HEARTLAND UPDATE! Date Change for 2018 Conference

Posted on in Heartland

Several weeks ago, we announced a date change for the 2018 Heartland Conference. It’s been changed again—this time it sticks.

The 17th annual Heartland Conference will be held June 19-21, 2018. That’s Tuesday through Thursday, a change from the event’s normal Monday-Thursday format.

“We decided to move next year’s conference to later in June to accommodate other industry conferences and graduation seasons around the country,” said Clint Geffert, president of VGM & Associates. “And, we decided to shorten the conference by a day in response to feedback from participants. They overwhelmingly feel Heartland is the best educational conference in HME and felt they were getting the education they needed in a shorter time frame.”

While the specific activities for next year’s conference are in the planning stages, we can share the following with you now:

Tuesday, June 19: Education sessions and Hog Roast
Wednesday, June 20: Exhibit Hall opening, education sessions, and Gala
Thursday, June 21: Half day of education sessions

Stay tuned for more details.

Heartland Conference 2018 again will be held at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in VGM’s hometown of Waterloo, Iowa. We’ll have more news coming about the convention center and the adjacent Ramada Inn, too. Both venues, which have been around for more than 40 years, will be receiving much-needed face lifts during the coming year.

So, mark your calendars for June 19-20, 2018, for the next Heartland Conference.
