2016 Conference RFP

The bidding process for our 2016 conference is now closed. The 2017 RFP will be available in May 2014.

We are making an effort to move our conferences more regularly around the country and are targeting the Midwest and West regions for our 2016 conference. Our 2016 conference location will be announced following site visits by headquarters staff in fall 2013 and a presentation at the January 2014 board meeting.

Bid materials for 2017 will be posted in May. 2016 RFP materials are available below for informational purposes only.

OWAA will work directly with the host city Convention & Visitors Bureau during the bid process – please do not have individual resorts or properties contact us. 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 Pollett, jpollett[at]owaa.org, with additional questions.

OWAA conference will host around 350 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.
