Registration Opens for Heartland 2022

Published in Member Communities on February 21, 2022

Registration for VGM’s 21st anniversary Heartland Conference is now open. The educational event will be held in person June 13-15 in Waterloo, Iowa.

Special Early Bird pricing is available to those who register prior to April 15. Passes are all-inclusive and provide access to every educational opportunity Heartland has to offer, including four pre-conference sessions. This year’s passes also cover meals, entertainment, and access to the hottest products and business solutions offered by VGM's vast network of vendors inside a newly renovated exhibit hall.

“Heartland has always been about bringing people together to be part of something bigger—a community. That’s why we’re so excited to have Heartland 2022 live and in person again,” said Clint Geffert, president of VGM & Associates. “Each year, we work hard to make Heartland even better than the last. With our outstanding lineup of speakers, education, and social events, Heartland’s 21st year is going to be one of the best experiences yet.”

The VGM Heartland Conference brings together industry experts from across the country to discuss topics related to the home medical equipment (HME) industry, such as respiratory, accessibility, regulatory and audits, rehab, operations, sales and marketing, billing and reimbursement, retail, and more. Educational sessions offer more than 60 options for registrants to earn contact hours. Attendees can earn an estimated 14.75 contact hours/CEUs this year. They can also attend panel discussions, engage with vendors, and attend community dinners and other networking events.

However, the education isn’t the only reason to attend. Heartland features numerous opportunities for networking and fun. This year will feature award-winning entertainer and igniter of untapped potential, keynote speaker Devin Henderson, HME community dinners, the iconic Heartland hog roast with fireworks, and a special event for first-time attendees.

“Heartland has something for every HME professional. There’s going to be so much to learn, see, and experience,” said Jill Blaser, Heartland Conference chair. “We can’t wait to welcome our members back and show off our community’s recently renovated hotel and convention center.”
