2022 FMEA Professional Development Conference

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at the FMEA Professional Development Conference. The FMEA conference is host to 22 All-State Ensembles including Bands, Orchestras, Choruses, Guitar, and Orff at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. More than 10,000 music educators, music supervisors, musicians, college students, school administrators, students, and their parents will be in attendance. During the 2020 Conference, there were more than 300 seminars, workshops, meetings, and concerts. 

Pricing: See our Media Kit or the Exhibitor Information Packet below for booth pricing and information

Exhibitor Information Packet 2022 - Includes important information, dates, rules, and regulations.


Credit/Transfer from the canceled 2021 conference: When we canceled the in-person 2021 conference, we emailed all exhibitors giving them the option to move their reservation to the 2022 conference with the guarantee of maintaining their existing booth location for 2022. If you have not yet transferred your reservation from 2021 to 2022, you have until April 1, 2021. At that time we will start releasing those booths to new exhibitors. Use the sign-up link below or email

Normally, a deposit of $100 per 10’x10’ booth is due on March 1, but if you transferred your deposit from the canceled 2021 conference, or if you transferred your 2021 deposit to our Virtual Conference, no additional deposit is required at this time. Full payment will be due on November 15, 2021.

Warning! Scams!

We post a list of our exhibitors on our website and mobile app to encourage our members to support your business. We believe scammers are using this to contact our exhibitors claiming to offer reduced hotel rates or attendee contact lists for the conference. There is no travel agency or other third party that has permission to solicit you on behalf of FMEA. All exhibitors should reserve hotel rooms only by using the official Hotel Reservation Request Form. Do not give any information to anyone who contacts you directly. 

Please notify your corporate office if they are responsible for booking travel. 

Also, WE DO NOT SELL CONFERENCE ATTENDEE LISTS as it is against the FMEA privacy policy. If anyone contacts you offering to sell you a list of conference attendees' contact information, this is a scam and they will most likely provide you with inaccurate publicly available data claiming it is something that it is not. 

If you would like your company removed from our website and mobile app, please contact our Director of I.T. at
