for the

OACP Annual Conference Trade Show

April 8th & 9th, 2020 – Bend, OR  – Riverhouse

Did you know…

80-90 Chiefs attend the OACP Annual Conference and therefore 80-90 agencies are represented!
140-150 law enforcement leaders participate in the conference

What you all did this year was amazing. I loved the pre-conference meeting with the vendors and the passport program you created. Marie was great to work with as well as the rest of the conference staff. Fantastic job!

Marie and staff did an exemplary job of “pushing” conference attendees toward the vendors/sponsors. Gets better every year.

The vendor “welcome” informational meeting and raffle was very helpful. It was nice to hear what to expect for traffic times, meals not included, etc. The engagement with the Bingo and hidden money was great!

The bingo sheets really increased traffic this year. As a vendor with several competitors it would be nice to have a live view of where other vendors are when picking which booth number we prefer. This years length and participation was by far the best out of my last 4 years attending.

As a former OACP member during my time as a captain at Springfield and Eugene PD, I was very familiar with the value of networking. In 2017 I signed up as a vendor for the OACP conference in Bend. I saw many old friends and made several new contacts. Since the product I sell is workplace investigations and pre-employment backgrounds it was unknown whether or not my participation was going to generate business for me.

That question was quickly settled. As I was leaving the Riverhouse parking lot my phone started ringing with a request for my services. The bottle openers, coffee cups and conversations at the conference developed many clients. Successful work generated more referrals to other chiefs, city attorneys and private attorney clients.  I was busy for the next 6 months with new and referral business.

The end result was that following the OACP conference SS Investigations generated approximately $50,000 in the 8 months following the conference. Needless to say I am back for 2018 and enjoyed the experience immensely.
