Why exhibit at the 2019 OLA-WLA Conference?

  • Meet many new prospects from all around Oregon and Washington. We expect attendance of approximately 800 attendees from academic, public, school, and special libraries.
  • Talk to buyers. Many attendees control buying or influence purchasing decisions.
  • Find new customers who do not attend national conferences.
  • Enjoy an active show schedule with over 20 hours of exclusive exhibit time – with refreshments, receptions, and raffles in the hall. 

Space is limited, and we anticipate selling out. Priority for space assignments will be based on date of receipt of Exhibitor Registration Form and payment. We will attempt to follow the preferences and special requests you note in your online registration. Registration will be open until space is sold out. However, your registration must be submitted by March 6 if you want your company listed in the printed conference program.
