This year’s OAMES Annual Meeting & Exhibition is shaping up to be one of the best!  Thank you to our presenting sponsors Compass Health and OxyGo!

Here are the top FOUR reasons YOU need to attend:

We have a SOLD-OUT exhibit hall (after increasing our space!) featuring 31 industry vendors and OAMES’ first-ever Medicaid Managed Care Pavilion with Ohio’s Next Generation Medicaid managed care plans. Click here to view our full list of 2023 exhibitors and sponsors.  Thank you to these great organizations for joining us at this year’s conference and supporting Ohio’s HME community!
  2. EDUCATION! In addition to the exceptional networking, we have an unbeatable line-up of informative programs including many of your industry favorites, rising talent and an invigorating, closing keynote by Jeff Alt on Thursday. Jeff is sponsored by the VGM Group and local to Ohio.  His expert advice, adventures and books have been featured on ESPN, CNN-Radio,, and many more news outlets!  General sessions will cover the hottest state and federal topics, offer business strategies and address the latest operational issues your company is facing heading into 2024.
  3. FUN! Join us Wednesday evening for OAMES’ version of Octoberfest at Hofbräuhaus Columbus!  Attendees will be treated to authentic, award-winning Bavarian biers and food favorites next door to the conference center.  It’s included in your registration so no additional cost.  Weather permitting we’ll enjoy the outdoor Biergarten, otherwise the indoor Bier Hall.
  4. COMMUNITY SUPPORT! OAMES is pleased to recognize this year’s Give-Back recipient at the conference:  Sunshine Communities based in Maumee, Ohio.  Sunshine’s mission is to create community among people with developmental disabilities. Check out their full story here.  Sunshine staff members Markie Miller and Lori Richard will join us on Thursday, Oct. 19, for a brief presentation to raise awareness about their incredible organization’s history and inspiring purpose today! Click here for information about giving.
