On Thursday, May 25, 2023, the Police Officers Association of Michigan (POAM) will hold its Annual Convention at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids. This function will have more than five hundred members in attendance, most of which hold leadership positions on their local executive boards. This is an excellent opportunity to advertise your business and build relationships in the Michigan police community as POAM Convention Vendors.

The cost of exhibitor’s space is $275. Arrangements will be made so you can set up your display on Thursday, May 25, between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., to meet with the membership during our continental breakfast and before the business meeting begins.

Our conference will end at approximately 3 p.m. Exhibitors may break down their displays on Thursday anytime before 7 p.m.
