Information for Conference Sponsors 

Oregon Gerontological Association's 2020 Virtual Annual Conference:
"Older Adults and Emergencies: Lessons Learned and Looking Forward"

This year, as we are amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the Oregon Gerontological Association (OGA) is planning a series of webinars themed “Older Adults and Emergencies: Lessons Learned and Looking Forward.” The series will focus on pandemics, natural disasters and other emergencies, and how we can best plan for, support and engage older adults when catastrophe hits. Foregrounding the sessions will be issues related to diversity and equity. The series will feature a wide variety of thought-provoking and interactive sessions designed for aging services providers, long-term care facility staff, policymakers, advocates, first responders, caregivers, businesses focused on older adults, researchers and educators. 

Five professionally produced virtual sessions will be held on Friday mornings in October from 9:30 am-12:00 pm. For more information, including session topics and presenters, please visit our 2020 conference page.

Sponsor Benefits of Virtual Events

The virtual OGA’s 2020 conference brings special benefits for sponsors. These include:

  • High visibility: Attendees’ attention is focused on the screen. Also, sessions will be professionally produced and recorded for subsequent access by registrants.
  • Access to target audience: Emails with sponsor information reach 900+ contacts.
  • Minimal effort: A slide with sponsors’ names and logos during the break and at the end of the session, along with pre-recorded promotional spots for Session Sponsors and the Series Sponsor, replace staffed exhibit tables.
