WSATI is a professional organization comprised of law enforcement auto theft investigators (both active and retired), special investigative unit members of the insurance industry, special agents of the National Insurance Crime Bureau, and other interested investigative units. The mission of the organization is to stimulate the investigation and prevention of auto theft, vehicle arson and insurance fraud involving vehicles; to identify and apprehend the persons responsible for such crimes; and to provide education and training to our members in furtherance of these goals.

The 45th Annual WSATI Training Seminar is scheduled for October 1st through October 4th, 2017. The seminar will be held at the MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada. In addition to California members, these seminars are normally attended by WSATI members from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Hawaii, as well as international affiliates from Canada and Mexico. We anticipate 250-300 persons will be in attendance at this year's seminar. 

I would like to extend an invitation to your company to participate in the seminar as a vendor. A display area for vendors has been reserved, adjacent to the main conference rooms, affording excellent access to seminar participants.

Rates for larger vendor/exhibitor areas are negotiable. Vendors will exhibit on Monday October 2nd and Tuesday October 3rd.
