Want to Exhibit?
Welcome to the fifth annual OACP B2B Trade Show, participation in which also includes a one-year membership on our OACP B2B website. This unique combination of event and website allows your company and products to be seen not only day-of at the Trade Show, but by all Police Services across Ontario, and indeed across Canada, throughout the year. And thanks to the recommendations of last year's exhibitors, we have made improvements that will make this year's show an even more effective event for all participants.
This is a one-day event with a limited number of booths available – just 46 – which ensures exposure and visitation. Participating vendors have the unique opportunity to directly engage with Police Buyers and Professionals, and to move business forward. This year’s event will feature:
Greater Attendance: A broader range of Police Services and Police Professionals this year will enhance the experience and the opportunity.
Media Room: Exhibitors will have the opportunity to make a short video on their company and/or products which will be posted to our Facebook page and website.
Social Media: Besides video postings from the Media Room, staff and delegates will be sending out Twitter messages and picture postings through the day.
Trade Show & B2B Membership Fee
Cost is $2500 + HST and includes a 10'x10' booth with back and side drapes, skirted 6'x2’ table, 2 chairs, plus 12-month membership listing on the OACP B2B website.
Accommodations must be booked separately. Please book your room by Friday, September 7th, 2018 to receive the preferred rate. Space is limited.
All Trade Show exhibitors receive a 1-year membership on the OACP B2B website – an electronic-catalogue used by all Police Services and their procurement teams. This "go-to" website will directly link with the Police Cooperative Purchasing Group (“PCPG”), ensuring increased relevant traffic, and that vendor searches are simplified for PCPG members. Generally speaking, the website allows users to quickly and conveniently find the products/services they are looking for, and then confidently connect with qualified suppliers.
For both buyers/users and qualifying vendors, access to and membership on the B2B site includes value-added benefits such as Supplier News (post updates on your company or products), and Chief Topics editorial designed to keep the site topical and current.
