MdSNA offers to our industry partners a 3-tiered approach to supporting child nutrition in Maryland:
Exhibit Opportunity at Annual Trade Show
Advertising in Association Publications
*** PLEASE NOTE: AS OF JULY 2, 2018, ALL BOOTHS ARE SOLD OUT. ***
Please contact Exhibit Co-Chair Mike Birkmeyer, with questions, to put your name on a waitlist or to get on our mailing list for next year.
We are still accepting annual memberships and advertisements for our quarterly publication.
See below for description of each category and information to participate.
Your annual membership gives you a voice with the Industry Group that provides input to MdSNA's Executive Board. It also entitles you to receive our quarterly magazine, the Serving Spoon, which will keep you informed about association activities, legislative issues, and more. When purchased as part of a Gold, Silver or Bronze membership package, your membership will also earn you discounted booth fees for our annual convention. For more information, contact Industry Chair Barbara Harral.
Exhibit at our Annual Convention
As an exhibitor at our annual convention, you will be able to showcase your products to 500 school food service employees from across Maryland.
It's easy to register for booth space.
If you are an exhibitor, please take a moment to review the Application & Contract for Exhibit Space before completing your form.
Would you like to highlight your products and services for the people who purchase, prepare and serve approximately 63 million school lunches and 16 million breakfasts each year in Maryland? The Maryland School Nutrition Association (MdSNA) can help you do just that, through advertising in our quarterly magazine, the Serving Spoon, and in our annual convention program.
