In an effort to entice and keep hunters in the program, the Archangel of Trade proposed a yearly convention, similar in nature to the 8th Virtue of the Malakim. Held in the same convention hall every year, the World-Wide Warrior's Convention, as it has come to be known, is staffed almost exclusively by Malakim of Trade, the Sword, and War, and is often referred to as "The 9th Virtue" in angelic circles. Every demon hunter worth his salt makes an effort to be there for the convention, although hunters who operate in foreign climes often rely on angelic resources to attend.
Defense contractors and weapon manufacturers are often invited to present their latest products at the convention. Many do, attracting more than just demon hunters. As a result, the first two days of the convention are open to all comers -- the better to turn a profit, as Marc likes to say. The third and fourth days, however, are by invitation only.
On the third day of the Convention, the mundane presenters are quietly ushered out, and the angels of Lightning are brought in to show off their latest projects. While the average demon hunter will not be able to take advantage of a Holy Hand Grenade (such things needing at least a sixth Force), he will certainly be able to appreciate the next generation of plastic explosive. Michael's and Laurence's best teachers are also on hand to provide training for hunters seeking to hone their skills, while panel discussions provide new insights into the best way to kill infernals. These discussions continue into the fourth day, at the end of which everyone returns to work. (Some time ago, some angels of Flowers and Creation tried to set up a post-Convention celebration. Few hunters showed up, and subsequent parties were similarly ill-attended.)
