Ohio State Fair looking for exhibitors; new building for 2016


COLUMBUS — Officials hope when the 2016 Ohio State Fair opens, its newest building will feature a state-of-the-art exhibit of ideas from Ohio companies in a number of areas including: agriculture, aerospace, automotive, medicine, technology and others.


The idea is to highlight innovative ideas, products and technologies from Ohio companies and strengthen youth interest in the STEM Learning Network, explained Ohio Expositions Commission Chair Tom Price.


New building


Cardinal Hall, the yet-to-be constructed home of this exhibition, will open just in time for the 2016 fair.


The building will offer customized settings in exhibit halls ranging from 12,500 to 75,000 square feet, along with six different meeting rooms to hold a combined 200 individuals.


Ohio focus. During the Ohio State Fair, a minimum of 25,000 square feet will be dedicated to the new exhibit. The exhibition will allow companies to highlight their newest developments directly to Ohio’s consumers.


This exhibition will feature demonstrations and displays including, but not limited to: agricultural innovations in food science and production; aerospace; the automotive industry; hospitals and researchers highlighting the latest in healthcare; and companies introducing their newest products.
