selling Your Pharmacy
  • International Pharmacy Remuneration and Service Models - lessons for your pharmacy

CPD Credits

With qualified presenters and an interactive format for the conference sessions, Pharmacy Study Tour is designed to assist you in developing your leadership and management competency in pharmacy business.

The conference sessions provide valuable knowledge and peer-to-peer discussions which we encourage you to implement in your business upon your return. This could be a great opportunity to satisfy your CPD planning by participating in the conference sessions and completing the associated assessments.
