Create Added Visibility and Name Recognition
for Your Company, Products and Services

Sponsoring with NPA throughout the year and at the NPA Annual Meeting and World Pasta Congress gives you the opportunity to reach and interact with the NPA membership and other pasta industry members, as non-members are invited to attend the Annual Meeting and can participate in some webinars and educational opportunities. Your brand will gain exposure to numerous manufacturers and product/service providers while your company supports NPA. Availability of these cost-effective and high-impact sponsorship opportunities are limited, so don’t wait to become a sponsor!

Sponsorships are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. You can select and pay for your sponsorship online when registering for the meeting. Contact us with questions.
