With 300 vendors and 5,000 industry professionals, attendees are sure to have the resources to build confidence on their future purchaszes.
Who is the event intended for?
Mostly military, law enforcement, and first-responders attend, and come from all over the nation to gain familiarity with the products, since pamphlets sent to their offices only provide a limited description. Even though high-quality photos with specifications are sent to these clients, a tactile model is a true determinant for whether the purchase will be of any benefit to the client’s departments.
What was Showcased?
Along with physical models and representatives, many attendees were welcome to spectate lectures and participate in Q&A panels. Best of all, this Expo showcased a visit from Retired General Martin Dempsey, who has accumulated numerous combat hours during Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom and serve for 4 years as Army Chief of Staff under the Obama Administration. The attendees listened intently as he passed his wisdom on various subjects.
Notable vendors included:
Innovative Tactical Training Solutions (ITTS), who have been manufacturing physical defense simulators (manikins, ballistic gel, etc.), showcased a canine mockup that barks and even bleeds like a real dog! Onlookers were amazed at the level of detail that was put in to making this specimen.
Six15 Technologies showcased their new wearable headset that gives the operators access to thermal optic technology and remote camera angles.
