SUPPLIER REGISTRATION HAS SOLD OUT

If you are a supplier still interested in having a presence at OGR's Annual Conference, contact Executive Director Wendy King about sponsorship opportunities.


Join us at the luxurious Hotel Carmichael on the north side of Indy May 15 - 17, 2022 for OGR's return to in-person events. That means your chance to revisit and build value-oriented business relationships with key decision-makers from the funeral profession.

This unique event offers an unprecedented opportunity to maximize your valuable time through access to our members for the entire Conference. You won’t be roped off in a separate room waiting for attendees to come visit your booth - suppliers will have full access to all conference events. You'll be side-by-side with our funeral director attendees every step of the way from educational sessions to networking breaks and meals. Not only that, but we will have assigned seating at each event and will use that to guarantee one representative from your company gets a seat at a table with funeral director attendees so you don't need to worry about having your representative stuck at a table with nothing but other exhibitors. NOTE: If you send multiple representatives, we cannot guarantee the same level of access for your second attendee.
