In 2023, due to the increased potential for inclement weather, the IAOM Conference Host Committee decided to organize a curling outing in lieu of the usual golf tournament. The event was extremely successful with a maximum number of 90 would-be curlers registering for the event.
Once the 2024 Host Committee decides what activity it will organize, information will be posted here.
Thank you to our 2023 Curling Sponsors!
Explore Salt Lake City!
The Guest program is a great way to get to know others who are accompanying someone to Salt Lake City for the conference. The group spends time visiting points of interest in the city while the educational sessions and expo continue inside the conference venue.

IAOM Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony
IAOM will honor and pay tribute to its award recipients at the Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony on the final evening of the conference, April 18.
It is sure to be a memorable evening. This year’s celebration will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City.
The evening will start at 6 p.m., with a reception. During the reception, the IMEF Silent Auction will still be open – so those who are trying to secure the winning bid on one of the amazing items up for auction will need to attend for sure. The live auction will follow dinner where several fantastic items will be up for grabs!
The reception will be followed by what promises to be a delicious dinner, prepared by the hotel’s talented chefs. The evening will feature a program that includes the passing of the gavel, presentation of IAOM awards and anniversary celebrations.
Advance tickets are $115 and may be purchased through IAOM during registration. Tickets purchased after the early-registration deadline of March 17, will be $125.
IAOM’s Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony is always a highlight of IAOM’s Annual Conference & Expo. Be sure to attend to see who will receive this year’s industry awards.
