Families and Children

Families are an essential part of the independent pharmacy community, and we’re delighted to welcome them to McKesson ideaShare 2024!

Many McKesson ideaShare attendees make the show a family affair, and there’s no shortage of things to do in New Orleans. As for the show itself, we’ve put together a couple of options that might make sense for your family.

  • Youth Conference Pass (Ages 6-12) – $649: Bringing the kids? Children under the age of 13 can also get the full McKesson ideaShare experience for a fraction of the price! This pass provides access to all educational sessions, learning experiences, expo hall, meals, and the Final Night Party featuring Harry Connick, Jr! The only restriction is that this pass is not permitted to attend continuing education (CE) sessions.
  • Youth Conference Pass (Ages 5 and under) – Free: The same pass with the same benefits, only free for children age 5 and under.
  • KiddieCorp Olympics – $50/Day Per Child: We have partnered with KiddieCorp, a premier provider of children’s programs for events, to offer daily childcare for children ages 3 through 17. Children must be potty-trained to take part in the KiddieCorp Olympics.
KiddieCorp Olympics

You are cordially invited to the KiddieCorp Olympics this summer! Sports decorations will set the mood while we form teams, and then we’ll head over to Creation Station to design our team’s logo and banners.

When we are worn out from all the fun, we’ll create some lanyard key chains, friendship bracelets, and more fun crafts to take home.

Who is KiddieCorp?

KiddieCorp has been providing quality child care for the past 38 years. Their mission is to provide your children with a safe, comfortable, and fun experience during McKesson ideaShare.

KiddieCorp is in its 38th year of providing high-quality children’s programs and youth services to conventions, trade shows, and special events. We take caring for your children very seriously. KiddieCorp has enjoyed a long-time partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has helped to establish KiddieCorp as a premier provider of event children’s program services.

KiddieCorp’s goal is to provide your children with a comfortable, safe, and happy experience. Their staff-to-child ratios are high to ensure that every child feels special (1:5 for children ages 3 through 5 years old; 1:7 for children ages 6 through 12 years old; 1:10 for children ages 13 through 17 years old). KiddieCorp team members are selected according to their integrity, experience, education, and enthusiasm.
