About the Event

The 2024 OMEA Professional Development Conference will take place in Columbus, Ohio from February 1-3 at the Columbus Convention Center and nearby hotel properties. The OMEA PDC is the one of the largest music conference in the United States with nearly 300 sessions presented by nationally recognized master teachers demonstrating research-based, best practices in the field of music education. In addition, over 30 performing ensembles will present concerts showcasing the talents of Ohio’s students. The OMEA PDC partners with the Technology Institute for Music Education to provide every teacher in attendance with access to clinics and demonstrations of the latest music education technology. Included in the registration fee is access to the largest music trade show east of the Mississippi. Displays and demonstrations by nearly 250 exhibitors from across the United States allow teachers to see the new products available in the music industry. With a few additional steps, teachers may use their conference experience to earn CEU’s (nominal additional registration expense) and graduate level continuing education credit (additional expense) for their licensure requirements.
