Calling OAMES Associate Members! Exhibit & Sponsor Opportunities Now Available for OAMES 2022 Annual Meeting & Exhibition Nov. 1-2

Sales Open to the Public Mid-August


As a strategic player in the Ohio HME market, OAMES associate members are invaluable! We are looking forward to OAMES 41st Annual Meeting & Exhibition this fall with two enjoyable days of networking, education and fun and hope you’ll join us! 

This year's theme "Don't Call it a Comeback - Great Service Never Stopped" speaks to the invaluable role of the HME community:  our providers as well as our business partners in distribution, manufacturing and service.  The past two years have been unprecedented and we are leaner, stronger and wiser living through it.  The conference is the centerpiece of our partnership to reconnect with industry contacts and develop new ones! 

We’re off to a great start with our exhibit hall!  We have 18 of the 28 tables pre-sold in OAMES 2022 associate membership packages.  We’ve reached out via email to everyone who pre-purchased their table to select their spot but still need to hear from a few of you!  If you pre-purchased your table in your 2022 dues/sponsor package earlier this year and haven’t yet picked your table, be sure to email Victoria Fastenau right away to lock in your location! 

For associate members who have NOT purchased their exhibit table and/or sponsorship, NOW is the time to sign up before we open sales to the general public the week of August 15.
