Dear Food Service Partner,
MdSNA is pleased to announce that our annual fall exhibits trade show will be held in October with no Covid restrictions, per the Worcester County Health Department. We have been advised that our convention will be exactly as it was in the past. There will be the usual spacing between booths on the exhibit floor, cooking and providing food samples is allowable and there will be full interaction with attendees on the trade show floor. In other words, "Business as Usual".
The Maryland School Nutrition Association invites you to discover the benefits of partnering with us for our 2021-2022 membership year. We are excited to offer many partnership opportunities including membership, advertising, exhibiting and sponsoring slots for our fall convention.
This year’s 2021 annual convention will be held at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center on October 22-23, 2021. The theme is “Charting the New Course of Child Nutrition”. Please join us for this opportunity to inspire more than 350 school food service employees 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 23rd from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Roland E. Powell Convention Center, 4001 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, Maryland 21842. Set up times are Friday, October 22nd from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM and Saturday, October 23rd, 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM.
We have an exciting new format this year! A full day packed with an energizing keynote speaker, great education sessions and of course a great venue to showcase the latest and greatest food for our members. The convention culminates in a cocktail and hors d'oeuvre networking reception at a favorite Ocean City location, Seacrets! 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. A link for discounted hotel rooms will be found on our website too. We hope you will join us while we continue to Chart the New Course of Child Nutrition!
