PWDAD Exhibitor information

Being an exhibitor at People with Disabilities Awareness gives disability-related organizations the opportunity to meet a large number of people with disabilities, their family members or those who advocate for them. You can also be able to reach Senators or Representatives or their staff about the valuable work your organization does.

If you are an exhibitor and registered yourself and your table workers, you will be notified a week before as to your table location. When you arrive proceed to your table and a volunteer will come by to check you in. Exhibitors do not have to go through the registration line. If you cannot find your table, ask any volunteer. They will be able to assist you.

Please set up between 10:30 a.m. to noon.

When you arrive, there will be a sign with your organization's name on the exhibit table assigned to you. There will be hosts available to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.

DRS will do our best to honor requests for electricity. Please bring power strips, extension cords and offer to share with your neighbors.

This year, we are hosting our event at the Oklahoma History Center. The exhibit tables will be throughout the building. The table floor plans are below.

Due to limited space, exhibit tables are assigned by invitation. If you have not received an invitation but want to exhibit, feel free to register as an exhibitor and you will be added to the waiting list. The waiting list is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

As always there is no cost for a table, but your organization/program must be disability-related.

In the event the Coronavirus worsens and it becomes unsafe to host this event, the in-person event will be canceled and a virtual event to bring awareness will be instituted.

PWDAD Exhibitor Registration is important

Please help us plan ahead by registering as an exhibitor online and registering those who will be assisting you at the table.

If you include your home address on the registration, we will have your personal Senator and Representative and their room numbers looked up prior to the event and at the table when you arrive. We want to encourage everyone, even the exhibitors, to talk to Legislators or their staff about the issues that concern the disability community. No one makes a bigger impact on a Legislator than a constituent.

When you arrive at the event, get to go straight to your table you do not have to go through registration. There you will find programs in the format requested and a check-in sheet for all the registered table workers.
