Laughlin Vendor Information Page

Information for all vendors and sponsors for the Laughlin Training and Vendor Expo - October 26-28, 2021

Join us at the fabulous Edgewater Resort & Casino, Laughlin, Nevada

Special Speaker/Quiet Time: There is a special speaker this year for the opening ceremony. It is imperative that your attendees be in the E-Center and have booths set up by 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 27, 2021. We recommend booth setup on Tuesday afternoon and have extended the hours of setup for your convenience for those that wish to setup earlier. We invite all vendor attendees to join the AACOP attendees for this special presentation. Additionally, we ask that those still on the vendor floor honor our request for “quiet time” so that it does not interfere with the speaker’s presentation.

For your convenience we have created a “To Do List” to ensure you don’t miss a thing!
