VGM has announced the schedule for its annual Heartland Conference, which takes place June 10-12 in Waterloo, Iowa.
The 18th installment of the two-day, members-only conference and networking event will offer education in areas such as retail, rehab, marketing, accessibility, compliance and leadership, along with some new offerings.
“The Heartland 2019 schedule will be fairly familiar to those who have attended in past, but with quite a few updates and new additions,” said Jill Blaser, design and development manager at VGM Education, who oversees Heartland’s educational offerings. “One reason for this is that we wanted Heartland to be future-focused this year.”
To that end, VGM asked each Heartland session speaker to dedicate some time in their presentations to discuss how their session’s topic might impact the industry in the next five years. Additionally, the 2019 Heartland Conference will feature 11 panel sessions, which is more than twice the number of panels hosted during the 2018 edition of the event.
Other new features to the 2019 Heartland include pre-conference sessions on retail and wound care, and education tracks focused on topics such as specialty markets and business leadership and people strategy.
Registration for the show is open.
