Exhibitors and Sponsors
The Organization of American Kodály Educators (OAKE) cordially invites you to be an exhibitor at its National Conference in Oklahoma City, OK March 22-25, 2018. 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 Renaissance Oklahoma City Convention Center Hotel by Marriott, with exhibits located in the Cox Convention Center Second Level Prefunction space. To find out more information about the Conference Hotels and Travel to OKC, see our Hotel and Travel page.
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.
