Service members picOAAS Service Members provide valuable products and services to Ontario Fairs and exhibitions. Members receive free publicity by automatically being listed in the "Service Members Directory", which appears annually in our Ontario Fairs and exhibitions Directory.

Members can also apply for space in the Trade Show, or on the Main Showcase and Children's Showcase at the annual Convention in February. All service members are automatically on our mailing lists for information that we periodically mail.
