How are you monitoring the Coronavirus situation?

The health and safety of the VGM Heartland community of attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff is our highest priority. VGM Heartland is closely monitoring the latest government recommendations and announcements related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact on our conference. VGM has a pandemic task force assembled that will advise us to recommendations as Heartland 2021 nears.
