The month of May kicked off with a host of conferences. Not the least of these events was the Rocky Mountain Tactical Team Association (RMTTA) Tactical Training Conference and Vendor Show, May 1st through 3rd. Hosted by the Douglas County Regional SWAT team of Colorado, it was Aftermath’s first time visiting the conference. Stephen Brown, Aftermath’s Senior Director Marketing and Sales, was on hand to answer questions and speak to attendees.
At the RMTTA
With over 400 members in attendance, the mood of the RMTTA Conference was positive and energetic. The vendor’s hall was only operated for a single day; featured events were hosted before and after. Attendees had both indoor breakouts and training sessions in the field. They seemed most excited about the breakouts; several top quality instructors were featured in the line up. 2-day tracks for professional certification included topics like Hostage Rescue, Team Leadership, and Night Vision.
Most conference goers were police officers or EMS personnel trained in tactical response. The RMTTA website explains that the organization “…is dedicated to fostering cooperation between tactical teams and for the sharing of knowledge of new product ideas and innovative training. The Association provides updated schedules and information for ongoing law enforcement training for teams, commanders, negotiators, emergency medical personnel and individual operators.”
Networking and Giveaways
Reflecting on the conference afterward, Stephen expressed that it gave Aftermath an opportunity to make new contacts and introduce them to the company in a low pressure setting where they could ask questions and learn more about crime scene cleanup: “Many of the attendees were not aware that Aftermath existed; when they learned what we do, they expressed appreciation for the services we provide.”
Aftermath also gave away two door prizes. Paramedic Dwane Monoya and Commander Rob McCoy both won a 5.11 tactical bags with PPE kits. With such great feedback, this certainly won’t be the only Colorado conference we’ll attend this year!
