"NASC, through its Marketplace, has been directly responsible for us obtaining hosts for three of our Can-Am Police-Fire Games. We attend other conferences, however, the NASC Marketplace has been the most productive for us. The 2010 Marketplace in Columbus, Ohio generated at least five cities that may bid on our Games in 2016. We will continue to be active members even when we do not have Games up for bid."
