From theological schools to specialty craft vendors, UUA staff groups to affiliate groups, the GA exhibit hall is a diverse marketplace of ideas and goods. The Exhibit Hall is always a popular focal point; it provides a gathering place, rest stop, marketplace, and food concessions for GA attendees. By exhibiting at General Assembly (GA), our exhibitors will be contributing to the learning, enrichment, and networking opportunities that GA attendees have so looked forward to. This unique experience offers exhibitors a multi-dimensional opportunity to engage and strengthen awareness for your specific cause, product, or organization.

2022 General Assembly was a multi-platform experience hosted in Portland Oregon at the Oregon Convention Center. Over 3,300 attendees participated in-person and online, with over 1,300 of those participants in-person. After two years of fully virtual exhibits and sponsorships, we proudly welcomed back 73 exhibitors including 55 in-person exhibitors and 18 fully virtual exhibitors on the GA App powered by Whova. Our 2022 Exhibitors benefitted from the flexibility of interacting with attendees both online and in-person.In-person attendees enjoyed the spacious new floorplan, allowing for social distancing and multiple seating areas. For the first time, we also offered daily entertainment and raffles in the exhibit hall, including performances from local Portland-area musicians.
