Exhibitors and Sponsors

The Organization of American Kodály Educators cordially invites you to be an Exhibitor at its National Conference in Columbus, Ohio, March 21‐24, 2019. Our theme is Heart & Hand, Mind & Ear: Kodály’s Musical Balance. We expect over 500 conference attendees, made up of music teachers, administrators, and higher education faculty; in addition to approximately 500 national conference choir students and their families. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Columbus, 350 N High Street, Columbus, Ohio.

Exhibitors and sponsors play an essential role in the success of the OAKE National Conferences. Conference exhibits provide teachers and administrators an opportunity to examine and purchase materials relating to the enhancement of music education. This includes choral and instrumental materials, children’s literature with musical themes, musical instruments, audio and video recordings, computer software, musical giftware, music classroom supplies and so much more. You may be interested to know that many attendees also “shop” the exhibits to purchase a “conference souvenir” for themselves or their children. Sponsors help support the many different events and components of our conference while providing an excellent opportunity to market their brand to our attendees.

-We have six different levels of Sponsorships available
Exhibit tables are $165 for the first table, $110 for additional tables
-Special Advertising options can also be added with this reservation 
NEW! “Show Your Support” with an easy $300 sponsorship
