The convention program is currently under construction and will be available for viewing on the convention section of the R2 website in early February. The program will include panels, workshops, special focus, and marathon meetings. There will also be keynote speakers at the opening Friday night and closing Sunday morning ceremonies, both of which will be available to virtual and all in-person attendees. A bonus for our in-person attendees will be the Saturday evening dinner/speaker meeting and Sunday morning breakfast/speaker meeting. Meal tickets must be purchased for these two speaker events.
The OA R2 Convention will take place at the recently remodeled Hilton Sacramento Arden West hotel, where you can enjoy a comfortable room at a discounted rate of $140.00/night (+tax).
Speaking of money, the intention of this bulletin is to share how convention prices are determined. Money can be a difficult topic, but we want to be transparent and provide information about how the prices for rooms and meals are determined.

2024 R2 Convention Information Bulletin Number 1
Welcome to first in a series of Information Bulletins devoted exclusively to the 2024 Overeaters Anonymous Region 2 Convention. Region 2 covers California, Hawaii, the Reno/Tahoe area of Nevada, and all of Mexico.
The 2024 Convention will be held in SUNNY SACRAMENTO, CA, July 12th through 14th, 2024. If you’re not able to travel to Sacramento – fear not. There will be a virtual component to this year’s convention! But seriously, wouldn’t it be grand to see everyone in person?!?
Curious about Why Region 2 Hosts a convention every year? Well, let me tell you:
The purpose is three-fold: First, it’s to encourage unity within the region, and throughout OA; Second, the convention program is designed to enhance everyone’s recovery, whether someone is brand new to OA or a seasoned veteran; and third, it is the Region’s main fundraiser that allows us to carry the message of hope and recovery from the compulsive eating.
There will be workshops, speakers, and marathon meetings throughout the weekend, lead by a diverse group of speakers who carry the message of recovery, and live by the OA principles. And, of course, we love to have fun, so check out our hospitality room for fun activities and, on Saturday night, put on those dancing shoes and enjoy a live performance from a popular, local rock and pop cover band! This - and so much more - is waiting for YOU.
The OA R2 Convention, Sacramento Style, will take place at the recently-remodeled Hilton Sacramento Arden West hotel, where you can enjoy a comfortable room at a discounted rate. Details about registering for the convention and booking a room can be found on the oaR2.org website.
