  • Conference Exhibition

    TJA offers many vendor opportunities at our two major annual conferences, the TJA Annual Conference and the Jail Management Issues (JMI) Conference. TJA conferences have high attendence rates and vendors have many chances to make contact with these attendees. These opportunities include:

    Exhibitor Booth
    Purchasing an exhibit booth will include three full conference registrations and a 6 foot draped table to set up in the conference Exhibit Hall. All breakfast and refreshment breaks will be held inside the Exhibit Hall. There will also be a reception and dedicated exhibition times to give all conference exhibitors plenty of opportunities to be exposed to conference attendees. All exhibitors are also welcome to attend all conference functions.

    Conference exhibitors or even those who are not able to attend also have the option of event sponsorship. These events may include receptions, entertainment, and refreshment breaks. Sponsors are given special recognition in the conference workbook and through large signage that will be present at the sponsored event.

    Door Prizes
    Door prizes are another great way to reach out to attendees without attending the conference.

    Conference Mobile App
    The mobile app is a new addition to TJA conferences, and a great opportunity to advertise even after the conference is over. Mobile sponsors have several options available, from displaying full page ads, logos, and messages through the attendees phone for as long as they own the app.

    Conference Activities
    Each TJA conference also holds conference activities, including golf tournaments and scavenger hunts. These activities differ, but offer unique sponsorship opportunities.
