Sponsorship Opportunities

Why should you sponsor?

The Ohio Aviation Association is the voice for the airports that contribute to the economic vibrancy and well-being of Ohio, 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 everyday 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?

The Ohio Aviation Association is pleased to announce the many sponsorship opportunities available for 2018 that both support OAA and help your organization.   Below, you will find a description of sponsorship opportunities.  Some opportunities are limited, so respond early. Help us tell your story by supporting us in one or more opportunities for 2018!

2018 Annual Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

The 2018 Annual Conference of the Ohio Aviation Association will be held April 10-11, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. We have a new venue this year, the Hilton/Columbus Polaris, and we think you will be pleased. Your company is extremely important to OAA to the industry and you are invited to take this opportunity to build new and maintain current customer relations, enhance your image, and vet products and services.

In 2017, OAA had just over 200 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 standout 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. If your company sponsors any part of the OAA 2018 Annual Conference, your company will be featured on our special post-conference thank you page highlighting all the sponsors.

There are general sponsorship categories (Silver, Gold, Platinum), event/item specific sponsorships, student sponsorships, webinar sponsorships and website advertisements opportunities.
