OH2018 Meet & Greet Costume Party: Prizes, Photos & Fun!

October 24, 2018

It has become a favorite tradition at the ObesityHelp National Conferences that Friday evening is the Meet & Greet Costume Party. The OH2018 Meet & Greet Costume Party was a huge hit and attendees had a blast! The Meet & Greet Costume Parties are always fun and a special time for attendees to re-connect with friends and make new ones. What you'll take away from the party are celebrations, friendships, fun, and being together as a community.

OH2018 Meet & Greet Costume Party

To start off the Meet & Greet Costume Party, attendees entered the ballroom through a tunnel decorated with creepy, ghoulish clowns and a couple of scary live figures lurking around the corners. There was a costume contest with some of the most creative costumes ever, Pixel Photo Booth captured the fun while attendees danced to tunes provided by a DJ.

Before the 2018 ObesityHelp National Conference ended, attendees were already planning their costumes for OH2019!

A special shout out of thanks to our Platinum Sponsor, A Lighter Me, for making this party possible. This was their 5th year in a row as a Platinum Sponsor!

We're very excited to share the photos from the OH2018 Meet & Greet Costume Party! This album is jam-packed with photos of the costumes, new and long-term friendships, and of the Friday night Pixel Photo Booth pictures.

We really enjoyed being able to sponsor the costume party this year, it is great to see everyone’s smiling faces while rocking their awesome costumes!  The costume party is a great way to kick off the conference and we are happy to be able to be a part of it. We look forward to seeing everyone’s creative and amazing costumes next year! ~ Zach Johnston, General Manager, A Lighter Me

The Meet & Greet Costume Party breaks the ice and lets you meet new people in a fun, non-intimidating environment. It’s just easier to get to know each other when you’re dressed in silly costumes. ~ Yelena Kibasova

I dressed up for the costume party because I love Halloween. To me, it is fun to throw on a costume and be someone else for a while and make people laugh and have fun. I was super excited when I won. ~ Darren Crist
