Exhibitors are welcome and encouraged to participate in our sporting events and certainly invited to join our Adjutant General, Major General Durr Boyles, at the Friday night Opening Ceremony, Exhibitor Hall Ribbon Cutting and Social.

Further, the sporting events and Friday Night Hospitality Night gives you so much more time with our attendees which includes officers of all ranks from Mississippi to include our senior officers.  However we have also invited our senior enlisted leadership, senior delegations from other states, and federal and state leadership.  A complete listing will follow as the conference nears.  In sum, not only are you going to be exposed to so many more leaders you will have another several hours of floor time with those leaders.

Even better, you get a front row seat to the biggest party on this side of Hollywood.  So bring your favorite costume from your favorite movie!  We will even roll out the red carpet!

Things kick off at 6:00 pm in Exhibitor Hall at the Refuge Convention Center with food from all parts of our great state of Mississippi followed by the biggest band from New Orleans MoJEAUX! playing right outside our exhibit hall until late in the night.  It’s going to be an “star studded” good time.
