Wake Up Like a Warrior!

YOUR MISSION: Wake up like a warrior on the second day of Warrior Expo West.

After a jam-packed successful day one of Warrior, participating sponsors would like to say thank you with refreshing beverages. This morning networking event was a huge crowd pleaser at Warrior Expo East 2016 and is expected to be a fan favorite.

Walk away with a free permanent Solo cup, thanks to our sponsors: Wild Things, Eastern Marketing Associates (EMA), American Technologies Network (ATN), and Field Forensics/FFI Tactical.

Refresh & Recharge Station

Also new to this year: Our Refresh & Recharge Station will offer exhibitors, attendees, and media alike a place to charge their phone or laptop and just take a break.

While the station is open all day, coffee and refreshments will be served both mornings of Warrior Expo West, thanks to our participating sponsors.

YOUR MISSION: Sit back and sip a cup o' joe while you plan their day in a high traffic area of the show floor.
