The 2019 CATO Conference and Vendor Show take place this December in sunny San Diego, home to a variety of theme parks, attractions, beautiful beaches, and bustling nightlife. This year’s conference is jam-packed with debriefs from around the world, practical application tracts, leadership seminars, and several certification classes. Many classes take place in smaller rooms to allow attendees better access to the presenters and will take place more than once throughout the conference.

Our Vendor show coordinators have been working hard to find the latest in equipment and technology to help you accomplish the mission.

Our practical training classes are hands-on and designed to teach you the latest tactics and techniques presented by current tacticians with real-world experience. The leadership presentations were carefully selected to bring you lessons learned that can help attendees succeed during the mission and throughout their careers. A variety of debriefs from recent events that have taken place around the world will focus on lessons learned and current trends from officers who were involved in these situations.
