Innovative Solutions Showcase

As a school nutrition professional, are you wondering how you will determine what new products, service, or pieces of equipment you will need for the upcoming school year, or perhaps even during the summer as you continue to feed kids during this pandemic? If so, you will not want to miss this opportunity to participate in up to ten industry presentations per week through SNA’s New Innovative Solutions Showcase. Registration is FREE for SNA members! The material is designed for managers and directors but all SNA Operator Members are welcome to participate.

The Innovative Solutions Showcase will be similar to the Innovative Solution Sessions we offer at the School Nutrition Industry Conference (SNIC); however, these will be offered virtually and like the Innovative Solution Sessions at SNIC, only operator members will be allowed to participate. (Additional industry reps from the presenting company will be allowed.)

We understand that school districts still need to place orders for product, services, and equipment not just for the upcoming school year, but to potentially meet the need of continuing to feed kids throughout the summer. The unique advantage of this format is you can be introduced to new products, services and equipment without having to travel far from home, as well as interact with the industry reps to ask any questions you might have.

How It Works 

Attention Industry: Interested in Participating?
We still have some slots open! Check out the exhibitor information or complete the online application form.

We will be offering up to 5 virtual industry presentations each day on Monday and Tuesday afternoons in 3-hour time blocks. We will be using the Zoom platform for this exciting opportunity, and after registering, you will receive a unique participation link. 

Each day there will be up to 5 different companies in each of four 30-minute time slots. 

But wait, there’s more! Each day of the Showcase, we will also be giving away a FREE registration to the virtual Fall Directors Best Practices Conference in October to one lucky attendee who attends all the sessions offered for that day. For more information, download the Sweepstakes Rules.
