The OSBA Capital Conference and Trade Show is going virtual!
Due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and state of Ohio regulations, OSBA is announcing that the 2020 Capital Conference and Trade Show will be held as a virtual event this year.
For 64 years, OSBA’s Capital Conference and Trade Show has been the premier education event for all who play a role in education in Ohio. This was not an easy decision, but concerns about the public health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors and presenters led all parties to conclude that moving to a virtual conference was the safe and responsible action.
This decision also was guided by a survey of more than 2,700 members who attended the 2019 Capital Conference; presenters selected for the 2020 conference; and current Trade Show exhibitors. Of the members surveyed, fewer than 50% said they would attend an in-person event, and 22% said they were undecided about attending the event in November.
While we look forward to a time when we can safely hold the OSBA Capital Conference in a face-to-face environment, the OSBA team is exercising its creativity and imagination to deliver a virtual Capital Conference and Trade Show that will exceed your expectations! Details are being finalized and will be released in August. Visit the Conference FAQ page for updated information.
