Opening date is May 10, 2011 at 8:00 am to claim your spot. This allows everyone some time to look over the program and make some decisions. Because booth space and/or sponsorship participation is limited at some shows, the program is on a first-come-basis.

Or send to:

Oklahoma City, OK 73102

(It is recommended to fax the forms in on opening day to ensure acceptance due to limited space at some shows.)

The program is offered to all Oklahoma tourism industry partners. We hope you are able to join us in promoting our state to thousands of potential visitors!
