exhibitor info

become an exhibitor

Participating businesses are given a 10x10 booth area and 6-foot table to prepare, display, and serve product samples.  Volunteers are available throughout the event to help with setup and other needs.  Event partners are asked to provide sample portions for 600 guests as well as any preparation and serving supplies needed. You may hand out marketing/promotional materials, but no sales may take place during the event.


We rely on the generous support of local wineries, breweries, distilleries and restaurants and caterers to make this event great success.  If you would like to be a part of the 2019 CSUSM Taste for Student Success contact Anna Fleming at (760) 750-4406 or
