California Academy Partnerships

CANDAC21 Sponsorship Opportunities

The California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Annual Conference (CANDAC) is the premier conference for food and nutrition professionals in California. The annual event attracts an audience of 1000 professionals from throughout California and beyond. The program provides education sessions focused on the practical application of research, insights into emerging research and trends, exposure to new products and services, awards and recognition for members from various practice areas, special sessions for students, and networking opportunities—all essential for advancing careers.

Sponsoring Education Sessions at the Annual Conference

The California Academy uses an RFP (Request for Proposal) process to solicit proposals for all education sessions for our conference. Companies and organizations that have cutting edge research information to share with our conference attendees are encouraged to submit a session proposal, noting that the session will be sponsored by your company or organization. We accept proposals for virtual attendees with both large scale audience and smaller interactive experiences.

The Executive Director will work with sponsors to create a package reviewed by the Conference Planning Committee and approved.
