Police Security Expo to Remain in Atlantic City

The Police Security Expo will remain in Atlantic City Convention Center for the next three years.

Also known as the Industry SuperShow, the expo features the latest products, services and technological within the industry. Items range from flashlights to uniforms, transport vehicles, forcible entry tools, weapons, crime scene investigation aids, wireless services and digital cameras. It has been held in Atlantic City since 1987.

“Meet AC is thrilled that the Police Security Expo has elected to remain with us here in Atlantic City through 2018,” says Jim Wood, president/CEO, Meet AC. “The convention industry has a tremendous impact on Atlantic City’s economy as evidenced by the tremendous impact the Police Security Expo will have on our local hotels, restaurants, retail outlets and casinos each year.”

More than 6,500 attendees visit the city during the expo annually bringing in more than 3,000 rooms. The estimated economic impact is expected to be more than $4.2 million annually

“We are delighted to remain in Atlantic City through 2018. We are very pleased by the overall professionalism of the Meet AC team and Atlantic City Convention Center staff while they have been amazing partners in our convention planning process,” says Miles Watkins, coordinator for the Police Security Expo. “Since one quarter of the nation’s largest population base resides within 300 miles of Atlantic City, this premier destination is the perfect location for attracting industry professionals charged with the responsibility of securing their communities and businesses, while protecting themselves on the job.”

The Minnesota State Fair is essentially a red carpet event for Minnesotans. That is, if red carpet events include food that is either fried, on a stick, or both. To celebrate the great love that Minnesotans have for their state, Radisson Blu Mall of America is offering state fair-themed meetings.

 

Red Wing has, “a beautiful and quaint small river feel with a lot to do and a lot to see,” says Brittany O’Neill, director of sales and events for Red Wing Golf Course. “Red Wing provides a great change of scenery with something for everyone. Hiking, biking, shopping, dining and, of course, golf!” 

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
