Trade Show Postponed - MA Chiefs April 8, 2020

 The Executive Board of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association voted to postpone our Annual Trade Show -which was scheduled for Wednesday, April 8, 2020- to a date to be determined this fall. The location will remain unchanged. This action is in response to the state of emergency enacted by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic.  Please check back in the coming days for important upcoming messages concerning the fall date and registration details.

As we open our 2020 Annual Trade Show, I must first thank you for your ongoing support of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association and the support and training we provide to Police Chiefs across the Commonwealth.

Our Annual Trade Show continues to grow! We are now the second largest law enforcement trade show on the East Coast, something we're very proud of. (The Michigan Police Chiefs hold the largest law enforcement trade show in the Midwest. We're bigger!) Participation in our show is worthy of your strongest consideration. Short of the IACP Conference, we believe we're your next greatest value.

We work to keep our members engaged with you, on the show floor. We don't hold training sessions or sit-down meals, as we believe they only detract from why we're there- for you to be seen and for us to see you! Don't worry, you'll see food at locations throughout the building all day, at no cost!

We constantly strive to improve your show. We listen closely to our vendors and include a vendor in our show committee. Mark Tremblay of Tremco Anti-Theft Products helps us to understand the perspective of you, the vendor.

We've designed the layout of the exhibition hall with "something for everyone" in terms of booth location and size. Even with 170 booths, we end up with a wait list of 20-30 vendors, so don't delay in registering to attend!

Last year we started a floor layout that incorporated what we call "Main Street", a high-visibility row that runs across the entire building from side-to-side. Other than the booths that are immediately visible when you enter the hall, Main Street offers the greatest exposure for you and your products. While many of the "Big Boys" are located on Main Street now, the pricing is still a great value for companies of any size.

You come to the show to be seen, so BE SEEN!

Now, let's talk about booth pricing. (Think Location, Location, Location!)

Click HERE to see the sample exhibition hall floor plan.

  • Platinum Booths (The Front Row Seats!) are the FIRST booths that show attendees see when they enter the hall to register. Standing in line, waiting for their credentials, they're looking at YOUR booth!
  • Premium Booths "Main Street" (High visibility across the hall!) is your next most visible choice, where your booth grabs the attention of show goers. These go quickly!
  • Standard booths are spacious and accommodating for you and your goods.
  • Double booths offer you twice the space at a $300.00 discount!
  • Your cars are welcome! Cars- despite taking up the space of two booths- are a value at $850.00!
  • Cars or larger vehicles can be parked in front of the entrance for $400.00 per marked parking place.
  • Certain key locations require a sponsorship to be located there

Please start planning your booth display early. Is your display engaging? Does it draw potential customers in to see you wares? Do you select your booth staff using folks who know HOW to sell? These tips can make your booth a hit that generates sales and leads. Click here for some ideas.

Please remember that each booth includes two exhibitor passes. Additional vendor passes are available for $40.00/each. (Think free parking and day-long food.)
