KEMA Conference Exhibitor Information

2024 KEMA Conference

exhibit days: Sept. 10-11, 2024
Hilton Garden Inn, Manhattan, ks

The Kansas Emergency Management Association (KEMA) is a not for profit organization made up of Emergency Managers and Emergency Professionals from the 105 counties across the state of Kansas plus personnel from state, federal, and volunteer agencies. KEMA has more than 240 active members and in the last several years, conference attendance has exceeded 200 attendees.

Many KEMA members are in charge of purchasing various pieces of emergency equipment, tools, warning systems, and other related services for their jurisdictions. Like in years past, our conference will give you an opportunity to display your product or service to these individuals, interact with them, and assist them in making informed purchase decisions.

Your presence as an exhibitor is a vital support for our organization and allows our members to keep current with the products available to them in their profession. We hope that you will continue to participate with us in 2024.

The 2024 conference will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, Manhattan, Kansas. This facility allows for all exhibitors, vehicles, and equipment to be housed in one large space to maximize traffic flow for our exhibitors. The exhibits will open on Tuesday, September 10 at 4 pm and will run until around 1:00 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 11. All vendors will be in the exhibition space with all meals and breaks to encourage attendee visits. KEMA reserves the right to assign booths based on registration information. 

We will offer a four-tiered sponsorship program that you may choose to utilize along with different sized booth options. Booth space is available on a first come first serve basis and booths are assigned once payment is received. Register early for the best spots!
