2018 Conference RFP

The bidding process for our 2018 conference is now closed. RFP information for our 2019 conference will be available this summer.

We are making an effort to move our conferences more regularly around the country and are targeting the Midwest and South regions for our 2018 conference. Our 2018 conference location will be announced following site visits by headquarters staff in fall 2015 and a presentation at the January 2016 board meeting.

Bid materials are available for download below as a sample.

OWAA will work directly with the host city Convention & Visitors Bureau during the bid process.. While OWAA’s conference has traditionally been held in June or July, we are open to proposals in shoulder seasons that offer the best rates for OWAA and our members. A completed Bid Questionnaire must be returned with all submitted bids in order to be considered. You can also contact Jessica Seitz, jseitz[at], with additional questions.

OWAA conference will host around 250 attendees from a wide array of outdoor communication professionals. Conference is structured as a 3-day peak night pattern over the course of a weekend.
