Agenda:

DOWNLOAD DRAFT AGENDA (PDF) — Posted August 9, 2017

We do hope you'll make plans to attend the Valor Awards Banquet on Tuesday night, which is included in your registration fee.  This is the event where we set aside some time to honor our Virginia law enforcement officers who, in the line of duty, perform some act of extraordinary heroism while engaged with an adversary at imminent personal risk.  The Award for Valor is the highest honor that the VACP bestows and the young officers that we recognize each year all have incredible, moving stories.  The banquet is always a nice event and a great way to let our Virginia officers know how much we appreciate them and their sacrifices. 

(BANQUET ATTIRE: Uniform dress or business attire – suit and tie – recommended for honorees and their agency heads as well as VACP Board Members.  Business attire appreciated for conference attendees.)

Conference Fees:

Member Delegate: $350*
Non-Member Delegate: $400*
The MEMBER and NON-MEMBER DELEGATE fees cover Monday breakfast and breaks; Tuesday breakfast, breaks, lunch and dinner (Valor Banquet); and Wednesday breakfast. Due to the costs charged by the hotel, the VACP will not à la carte the conference rate. (See Cancellation Policy below.)

Exhibits Only: $25*
The EXHIBITS ONLY fee is a pass for any personnel not attending the conference to come and visit the exhibit hall and meet with vendors.  EXHIBITS ONLY pass holders may partake in the breaks served in the exhibit hall.

Auction Volunteers: $25*
The Auction Volunteers fee is a pass for any personnel attending the conference as a volunteer for the silent auction.  Auction Volunteers may visit the exhibit hall and meet with vendors, and may partake in break services.  Meals and training are not included with this fee.

Spouse/Family: $125*
The SPOUSE/FAMILY fee covers Monday breakfast and breaks; Tuesday breakfast, breaks, lunch and dinner (Valor Banquet); and Wednesday breakfast. Attendees with SPOUSE/FAMILY badges are not permitted to attend training and will not be approved to receive training credits. (See Cancellation Policy below.)

Extra Valor Awards Banquet Ticket: $75
This meal is already included in the Member, Non-Member and Spouse/Guest full conference registration fees.

Cancellation Policy:
Conference registrations cancelled on or after September 1st are non-refundable. Unfortuantely, this also applies to any unforseen emergency. The VACP must provide a headcount for attendees and it cannot be reduced after this date, therefore the VACP will still incur charges regardless of the registrant's attendance. If a registrant is unable to attend and the deadline has passed for a refundable cancellation, we will accept an alternate attendee from the same agency in their place.

Exhibitor Information

The 2017 VACP Annual Conference Exhibit Show will be held September 18th during the VACP Annual Conference. Each year our conference consists of approximately 150 attendees representing various police departments from around the state.  We hope to see you in Roanoke!

Exhibitor Registration:

The Exhibit Hall has SOLD OUT of Commercial Exhibitor Booths for the 2017 VACP Annual Conference. However, we do have a few remaining slots for non-profit exhibitors. Contact Audrey Altovilla at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to inquire about a non-profit booth space or to be placed on the waiting list for a commercial booth space.

Cancellation Policy:
Cancellation of exhibit participation must be made by September 1, 2017, at which time all registration fees less a $50 processing fee will be refunded to the exhibitor. No refund will be made if the exhibitor fails to notify the VACP of the cancellation or if cancellation is made after September 1st.


Exhibitor Partnership Fees:

Commercial Exhibitor Partnership: $1000 per booth (with 2 personnel) ; $250 per additional booth personnel

Non-Profit Exhibitors: Contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) (804-285-8227) for availability of space and fee. (Non-profit exhibitors are ineligible to participate in the "QUICK PITCH" session.)

About the Partnership Fees —
Fees include the following:

  • Booth space (10x10 space with table & chairs in carpeted area. Details below.)
  • "QUICK PITCH" session, for commercial exhibitors only (See below.)
  • Delegate bag insert.*
  • Monday’s breakfast, breaks, and lunch for two exhibitors per booth. (Additional personnel may be registered for $250/each.)
    NOTE: ALL EXHIBIT PERSONNEL MUST BE REGISTERED AND RECEIVE A NAME BADGE TO ENTER THE EXHIBIT HALL.

What is “QUICK PITCH”?
The exhibitor portion of the conference will run similar to how it has in past years with the addition of the “Quick Pitch” session.  The “Quick Pitch” will not be held in the exhibit hall; instead, it will be held in the training room.  There will be 30 tables with 5-6 attendees seated at each.  You will have 2-3 minutes to speak about your product/services.  When you hear the bell ring you will move to the next table.  It’s very important that you move as quickly as possible to ensure you have enough time to get around to each table.  This session isn’t a time to answer questions or discuss topics with the chiefs — it’s a time to “pitch” your services and ask them to visit you at your booth.  Our hope is that this session draws interest to the attendees so they will visit you during breaks and assigned times in the exhibit hall to discuss your products/services in detail.

Tuesday Night Valor Awards Banquet Tickets: $100 / each

Non-Exhibiting Company Registration Bag Inserts (1 per bag): $50 / each *
If you are unable to exhibit in person, we will insert your company information into each delegate bag for $50 per insert.

* Please send 200 copies of your brochure/flyer by September 1, 2017 to VACP, 880 Technology Park Drive, Suite 100, Glen Allen, VA 23059 so that they may be placed in the delegate bags.
