2019 ODF Sponsorships

Help Support the Ohio Defense Forum


We hope you will consider joining us for the Ohio Defense Forum 2019. This event is for defense installation leadership, community leaders, industry representatives, academia, business owners, and elected officials; to connect, build awareness, and gain a deeper understanding of the current defense environment and the role each of us play in supporting national defense within the state of Ohio and beyond. Networking opportunities throughout the event allow all participants to interact and discuss key issues directly with top level officials. This year, our historic venue is just a short walk from the Ohio Statehouse. Opening ceremonies will begin after lunch on October 7, along with an evening Networking Reception. Day Two will feature a full breakfast, with the program ending around noon on October 8. Thank you so much for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you to ODF 2019!
