2020 threw our industry some curve balls but event people are resilient and we're going to Turn the Tide in 2021!
Join us for THE conference for festivals and events, March 5-6.
This year's virtual conference provides us a unique experience to bring in a wider variety of speakers from across the country. Tapping into the online community means more opportunities for you to make grow your events. Plus, with Happy Hours, Roundtables, Coffee Breaks, and Showcases you'll get all the same in-person socializing and networking opportunities. We'll be sending out conference kits to everyone who registers so you can unbox and play along. We're bringing the same conference experience from the comfort of your own home!
From giant outdoor festivals to intimate charity fundraisers, special events play a unique and vibrant role in Oregon life. Their impact on tourism and local economies is undeniable, but equally important is the sense of community that events can build.
Our annual spring conference is our biggest gathering and though it will be virtual this year we still plan on making the best yet. Our speakers, seminars, round tables, entertainer showcases, a trade show and the Ovations! Awards provide an unparalleled opportunity to meet your peers from around the state while learning from experts.
The Oregon Festivals & Events Association is designed to make life easier for event people of all kinds. OFEA is composed of event producers, sponsors, entertainers, volunteers, vendors and suppliers from throughout the state. Together, we share information, resources and contacts to make our events more successful.
