#IspyOLC Social Media Game

10 randomly drawn registered attendees will receive an OLC mug prior to the conference and are encouraged to participate in the #IspyOLC game by using their mug or making the mug visible during the conference sessions. Watch for these OLC mugs and when you spot one – snap a pic and post on social media with #IspyOLC.

But you don’t need an OLC mug to participate! Look for – and share – the OLC logo throughout the conference!

How to Participate:

  1. Post a selfie of yourself holding or wearing OLC swag or post a pic of OLC swag you “spy” while in an OLC Innovate session
  2. Remember to include #IspyOLC
  3. Be creative, but subtle (please do not disrespect our session presenters and distract from their session) if your OLC swag is small, show on your webcam at the beginning or end of a session


  • show your OLC pen 
  • show your OLC wristband
  • use your OLC earbuds (show the case so we can see that OLC logo!)
  • wear your OLC t-shirt
  • hang an OLC luggage tag from your glasses
  • wear your OLC stocking cap
  • show your OLC webcam cover while you’re in a session
  • have an OLC staff business card? hold that up!
  • ribbons from your namebadge at an OLC conference
  • show OLC stuffed animals
  • hang an OLC reusable bag behind or near you
  • show an OLC sticker or tattoo
  • show your OLC notepad

Haven’t been to an OLC conference or don’t have any OLC swag? Create your own! – Simply have the OLC logo visible while in your OLC Innovate session.
