Upcoming Events


  • Product Fest 2021 - May 13 @ The Opportunity Parking Deck

    Due to the postponement of ProductFest last year, we are so excited to have a show this year and welcome everyone back! With vendor, sponsor, and attendee safety in mind, ProductFest 2021 will be held on the fourth and fifth levels of the Opportunity Parking Deck in downtown Akron (666 Broadway St., Akron, OH 44311). We feel the unique location of the show in a parking deck provides you with the ability to have face-to-face interaction with people in a safe environment. To maintain that safe environment for everyone, we have provided adequate ventilation by being outdoors and increased space between vendors and those in educational seminars. Multiple hand sanitizing, hand washing stations, and restrooms will be available for attendees. All attendees must also comply with social distancing requirements, wear masks at all times (unless actively eating or drinking), and complete Akron-Canton CSI's COVID-19 Waiver before the program, and stay home if they have a fever, cough, or other signs of possible COVID-19. We hope these precautions create a sense of safety for everyone and will encourage people to attend. 

    PRODUCTFEST 2021 is your company’s opportunity to present your product, service, or solution to your most important future customers and establish beneficial relationships.
    This year, vendors will use the trunk of their car as their booth backdrop (à la tailgate). A table will be provided for each vendor, and vendors are encouraged to supply their own camp chairs.  *Display area is one parking space with no power and setup must stay within this area.
