Vendor Registration for the 2022 KSA Fall Conference is Now Open!

The 2022 KSA Fall Conference will be held on November 15th, 16th and 17th, 2022 at the Kansas Star Event Center in Mulvane, Kansas. The Vendor Exhibit Day will be on Wednesday November 16th, 2022.
Vendor Registration is now open for this event.

Last year saw 306 attendees and of those 85 Kansas Sheriffs. We also had 160 Vendor Booth Spaces reserved and space is limited so we highly recommend your reserve your booth space early.

Each booth will consist of a 10' by 10' draped area including one (1) 8' table, two (2) chairs, backdrop draping a sign with your company name and one (1) 110V electrical outlet. All exhibits will be in one area to assure high visibility and access to your display. Additional tables will be available for a fee.  There will be only one exhibitor per space. No vendor will be allowed to attach any items to the drapery portion of their booth. Exhibitors wishing to display products in sleeping rooms may do so only if they are registered as exhibitors and have paid the exhibitors fee.

If you are wanting to exhibit a vehicle, please indicate so on the application form. (Vehicles require two booths at a discounted rate of $1,050.)

The exhibitor registration fee is $650.00, $1,050 for vehicle and double booth spaces.  This fee covers only two (2) persons per booth. There is an additional charge of $20.00 per person over two.  All registered representatives are welcome and encouraged to attend all hospitality functions during the conference.

KSA reserves the right to cancel or refuse rental of display space to any person or company whose conduct or display of goods is, in the opinion of the Executive Director, incompatible with the general character and objectives of the Association.
