OSAE 2019 Annual Conference: Thank You for Making It a Resounding Success
It's because of your devotion that we achieve great milestones
This year, OSAE held its 2019 annual conference June 19-21 at the Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel in Toledo, Ohio. We cannot thank you enough for your attendance, engagement and camaraderie at the event. Not only did you attend and participate in lively discussion, you also networked and supported the OSAE Foundation. On behalf of the OSAE and OSAEF Boards of Directors, the organization thanks you.
To Destination Toledo, the Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel and the Toledo-area sponsors, we truly cannot say "thank you" as profoundly as we should. You set the standard for how a CVB, a property and its community can welcome OSAE to its city.
All in all, attendees who actively participated in this year’s conference gained 10 CEUs for their involvement. This year, OSAE once again held concurrent educational sessions. In addition to presentations from industry leaders, the breakout sessions provided additional hands-on, in-depth analysis of issues that are impacting association professionals in today’s ever-changing environment.
OSAE would like to thank our amazing sponsors, including Platinum Sponsor Saling Simms Associates; Gold Sponsors: CareWorks Comp; Experience Columbus; Kalahari Resorts & Conventions | Sandusky; Markey's Rental & Staging; and Visit Hamilton County, Indiana. Silver Sponsors: Community Brands by YourMembership; CompManagement; Dublin Ohio Convention & Visitors Bureau; Lake Erie Shores & Islands; TCS Software; The Summit | A Dolce Hotel. Bronze Sponsors: infintech; The Ohio Trucking Association; Printing Arts Press. Conference Benefactors: Burgie MediaFusion; Clark Schaefer Hackett; Excel Decorators, Inc.; Marriott Columbus Northwest; Marriott University of Dayton; The OSAE Foundation; Picture America Photography and Results @ Hand.
The contributions made by these companies enriched and strengthened this year’s conference, and OSAE encourages our members to consider working with these companies when seeking out partners in excellence.
Multiple contests were held by exhibitors and OSAE this year to ensure members had an enjoyable time at the conference. Thank you to those who donated a door prize and to those who participated in these great offerings.
