    In 2024, the OELMA Conference will be located at OCLC in Dublin, OH, October 2nd-4th, 2024. The multi-day in-person conference and the centralized location will be a big draw for the Conference. The Conference Planning Committee has created a schedule that will let attendees and exhibitors capitalize on this wonderful location and venue. As an exhibitor, you will have more time with attendees, more exposure for your products and services, and a more productive exhibitor experience! The theme this year is: Empowering the Future: Lifting Voices through the Library.

    There are many opportunities for you to participate. Members of our exhibitor committee are eager to work with you to create a custom sponsorship package that helps you showcase your company and services in the way that fits you best. Hundreds of school librarians, educators, and administrators are expected to attend OELMA 2024 and your sponsorship will make it possible for OELMA to present another great event!

    Please contact the Conference Director for more information at oelma.teach@gmail.com. 

    We look forward to working with you and seeing you at conference this year!
