2020 Back to School & Statewide Chapter Meetings (Virtual Event)

Tuesday, October 20, 2020  2:00 - 4:30 pm

Like so many of your local school districts, this year's Back to School Event will be virtual!


The event will begin with a general session with two speakers from the front lines, DESE and SNA National, and followed by five breakout sessions, one for each of our chapters. Attendees will have ongoing access to this virtual event, recordings and vendor offerings, throughout the school year.

In today’s upended world, our members still need and want to connect with suppliers who can bring them new products, enhanced services, and solutions to better serve school meal programs. Now that we cannot gather in large groups or maybe even travel, this new platform gives us all a way to still connect. And now, without the cost of travel and time away from our businesses, we can connect many more of our school districts and members with you online.


How Can Your Company Participate?

This is a great opportunity to meet (virtually) with the buyers and decision-makers in the School Nutrition market. With this exclusive gathering of School Nutrition Professionals, your company will have the advantage in a competitive marketplace. The general session speakers will be highlighting the most recent information on the SN industry providing you insight into your customer's future needs. As an industry participant you will be able to attend the educational sessions.

This “marketplace” will be accessible through January 2021 and can be updated at any time. It will be promoted by SNA of Mass. as a marketplace for members and other school nutrition foodservice personnel to source products and equipment year-round. It will be tied to our training platform as well, so when attendees go back to review educational sessions, they will be encouraged to visit the marketplace pages again. Additional information about this exciting opportunity for SNA of Mass. Industry Members is available, click here.



  • Marketplace – Vendors will receive a page on the virtual platform for their materials, videos, chat room, etc. You will receive detailed instructions, tech support, and a link to set up their page (these pages must be in place by October 7)  The cost of a Marketplace listing is $325.
  • Vendor Spotlight – In addition to your Marketplace listing, we are offering two opportunities to address the attendees and introduce a session speaker for $400.The educational sessions will be recorded and accessible to attendees to review after the live event.
  • Your materials will stay posted and accessible through January 2021.Vendors can update their materials at any time. You will be able to send people a link to your page combining this with your other marketing efforts.
  • SNA members will have ongoing access to this information as they search for solutions during this challenging year. This will basically be a library of information in lieu of the fall food show.
  • Suggestions for postings include video with the products (how to prepare, package, deliver, reheat etc. in the video as well as posted documentation), promote those products that you know are available, etc.
