Super EXPO 2024
Thank you for your interest in the OLA Super Conference 2024 and the EXPO. It is Canada’s largest annual library and information event. The OLA Super Conference attracted 4,500 in 2020.
The 2024 OLA Super Conference will be returning to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
In the past few years, we have learned the importance of holding event spaces and gatherings that are both flexible and accessible for attendees, and we know how important it is to provide options. We are thrilled to be back in-person for Super Conference 2024, while also curating a Digital Experience that allows OLA members to choose how they attend and participate in the conference.
OLA Super Conference has grown steadily since 1999 and is recognized as a leading event for professional development and networking on the continent. Many vendors come to OLA when they have policies not to attend state/provincial level conferences because of the sheer size and market size that is presented to them.
Please look at the Prospectus below for all the information on the event. Remember that OLA Associate Members receive a discount on space and preference for allocation.
It’s Time to Get Loud!
Get Loud symbolizes our commitment to civic engagement, recognizing the significance of libraries in promoting equity, diversity, and truth. As champions of education and democracy, libraries play a pivotal role in empowering individuals and building community. We acknowledge the challenges ahead, unsure of the exact demands our services will face or how our libraries will adapt and transform.
In this dynamic and transformative era, Get Loud also signals a commitment to our professional values and our confidence in and certainty that values-based library practices (e.g., planning, programming, service delivery, and assessment) will continue to stand the test of time. Libraries serve as platforms that help people find their voices and strive to offer safe spaces for the expression of diverse ideas, experiences, and perspectives.
At a moment of derision and division, when libraries increasingly become sites of protest, we must stand up for and actively defend the library and its foundational role in fostering an informed citizenry and enlightened society.
Together, as we move forward, united by our shared purpose, let us reconnect with and recommit to our founding mission with determination and a resounding voice.
Come and Get Loud with us at the OLA Super Conference 2024!
