Maximize your investments in South Carolina.

The South Carolina Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics will host its 47th Annual Meeting in April 26-27, 2017 in Columbia, SC. We are anticipating record attendance at this year’s Annual Meeting. You will want to take advantage of this special opportunity to feature your company or organization, and what you have to offer to dietitians from across the state. As an Annual Meeting exhibitor and/or sponsor, you will maximize your presence and investments.

As an exhibitor you can:

  •  Showcase your company’s products and/or services to dietitians and decision makers.
  •  Build connections with existing and potential customers.
  •  Receive a contact list of registered Annual Meeting attendees.

Support and grow your loyal customer base.

SCAND offers many sponsorship opportunities as listed in this registration packet. Sponsorships at every level help to make the Annual Meeting a reality. The Annual Meeting, in turn, brings into one place a significant group of professionals who make up your customer base.

Sponsorships provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Increase the visibility of your company and brand at the Annual Meeting beyond the exhibitor booth.
  • Show support for the South Carolina nutrition and dietetic community.
  •  Give back to those who have made investments in your products and services.
