OML Annual Conference Exhibiting
The 68th Annual Ohio Municipal League Conference and Exhibit Show is fast approaching. This year the conference will be held at the Renaissance Hotel, Columbus, Ohio. The conference will be held October 23rd ~ 25th with one day dedicated to our exhibit show. That day will be Thursday, October 24th.
We once again have facilities to invite vendors to join us at our conference as part of our product exhibit. Setup for the exhibits will be from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23rd. The exhibit area will be secured Wednesday evening by private security provided by the League. The show officially will open at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 24th with a continental breakfast and end with a reception for all of our conference attendees and exhibitors. Exhibits must remain intact until the closing of the show at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 24th. No security will be available after the closing of the show.
As always, we assign spaces on a first come, first serve basis. The sooner we receive your contract and registration form with payment, the better the chance that you will be assigned your preferred space at the show. Please note, contracts and registration forms emailed or faxed will not be assigned a booth until payment is received.

- An 6'x10' Space
- 8’ x 3’ flame proof back drapery in red, white & blue
