The 14th Annual Iowa Narcotics Officers Association (INOA) annual training conference will be held beginning on Tuesday, March 27th, 2018, and run through Thursday, March 29th, 2018. The conference will be held at the West Des Moines Marriott located at 1250 Jordan Creek Parkway, West Des Moines, IA. Our conference is an excellent opportunity for you to showcase your products and services to law enforcement personnel, prosecuting attorneys, and other members in associated career fields who will recommend, purchase, and use your products and services.
The 13th annual INOA Conference was held in late March, 2017, with approximately 249 members in attendance from Iowa, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Missouri, and Texas.
A vendor area will be open for display beginning on Monday, March 26th, 2018, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., in order to allow you to meet and display to INOA members as they arrive during the early registration period. (The vendor area will be open for setup by noon.) The vendor area will then reopen on Tuesday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 28th from 7:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Registration for conference attendees will continue on March 27th from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at which time the conference will begin. Training on Wednesday, March 28th, will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 5:00 p.m. Training on Thursday, March 29th will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will conclude before 4:00 p.m. You are welcome to stay on through the conclusion of the conference on Thursday, March 29th. The Vendor Room for this conference will be located directly next to our main conference meeting room. We plan on having refreshments located inside the vendor room during meeting breaks to draw conference attendees into the vendor area as well as handing out a “vendor punch card” to all conference attendees to be punched by attending vendors. (Please email your high quality logo so it can be applied to the punch card). The vendor room will also be secured when the vendor area closes. This will allow for the vendors to leave their display areas set overnight if they desire.
Again this year, we will add to the INOA website a link to all vendors’ websites. Your link from our INOA website (www.iowanarcs.com) will be added following the conference. If you have the opportunity and the time, please take a few minutes to visit our website. Also note that this information is available under the Vendors tab.
As our way of trying to help you help us, we have continued the cost for an exhibition space at the 2018 INOA Training Conference at $100 per table. Electricity is available, however, you will be required to supply your own extension cords, multi plug connectors, or any other specialized equipment that you will need. Vendor spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. This rate is available until 03-01-18. Special room rates for INOA Conference attendees are $102 per night (single/double). Room reservations can be made by calling the West Des Moines Marriott at (515) 267-1500.
We would also like to invite you to join us in our hospitality room following registration on Monday and after the conclusion of training on both Tuesday and Wednesday. There is an opportunity to sponsor or co-sponsor the hospitality room, as well. Throughout the conference, INOA will be having door prizes and drawings. We would greatly appreciate your generous contributions toward this effort, which also provides yet another opportunity to promote your company, products, and services. All forms of contributions to INOA will be appropriately recognized.
If you have joined us in the past, we certainly hope that you will join us again in 2018. If you have never been with us, we certainly hope that you will take this opportunity to join us for the first time. Please complete the attached/enclosed registration and return it with your payment to INOA, C/O the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, 215 E. 7th Street, Des Moines, IA, 50319, no later than March 1st, 2018, in order to be listed in our conference directory. Registration fees are non refundable after March 1st. If you have any questions, please contact me via telephone or e-mail. Thank you in advance for your support.
