Miscellaneous Information

Curriculum Exhibits:

We appreciate all the wonderful exhibitors attending the OCEANetwork Conference. They offer excellent resources to homeschool families. Exhibitors include full-curriculum suppliers, one-subject offerings, services to help struggling homeschoolers, and more. Click here if you are interested in exhibiting at the Oregon Christian Home Education Conference, July 22 & 23, 2016.

Exhibit Hall Only Pass

We believe the curriculum hall and the conference work together to equip you for the upcoming school year. Therefore, we encourage you to register for the whole conference to obtain the best preparation for next year.

However, we realize there are some who prefer to attend the Exhibit Hall only. Therefore, we will be offering Exhibit Hall Only passes this year for $15 per adult and $10 per child, ages 3 and older. (Children 3 - 12 are not allowed in the Used Curriculum Exchange.)

The Exhibit Hall Only pass includes:

  • admission to the Exhibit Hall both Friday and Saturday
  • admission to Exhibitor Workshops
  • admission to the Used Curriculum Exchange (for ages 13+). For their own safety, younger children (0 - 12) may not be in the Used Curriculum Exchange. Please make alternative care arrangements. (Have Dad, a grandparent or friend watch them while you are shopping in the Used Curriculum Exchange.)

Individuals with an Exhibit Hall Only Pass will not be able to attend any conference workshops or keynote sessions at the conference. If you find you would like to attend the entire conference, you may apply your Exhibit Hall Only fees toward walk-in conference registration.

Exhibit Hall Only Passes must be purchased at the door. They go on sale starting at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 19th and will be available for purchase throughout the conference. Used Curriculum Exhibition shopping times for those purchasing Exhibit Hall Only Passes will be after families who pre-registered for the entire conference.

Exhibit Hall Hours:

Friday, July 22, 2016, 10:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, July 23, 2016, 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.


We are pleased to announce that the following exhibitors will be attending our conference this year:

Additional exhibitors are still being added, so please check back.
