Exhibitor Registration & Housing Opens in January 2013: The Online Exhibitor Registration will open on the SNA website in January 2013. SNA has planned an outstanding series of education sessions and General Sessions. We encourage you to attend these sessions and learn more about the child nutrition industry. Each company receives five (5) complimentary badges per 10x10 booth space purchased. Once your company goes over their badge allotment, there is a $75 fee for additional badges. No badges, above your allotment will be processed without payment. Online registration allows you to make changes and additions to your badge order up until the time the site closes on Friday, June 28, 2013.(Badges will not be mailed, but available for pick up onsite at the registration desk at the Kansas City Convention Center).
No one under 16 years of age is permitted into the Exhibit Hall or on the Loading Docks at any time – no exceptions! This includes family members, as well as booth character personnel and applies during installation, dismantling and on exposition days (July 15 – July 17, 2013). No exceptions will be made.
This Conference Badge is for Exhibitors only! False certification of individuals as Exhibitor representatives, misuse of Exhibitor badges, or any method or device used to assist unauthorized persons to gain admission to the conference shall be cause for expelling the violators from the exhibit hall.
School nutrition professionals cannot register as an Exhibitor. If your organization is sponsoring a foodservice professional, please complete the Foodservice Attendee Registration form. If a company registers a school nutrition professional, the attendee will not receive their CEUs, tickets to special events and SNA will issue an invoice.
