Upcoming KEMA Conference

2021 KEMA Conference

exhibit days: Sept. 15-16, 2021
kansas star event center, mulvane, 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 2021.

At our new location at the Kansas Star Event Center in Mulvane, Kansas, we are able to have all exhibitors, vehicles, and equipment in one large space to maximize traffic flow for our exhibitors. The exhibit hall will open on Wednesday, September 15 at 10 am and will run until around 1:00 pm on Thursday, Sept. 16. The breaks and lunch for the conference attendees will take place in the exhibit hall, giving the attendees ample time to visit with the vendors.

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!
