Let the Journey Begin – OAC Releases Pricing Information, Registration Date Opening and Theme
for the 2015 Your Weight Matters National Convention
Tampa, Fla. – Today, the OAC released new and exciting information on its 4th Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention, including registration pricing details, the official opening date of registration, this year’s Convention theme and much more! This year’s Convention, Our Journey – Restore. Refresh. Renew., is set for August 13-16 in San Antonio, Texas and will offer the everyday individual concerned with weight and health the latest evidence-based strategies to help them in their journey.
Registration for YWM2015 will officially open on March 23, offering a variety of affordable options starting at just $30/day for One-day Registrations, and just $95 for the Full Convention Package (early-bird discount savings). “One of the most important factors for someone interested in attending the Convention is the cost of registration. We listened to our attendees and kept the registration cost the same low price as last year. We want everyone interested in this event to be able to be a part of it,” said Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO.
In 2014, the OAC Convention broke its attendance record with more than 500 attendees from more than 40 different states throughout the nation. The Your Weight Matters Convention has quickly become known throughout the country as the place to be to learn more about topics such as weight, nutrition, exercise, emotional issues and more from the most sought-after experts in the healthcare field. “Throughout the past three years, Convention speakers have truly been the who’s who in science and research, such as Dr. Arya Sharma, Dr. Michelle May, Dr. Gary Foster, Dr. James Levine, Merrill Littleberry, LCSW, LCDC, CCM, CI-CPT; and many others. There simply is no other event providing this level of education delivered by the biggest names in healthcare,” said Michelle Vicari, OAC Convention Committee Chair.
Located just steps away from the world famous San Antonio Riverwalk, YWM2015 will take place at the beautiful San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. The Rivercenter hotel is a magnificent 38 story hotel on the River Walk and the OAC has secured a competitive room rate of only $125/night. “I have personally had the pleasure of staying at the host hotel, and it is absolutely amazing. Attendees will feel very comfortable as we learn more about our weight and how it’s impacting our health. ‘Our Journey – Restore. Refresh. Renew.’ is the perfect theme for this year’s event. We want attendees to join with us on this journey. First-time attendees will be captivated by the level of evidence-based education presented, and those who are joining us again know that the OAC does not miss a single detail when it comes to providing attendees with an overall experience of the highest quality,” said Ted Kyle, RPh, MBA, OAC Chairman.
