Hospitality Room Sponsor
The GACP Hospitality Suite provides vendors with an opportunity to meet with law enforcement decision-makers in a more casual environment. Companies wishing to sponsor the Hospitality Suite would be responsible for staffing the room for the evening and for providing beverages and small snacks (i.e. potato chips, popcorn, pretzels, etc.) The Hospitality Suite is currently available for sponsorship from 6:00pm – 10:00pm on  Monday & Tuesday. Sponsors receive a sign acknowledging the sponsorship outside the suite and recognition in the conference program. 

Doorprize Sponsor
If you plan to collect business cards at your booth for a door prize, we ask that you take advantage of the time we have set aside for drawings. They will be held during the vendor networking break from 2:30pm-3:30pm on Monday. You will be allowed to use the microphone to speak about your company’s goods and services before drawing the winner from your collection of cards.

Please inform GACP staff members at the registration desk of your intent to participate. We have a limited amount of time for the drawing and need to plan accordingly. All prizes must be valued at $100 and up.  You will not be allowed to give away gifts of minimal value such as hats, mugs, pins, etc.

Lanyard Sponsor
Recognizing that personalized lanyards can be an extremely valuable promotional tool for your company, we are offering the opportunity to one exhibitor to display their business monogram on lanyards, which will be handed out to all conference attendees to attach their identification badges. Please see the pricing sheet for details on the cost for this sponsorship. The price for this sponsorship is printing fees and material costs.

Break Sponsor / Cookies & Coffee  
Take this unique opportunity to display your company name in a place where the attendees gather for refreshments. We have two networking breaks that are scheduled in the exhibit hall to encourage attendee/vendor interaction (2 sponsorships available). Breaks will be held on Monday, February 10th from 2:30-3:00pm and on Tuesday, February 11th from 2:00-3:00pm.  Break refreshments typically consist of coffee, tea, lemonade, cookies, and/or other small snacks.  Sponsors will be acknowledged through signage and in the mobile conference app.  The fee for this sponsorship is $1,000.


GACP Reception Sponsor 
Show your support in a big way while gaining recognition by sponsoring the GACP Reception. The reception will be held on Monday evening from 6:00-8:00pm and is an excellent event to mingle with the attendees and make vital connections with departments.  Since this is a larger function and includes a buffet of heavy hors d'oeuvres, the cost of co-sponsoring this event is $5,000 (3 sponsorships available).  Sponsors will be acknowledged through signage and in the mobile conference app.

Should you wish to take advantage of these unique marketing opportunities please contact the GACP at 770.495.9650.
