VGM Calls for Heartland Conference Speakers

Submissions for the June 14-16, 2021 event are due by Dec. 18. The 20th anniversary edition of the conference will feature eight education tracks.

VGM Group Inc. is calling on prospective speakers to submit proposals for its 20th annual Heartland Conference, slated for June 14-16, 2021, in Waterloo, Iowa.

Speakers must submit their proposals at by Dec. 18. The conference will feature eight education tracks: business leadership and management, retail, sleep and respiratory, rehab, operations, sales and marketing, home accessibility, technology and regulatory.

“Our speakers are essential to the Heartland Conference,” Heartland Co-Chair Jill Blaser said. “Not only do they ensure attendees leave each session equipped to grow professionally while earning CEUs, when a speaker shares their best practices, their experience and their know-how, we make everyone in our industry stronger.”

Because the 2021 edition marks a special anniversary for the event, Heartland’s organizers have special changes in the works, Blaser hinted.

“We’re building an especially robust offering this year, with both in-person and virtual sessions so everyone can experience Heartland’s one-of-a-kind education program,” Mahler said, adding that speakers not only get a chance to share their expertise, but also attend Heartland’s networking events.

“There’s no shortage of opportunity for presenters at the Heartland Conference,” said Mahler. “It’s the perfect place to bring visibility and quality leads to their business. But, more than that, it’s the community — it’s the sharing of ideas and inspiration that lets you make a real impact on the industry as a whole.”

Prospective speakers with additional questions can contact Kayla Mahler at or Jill Blaser via email at, or call (855) 755-6922.
