MEDIA ALERT – 9:30 a.m. Monday: EAA to Dedicate AirVenture’s Marquee Area as ConocoPhillips Plaza

OSHKOSH, Wis. – The EAA will dedicate AirVenture’s “West Ramp” marquee attraction area as ConocoPhillips Plaza in a special ceremony 9:30 a.m. Monday, July 25.

The dedication ceremony marks a multi-year agreement by ConocoPhillips to be the presenting sponsor of ConocoPhillips Plaza. The area is customarily the hub of activity at AirVenture.

ConocoPhillips’ legendary, 84-year-old history of aviation leadership, service and innovation – plus its longstanding support of EAA’s Young Eagles program – makes for an ideal tie-in to AirVenture’s marquee event area.

“ConocoPhillips has been a long-time AirVenture supporter, and we are delighted to bring them on board as the title sponsor of ConocoPhillips Plaza,” said Tom Poberezny, EAA and AirVenture chairman. “Their support is a big reason why we are able to bring in the marquee attractions featured at Oshkosh.”

Daily “must-visit” opportunities at the 10,000 square-foot ConocoPhillips Tent include historic war birds, an FAA-approved flight simulator, historical aviation photo opportunities, aviation giveaways, the ConocoPhillips History Trail (featuring aviation innovations and influencers), and more.
