Our annual conference cannot be possible without the support of our sponsors. Please support our sponsors by checking out their website.
Sponsors come from a wide range of industries. These sponsors support our philosophy of open communication and exchange of ideas between training officers and agencies that use or desire to use the Field Training Officer Concept.
Sponsors are not required to attend the annual conference. If you desire to attend the annual conference, we have some information for you to review. See the Sponsor pamphlet or exhibitor manual for more information.
As a sponsor of NAFTO, you set the tone for thousands of law enforcement trainers throughout the country. Your sponsorship sends a message. Your product and services is important to their success and you are there to help and support them. Most importantly, it shows your support of NAFTO and Field Training Programs across the country. Thank you for supporting the National Association of Field Training Officers.
As our premier level sponsorship, Event Sponsors are provided with a unique and customizable benefit. Each event provides the opportunity for a vendor to address the attendees, post branding throughout appropriate area, and distribute material during the event. Additionally, Event Sponsors are provided a vendor table and are added to the website as is included in the Website and Table sponsors. Event Sponsors will work directly with our Vendor Liaison to create an experience tailored to their specific needs. We offer several opportunities for vendors to connect directly with our members:
Our annual awards banquet dinner is when NAFTO recognizes our membership through the presentations of awards for merit and accomplishment. The formal setting is a perfect opportunity to show your support to the law enforcement community. Recognition of sponsorship during opening ceremonies.
An important component of our conference is the ability to network. The hospitality suite is operated for several hours on each night of our conference and provides an environment where these valuable connections are made and strengthened. Recognition of sponsorship during opening ceremonies
This casual setting offers a great opportunity to review new products while our attendees enjoy a meal. Access to presentation A/V equipment is typically available, but not guaranteed based upon venue. Recognition of sponsorship during opening ceremonies.
After the first day of classes, the Night-in is a welcome shift in tone. Attendees are served light refreshments while our annual cornhole competition plays out. Recognition of sponsorship during opening ceremonies
A standard vendor table with face-to-face time with the most influential people from law enforcement, corrections, communications and EMS agencies from across the country. Banners or signage in the banquet area during lunch, a five minute presentation during our business meeting, your company logo on conference welcome packet, along with recognition at opening ceremonies.
This option allows you to place your company logo and website link on NAFTO’s Conference page and email.
Combine both benefits for a discounted price.
If you are unable to attend or staff a vendor table at the NAFTO conference, you may have advertisements at the conference or company information in our conference welcome packet.
Our website is a portal to our members and our classes. As the NAFTO Website Sponsor, vendors are provided the exclusive opportunity to place their logo (linked to a landing page of their choosing) on every page of our site. Additionally, artwork with the associated links are added to the course announcements sent to NAFTO membership throughout the year (minimum of quarterly). NAFTO offers annual contracts for our Website Sponsor for $2,500.
We recognize that logistics can make traditional sponsorship difficult for some sponsors. Show your support for the advancement of the law enforcement profession by donating goods or funds to help finance NAFTO events.
The simplest way to show your support is by way of donation. Donations are accepted in your name or on behalf of a public servant. Donations of $100 or more are recognized at our annual conference. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, your donations are tax deductible.
NAFTO recognizes that our members need the right gear to be their best. We happily accept donations of goods and services to be used as door prizes, raffle prizes or to include in our annual conference’s swag bag. Some product donations are also eligible for tax deductions.
