Convention exhibitor information

The cost of exhibit space includes much more than just the actual physical dimensions of your booth. The Ohio State Bar Association provides a wide range of additional opportunities and services to help make this your most productive and profitable exhibit in the Ohio legal marketplace.


The OSBA Annual Convention is the largest gathering of legal professionals in Ohio. Do not miss this opportunity to showcase your products and services to more than 1,000 Ohio lawyers.


The OSBA takes steps to ensure exhibitor traffic and maximize the return on your investment. Attendees are given the opportunity to enter a prize drawing by visiting exhibits and having a ticket validated.

Convention registration, voting, continental breakfasts and morning/afternoon breaks are all located in the exhibit area, and the popular complimentary Friday luncheon is served in the Exhibit Hall as well. Our goal is to make certain your time at our Convention produces results.
