Welcome to the Exhibitors Section of the NYSSMA Website! Here you will find information about exhibiting at our summer conference in Albany and our winter conference in Rochester, Institutional Membership in NYSSMA and our winter conference showcases.
Our winter conference has been held in Rochester, NY for the past 20 years and utilizes the Joseph A. Florenano Rochester Riverside Convention Center and the four adjoining hotels (Hyatt, Radisson, Holiday Inn Downtown and Hilton Garden).. Our All-State concert is held at the Eastman Theatre. We typically have up to 160 booths in the convention center that represent all phases of music education as well as many colleges from all over the country. The conference draws up to 2000 music educators (in-service, retired and collegiate), 890 All-State high school students (juniors & seniors), 2000+ music parents and several hundred members of groups performing at the conference. Exhibitor registration for the winter conference, including showcase applications, begins in February. The winter conference always begins on the Thursday following Thanksgiving Day (i.e.. 1 week later). The exhibits are open all day on Friday and until 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Our summer conference is currently held in Albany, NY in mid-August. It is co-sponsored by the New York Chapters of the ACDA, ASTA, NYSBDA, NYSCAME as well as NYSSMA. The conference is held at the Hilton Albany hotel downtown. It is a more low-key event, generally drawing about 400 people as well as two ACDA sponsored children’s honor choirs. Exhibits are tables, rather than booths with approximately 20 – 30 tables. Information will be available in mid spring.
Advertising is also available in the winter conference program as well as in the annual NYSSMA Directory (spring).
