Be a part of the largest education-related trade show in the nation

TS061113-6822Nearly 10,000 school district leaders are expected to attend the 2015 OSBA Capital Conference and Trade Show in Columbus. The event, held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, is the second-largest education convention in the nation and boasts the largest education-related trade show in the U.S.

Attendees include public school board members, superintendents, treasurers, business managers, curriculum directors, facility managers, athletic directors, principals and other school officials. Year after year, attendees rate the Trade Show as one of the best features of the Capital Conference. The number and variety of exhibitors make it a one-stop shop for all the goods, tools and services their school districts need.

In addition, exhibitors rate the conference as a premier event due to the foot trafic and postitive leads they collect. Below are comments from prior exhibitors:

“Given our previous higher education clients, we thought it would be a natural step to explore opportunities within the Ohio K-12 schools. We were very pleased with the warm welcome and steady flow of people interested in document management. We look forward to attending next year!” — Lisa Saltsman, account executive, Coleman Data Solutions


“We have been exhibiting at the OSBA Trade Show for over 10 years. During this time, we have exhibited at more than 200 other trade shows, and have found the OSBA show to be the very best! They encourage interaction between the vendors and attendees, and create an environment where those interactions are productive and helpful for all participants. This show is always worth our investment.” — Roland Tokarski, president & chief operating officer, The Quandel Group Inc.

Exhibitors also have opportunities to market to attendees or sponsor conference events for greater visibility.
