Virtual #ANC21: What to Expect & FAQs

What to Expect

As with a live face-to-face event, SNA’s Virtual Annual National Conference (ANC) will take place over four days, Monday (pre-conference sessions and exhibit hall) through Thursday, July 12-15, 2021. We will be limiting our educational sessions to mostly afternoons (Eastern time zone) but the exhibit hall will be open all day each day. We are laser-focused on bringing you the same exceptional educational content, exhibits, events and opportunities to connect at ANC 2021 as we would for an in-person event. Please plan to enthusiastically participate!

As participants of ANC have come to expect, the virtual conference will continue to be the “School Nutrition Event of the Year,” with top-tier keynote speakers, a diverse offering of education featuring the hottest topics in school nutrition and pre-conference sessions, a full-scale virtual exhibit hall with the opportunity to watch culinary and product demonstrations as well as chat and book meetings with exhibitors, networking events and closing event entertainment. We have selected a highly robust virtual experience platform to deliver an event that is as close as possible to the real thing!
