86th MMEA In-Service Workshop/Conference

“A Drop In The Bucket: The Ripple Effect Of Missouri Music Education”

January 22-27, 2024

Tan-Tar-A Conference Center





New This Year!

Beginning in 2024, the MMEA Annual In-Service Workshop/Conference will be expanded to allow for additional, content-specific, offerings to our membership.

The 86th Annual MMEA Conference will begin on Monday, January 22, 2024, and will conclude with the performance of our MMEA Affiliate All-State Ensembles on Saturday, January 27, 2024.

Conference offerings will begin with a focus on Early Childhood/Elementary and K-12 sessions beginning on Monday evening and continuing through the MMEA All-State Children’s Choir performance on Wednesday afternoon.  In keeping with tradition, the conference will continue with the “President’s Concert” on Wednesday evening and continue through Saturday afternoon.


How does this affect exhibitors?

The MMEA exhibitor component of the conference will remain in place as in year’s past.  Exhibits will be located in Windgate Hall and will be open for our conference attendees Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning. 


Additional Opportunity!

Beginning in 2024, an additional opportunity for exhibitors will be included for the new Elementary/K-12 expansion of the conference.  We will include an exhibit area to include 20 exhibit tables that will be located next to the main conference session rooms in the “Paradise” salons. 

*NOTE:  Dedicated exhibit time will be built-in to the conference schedule on Tuesday and Wednesday.

We are hopeful that these exhibitors will have a primary focus in providing resources for elementary education teachers.  The selected exhibitors will be available to our attendees beginning Tuesday morning and continuing through Wednesday at noon. (A detailed exhibit schedule will be determined upon finalizing the conference schedule.)


Can vendors exhibit for both the elementary (first) portion and the second portion of the conference?

YES!  If an exhibitor is selected to exhibit during the first portion of the conference and wishes to exhibit for both portions of the conference, they will re-locate from the salon area (Tuesday/Wednesday) to the exhibit hall (Thursday-Saturday).

An Offer for our Inaugural Year

Any vendor that wishes to exhibit for both the 1st and 2nd portions of the conference (Tuesday-Saturday) will receive a complimentary rate of NO EXHIBIT FEE for the 1st portion of the conference.  Only the Display rates for the exhibit hall (Thursday-Saturday) portion will apply.
