OACRAO has a membership base of more than 500 individuals. Our conference event prepares an environment to offer less external distractions while supporting more interaction. OACRAO members represent public and private colleges and universities in Ohio, including liberal arts, state universities and community and technical colleges. Attendees will largely include registrars, admissions officers, and enrollment managers.

Exhibitors are Corporate Members of OACRAO and are partners in the success of our organization and its mission. Corporate Members are extremely involved in OACRAO's annual conference as exhibitors, sponsors, and presenters. Thursday of each conference is dedicated as exhibitor day in which our corporate members present their goods and services at informational booths. Exhibitors also have the opportunity to present educational sessions as a part of the programming to highlight their products and services to attendees during sessions on Thursday.

Exhibitor Day for OACRAO 2023 at Hocking Hills Lodge and Conference Center is on Thursday, October 26, 2023. We encourage you to join us as an exhibitor at our annual conference to demonstrate how your product is applicable to registrar, admissions, and enrollment management needs and those of our clientele. The exhibitor registration fee for OACRAO 2023 is $475 and includes booth space and all Thursday conference meals for one person (with additional representatives from organizations for a fee of $100 per person). The fee also includes a corporate membership in OACRAO that provides exhibitors with access to the online membership directory, the newsletter, and other miscellaneous membership benefits.


Exhibitor registration is full. Note that exhibitor spaces are limited to 12, so register as soon as you are able to ensure you have a spot.

Priority will be given to partner presentations with representatives from Ohio schools.

When available, a link to submit session proposals and the deadline will be available here.
