    That about wraps it.

    Now that's what you call "getting it straight from the horse's mouth."

    Protective Security Conference

    I just read the posts about Varro Press and the Protective Security Conference (PSC).

    Varro Press has been in business since the late 1980's. We founded TREXPO and operated it until Bobit Business Media bought it in 2001.

    We publish security and law enforcement books and have launched this new conference: the Protective Security Conference.

    There seems to be some confusion about our url. "Buildasitefactory" is the website content application we use. Believe me, it's not free. We paid to have the site developed and pay every month for hosting. You can access our website directly at www.varropress.com. I am not trying to sell you anything in this post, merely clarify any misunderstandings about our company and our new conference.

    The conference is legit. Contact any of the speakers if you doubt my word.

    Varro has no connection with Cygnus today. Cygnus was a media sponsor for TREXPO. They have some good law enforcement magazines. I have no opinion about any of their expos or conferences as I have never attended one.

    We do have a contract with the Tremont Plaza Hotel for the PSC. Call Amy O'Connell, Sales Manager to confirm this.

    Any other questions, call me anytime. I'd be happy to talk with you.

    Harrisburg is home, so yeah, if I can get away from work, but March is "the Season" in Palm Beach and getting away from work probably isn't possible. We'll see.

    What was it again, $750 pre? That is definately administrator or "I've just made a couple hundred k off an Iraq deployment" level.

    10/4. For what ever reason, it looks like Varro Press is using free web hosting. Not the best business strategy if you ask me, but the conference is legitimate, as far as that goes. It is a lot of money to spend for a couple of days of seminars and speakers. It looks more like it is geared to corporate decision makers who are looking at EP than working professionals.

    Just to clear that up. Nonononono...

    Cygnus Public Safety was listed as a sponsor for some conference that used free web hosting. Cygnus Public Safety has never heard of the conference, and neither had the hotel. In other words, it was a scam.

    Well Varro Press is at least as legitimate as Paladin Press and some of the speakers are tops in their field. I note Bob Oatman, Dr. Richard Kobetz and Tony Scotti. They aren't scammers. Maybe they are being scammed?

    Looks like a very interesting conference and networking opportunity.
