Sponsorship and Exhibiting Opportunities




Why should you sponsor?

The Ohio Aviation Association is the voice of Ohio airports that contribute to the economic vibrancy and well-being of the state, the birthplace of aviation.  The OAA has brought success to our airports over the last few years as we worked with ODOT to increase state funding.  We continue to voice your needs to legislators while watching out for legislation that could be detrimental to Ohio’s airport environment.

But we offer more than lobbying efforts to our members. We offer the value of communication, engagement, and education. We keep an eye on the future while also offering every day needs to our members such as a place to post job positions, RFP/Qs, etc. We are a non-profit organization and we need your continued support to maintain the current momentum and take all our members to a higher altitude! And did we forget to mention...networking, networking, networking?

Each year, the Ohio Aviation Association announces the many sponsorship opportunities available for Annual Conference that both support OAA and help your organization.   Some opportunities are limited, so respond early to ensure you get the visibility you want and deserve! Help us tell your story by supporting us in one or more opportunities!  

Annual Conference Sponsorship and Exhibiting Opportunities

The Annual Conference of the Ohio Aviation Association is held in the spring each year. It is typically held in Columbus, Ohio. In 2018, we used a new venue, the Hilton Columbus/Polaris and feedback was positive! We will be returning to the Hilton Columbus/Polaris for 2019!  

In 2018, OAA had just over 260 attendees at the Annual Conference. We anticipate that number to increase this year.  While the conference program details continue to be refined, the opportunities for education and fun will be greater than before!  An Annual Conference Sponsorship is an ideal way to stand out as an industry leader supporting aviation in Ohio.  OAA Annual Sponsors receive high visibility and unparalleled access to OAA members and leaders.  We offer varying opportunities to fit every budget. 
Exhibiting at the OAA Annual Conference gives your organization access to airport management, engineering consultants, small businesses, direct service providers, contractors and other professionals in aviation. OAA is excited to keep the conference to the Hilton Columbus/ Polaris for 2019 which provides a great space for mingling and for exhibitors to be in view during breakfasts and breaks.  Your organization’s name will also be listed in the program and scrolling announcements. We have exhibiting available at member and non-member rates. There are special rates available for non-profits as well.
