Spring Conference Series Industry Information

Join us for the National Association of College & University Food Services (NACUFS) 2023 Spring Conference Series (formerly referred to as Regional Conferences). 

As we continue to monitor the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and in response to the continued rise in COVID-19 infections across the country, NACUFS has made the decision to implement additional safeguards for the health and safety of attendees and exhibitors at all upcoming in-person conference experiences. Specifically, all participants will be required to attest that they are fully vaccinated or will be able to present a recent negative COVID-19 test to gain entry to conference activities. To read our Pandemic Protocol, click here.




NACUFS Showcase is your opportunity to introduce a new product, reacquaint customers with your existing products and services, and gain leads during this three-hour tradeshow.

2023 space applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please return your application with credit card information. We will notify you when the application is accepted and give you the date that the payment will be processed. Due to COVID-19, there may be changes to NACUFS normal setup requirements. Full information will be provided with the exhibitor kit that will be available after the first of the year. 

A pre-conference attendee list will be available to exhibitors but must be requested from the association office. A post-conference attendee list will automatically be sent to all exhibitors and sponsors in PDF format.
