THE SMART TOOLS OF THE TRADE

Supporting Vendors and Sponsors

Vendors and Sponsors

Become a sponsor (Book mark down to sponsor section) or a vendor (Bookmark down to Vendor section) and support those who serve you.  Vendors and Sponsors help us keep our cost low and makes training opportunities affordable to your local providers.

Representatives from first responder agencies across the Commonwealth will be in Hampton Roads on August 7th - 11th for the First Responder Virginia Convention.  As they train, conduct business and compete they will also be checking out the newest equipment available.  Could they use your products and services?  Perhaps you are looking to recruit trained and skilled employees in a first responder base business.   Don’t miss the opportunity to connect with those potential customers or employees, or re-connect with your current ones.   

While there,  you are welcome to come join us for our Thursday Night picnic at Buckroe Beach and Friday Night Casino Night.  There will also be a buffet in the Exhibits area on Friday.

We offer display area small enough to recruit employees out of and large enough for ladder trucks.   All at a reasonable price.   You are invited to help make the Inaugural First Responder Virginia Convention a success for everyone.  We are confident that you will find this event beneficial and we look forward to seeing you in August.
