Call for Speakers Opens for VGM Heartland

Speaker proposals for the 2018 edition of the annual industry event are due Nov. 22.

The VGM Group has opened the call for speakers for it’s the 17th edition of its annual Heartland Conference, which is slated for June 19-21, 2018 at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in Waterloo, Iowa.

Conference organizers are looking for presenters to fill more than a dozen education tracks on topics such as business management, retail sales, sleep and respiratory, rehab, operations, sales and marketing, home access and regulatory issues.     

“Each year we search for dynamic speakers to add to our pool of talented presenters willing to share their content and best business practices to our guests,” said Sarah Conger, VGM’s director of Events and Heartland Conference chairperson.

Themed “Where Community Meets Opportunity,” the 2018 edition of the event’s three-day conference gives presenters the opportunity to share their expertise but also to attend networking and social events.

“Speaking at Heartland Conference is more than sharing your expertise with attendees,” Conger said. “It’s an opportunity for one-on-one time with our members and vendors, other presenters, as well as VGM associates.”   

Speaker proposals are due Nov. 22. Interested speakers should visit to complete the online form, or contact Heartland Education Chair Jill Blaser at or (855) 755-6922.
