Below are important
guidelines for all industry representatives, developed by members of

that company participation is kept on a level playing field:

5. All company staff
and family members (≥13

their badge, attend the mandatory exhibitor meeting, and sign an agreement

Companies that violate
these guidelines create a difficult situation for consumers, and ultimately,
it’s the Oley Foundation that suffers.
We are grateful for your cooperation.

The Oley booth raffle works like this:
1. You supply and display the item, something to put names on (it can be a raffle ticket, or slips of paper) and a collection bowl at your booth.
2. You collect the names of people in the bowl when they visit your booth.
3. Towards the end of the second exhibit day, (at around 2:00 p.m. on, July 1) Oley staff will announce the drawing time. You will bring your item, and bowl with collected names to the podium (along with other participating companies.)
4. An Oley volunteer will draw the winning ticket from your bowl, and you present the prize to the winner. If you want your bowl of collected names back, you should take it at this time. Then it is the next company's turn.
