The Texas Chapters of APCO and NENA are excited to announce the Annual Conference to be held at the Galveston Island Convention Center March 31 – April 3, 2019 in Galveston, TX.

Industry Partners are a vital part of the 9-1-1 Community. Here in Texas we appreciate and acknowledge the leadership and support our Industry Partners provide us. This annual conference provides a perfect opportunity for you to present your 9-1-1 industry solutions to the many 9-1-1 professionals in attendance. We anticipate strong industry support and encourage early registration. Again, this year, we have online registration for our Industry Partners. You will be able to register online and download forms and other vital conference information. We have selected Shepherd Exhibitor Services as our contractor for the conference.

Booth prices this year are:

10×20- $1,500

10×30- $2,000

The Convention Center will route one electrical outlet to each booth, per our contract.  Should you require more than one, you will need to contact the Convention Center to set it up for your particular booth.

Your booth comes with one (1) full complimentary registration. If you have other booth representatives you wish to have full access, they will need to be registered as well. This can be done through registration beforehand or at the desk upon arrival. Entry to the IP hall will not be granted to those without a registration badge.

We have heard your comments on our surveys and this year exhibitors will have additional time with conference attendees as we have adjusted our IP Hall hours to accommodate your needs.
