Cincinnati's Flying Cross and Vertx Brands Sponsor the 61st National FOP Convention in Cincinnati, OH Starting August 11-August 15
Cincinnati’s hometown uniform-manufacturer Flying Cross, as well as brother brand Vertx, are honored to be sponsoring the FOP Convention and Expo this upcoming weekend
Cincinnati, Oh.- When thinking of police uniforms and police conventions, you may not automatically think of the Queen City. However, the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) saw something really special in Cincinnati: Cincinnati’s honorary quality uniform manufacturer Flying Cross, who has been making police uniforms for over 170 years.
This year Cincinnati’s own Flying Cross Uniforms, and brother brand Vertx, have been chosen to sponsor several events at the 61st National FOP Conference and Expo at the Duke Convention Center located in Downtown, Cincinnati, starting Sunday, August 11 and wrapping up through Wednesday, August 15.
The FOP is the world’s largest National organization of sworn law enforcement officials, with more than 325,000 current members, in more than 2,100 lodges around the country. The National Conference is held every two years by the FOP, and law enforcement officials from all over the country are expected to attend to the Convention.
On Sunday, FOP members have a choice to go a Reds Game or to a golf outing at Aston Oaks Golf Course in Cincinnati. Flying Cross and Vertx will be at the golf outing in full spirit, followed by a Beer Garden extravaganza later Sunday afternoon.
“We are so honored to be able to host such a memorable and influential event for officers who wear our uniforms. They are the reason why our business has been around since 1842, and we couldn’t be happier to put on such an amazing week for them,” said Bob Getto, CEO of Fechheimer Brothers, manufacturer of Flying Cross Uniforms and Vertx.
On Tuesday evening, a fun, family-filled evening is scheduled for members of the FOP and their families to head to the Cincinnati Zoo to listen to a live band and eat great food.
“It was important for us to support a family event in a big way. The Zoo is fun for everyone. We are thrilled to be able to take part in it,” said Allen McCormick, VP of Marketing, Fechheimer Brothers.
