Dear Food Service Partner,

The Maryland School Nutrition Association invites you to discover the benefits of partnering with us for our 2023-2024 membership year. We are excited to offer many partnership opportunities including membership, advertising, exhibiting and sponsorships for our annual convention.

This year’s 2023 annual convention will be held at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on October 20-21, 2023. The theme is “Oceans of Opportunity in Child Nutrition”.  Please jump with us into these oceans to inspire more than 350 school food service professionals across the state of Maryland, including county supervisors, directors and buyers, at one of the lowest state show booth prices across the country.

Show hours will be Saturday, October 21st from 11:45 AM - 4:00 PM, Roland E. Powell Convention Center, 4001 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, Maryland 21842. Set up times are Friday, October 20th from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM and Saturday, October 21st, 8:45 AM – 11:45 AM.

We have an exciting format this year! A full day packed with an energizing keynote speaker, informative education sessions and of course a beautiful venue to showcase for our members the latest and greatest food and equipment! The convention will culminate with an evening of recognition and entertainment at an awards banquet at the Ocean City Convention Center! Each Sustaining Industry Member will receive one complimentary ticket; additional tickets will be available for purchase. You will be able to make the required RSVP on our website. Information on discounted hotel rooms will be found on our website as well. We hope you will join us as we embrace the Oceans of Opportunity in Child Nutrition.
