Media Resources

Registration is open for media wishing to attend and cover PMA’s 2019 Foodservice Conference & Expo. 

To maximize quality coverage, our PR team is ready to connect you with exhibitors, staff, volunteer leaders, buyers and influencers in this space.

Get ready for two powerhouse keynotes, two floors of exhibits, and more than 200 companies showcasing products, services and innovations in foodservice. Be sure to check out our new first-timer pavilion with more than 20 new exhibitors. And don’t forget the Center for Growing Talent fundraising events, including bocce, golf and the 5K. There are lots of great sights, sounds, tastes and compelling stories to tell. We’re here to help. 

Media should contact Cassidy Taylor, PR Coordinator, to register and get on our list for ongoing press updates and media tips. 

Who is eligible for a complimentary press badge?

Members of the produce and foodservice trade media, local and national consumer press, and established bloggers who regularly cover produce, foodservice, and food in culture can request press credentials for access to educational sessions, innovation stations, and exhibit halls. 

You must have an editorial role with a well-established news media outlet that publishes original content. Eligible media include writers, video crews, and photographers. PMA will review specialty publications on a case-by-case basis.  

By accepting a press pass, you agree to produce and publish original content about the conference, exhibitors, products, innovations and/or trends. We reserve the right to deny press credentials.  

Advertising, marketing, and sales representatives, publishers, and other noneditorial media outlet staff will not be granted press badges.
