2021 Kansas Sheriffs Fall Training Conference will be held at the Kansas Star Event Center In Mulvane, Kansas (9 miles south of Wichita, Kansas) on November 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 2021.

We will start taking reservations for exhibit space at the conference around June 1st, 2021. 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.
