OMSI After Dark: Oceans is an ocean-themed event on August 30 from 7 to 11 p.m. aimed at the 21-and-over crowd—an opportunity to have a glass of beer or wine and roam the museum with nary a kid in sight. Local food and drink and other companies are invited to show off their products, give out samples, and talk about the science behind what they do.
OMSI is soliciting groups to set up a table with marketing materials like you might do at a farmers' market or festival to have staff talk to and educate visitors. Small free giveaways always go over big. Tables are popular with participants and are a good way to get the word out and promote what you do. You can hand out your marketing materials and OMSI will link to your website in theirs. Best of all, setting up a table is FREE!
If you have questions or would like to participate as a CEOAS exhibitor in OMSI After Dark: Oceans, contact:
