“At VGM’s Heartland Conference, we don’t just bring together industry experts; we create a vibrant ecosystem where knowledge meets innovation,” said Lindy Tentinger, president of VGM & Associates. “From billing and reimbursement to complex rehab technology, our event covers it all. We hope you plan to join us for two days of unlimited networking opportunities, top-notch education, and a dash of midwestern hospitality.”

VGM Heartland Conference brings together industry experts from across the country to discuss topics related to the home medical equipment (HME) industry, such as billing and reimbursement, regulatory and audits, business leadership and people strategy, business operations, complex rehab technology, sales and marketing, respiratory, and specialty markets including women’s health. Registrants can choose from over 60 educational sessions and panel discussions to attend and earn contact hours/CEUs. 

Heartland is also popular for featuring numerous opportunities for networking and fun. New this year is a Partner Connections speed-networking event intended for participants to establish new connections, explore potential collaborations, and exchange valuable insights with manufacturers and service partners. Additional networking opportunities include the Party on the Plaza kick-off event, Connections and Coasters at Lost Island Amusement Park, and Dancing Through the Decades at the VGM Farm, all intended for attendees to forge new connections while enjoying the famous VGM and midwestern hospitality.
