EW Opens Focus Conference 2022 Registration

The annual educational event for providers of women’s health products and services will run Feb. 5-7 in Clearwater Beach, Fla. Nominations open for Ruth Addison Award of Excellence.

Essentially Women has opened registration for its annual Focus Conference, which returns to an in-person format running Feb. 5-7 at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater Beach, Fla.

A division of VGM & Associates, Essentially Women is a member service organization for providers that serve the needs of post-mastectomy, compression, maternity and women’s health patients. The annual Focus Conference offers seminars, keynote speaker, networking and continuing education opportunities, and is open to women’s health providers from EW and VGM.

“We are excited to host our conference in person again,” said Nikki Jensen, vice president of EW. “Not only is Focus Conference Essentially Women’s and the women’s health industry’s premier education event, it is a place where our members can network, share best practices, and just relax and have some with each other, which is much needed after the challenges of the last 18 months.”

New for this year, attendees can participate in Retail Round Tables and a Vendor Connections event.

“The Retail Round Tables will be a great opportunity for our attendees to learn more retail strategies,” Jensen said. “The Vendor Connections Event is kind of like speed dating, but with our vendor-partners. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet vendors in a fast-paced environment, giving them the opportunity to discover new product lines, grow existing product lines, or find new business opportunities.”
