The 2016 Annual Conference and Exhibition of the Mid-Atlantic Association of College & University Housing Officers (MACUHO) will be held this year at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The conference will run November 7, 2016 through November 9, 2016. Exhibits will take place on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. We are aware that this is the same day at the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, but in hopes of helping you prepare, please refer to our website for information on absentee ballots.
Approximately 325 professionals representing some 60 colleges and university housing and residence life programs from Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, New Jersey and the District of Columbia will be in attendance. Additional information concerning MACUHO may be viewed online at www.macuho.org.
Exhibitor registration is OPEN and can be completed online HERE. Payment can be made online when submitting your registration or by check/money order made out to MACUHO.

Registering as a Delegate
Registering as an exhibitor is not the same as registering as a delegate. Exhibitors have access to the exhibit area, and are invited to the Committee and Exhibitor Expo and Exhibitor Luncheon. If you or any member of your organization would like to attend programs, meals and other events for delegates, you must register as a delegate. This can be done by visiting the MACUHO website when conference registration is open.
Exhibitor Promotional Opportunities
MACUHO is excited to offer new sponsorship opportunities. The Corporate Partners Program offers partnership levels that we hope will better meet your promotional needs. Information and details can be found on our websiteHERE. For additional information and questions about our Corporate Partner Program, please contact Siobhan Skerritt.
Traditional conference sponsorship opportunities remain and the Host 2016 committee welcomes your support for a number of events and activities at the conference. This is an excellent way to enhance your name recognition with our delegates. Your sponsorship of activities helps make the conference possible. If you are interested in sponsoring, please use our Sponsorship Portal here. If you have any further questions about conference sponsorships please contact Sarah Yencha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As in previous years, we ask exhibitors for a small prize donation for a raffle conducted at the end of the conference. All MACUHO conference delegates participate in the drawing. Past donations have included imprinted promotional items (i.e. shirts, mugs), small gift certificates, or products (i.e. trials, samples, displays). These items DO NOT need to be mailed in advance and should be submitted during exhibitor check-in. Please confirm during the registration process if you plan to participate in the Conference Raffle.
All exhibitors are invited to the Committee Expo and Exhibitor Reception at 5:30 pm on Monday, November 7th. In addition, a Recognition Dinner is scheduled on Wednesday (11/8) 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm. Tickets must be purchased separately for the Recognition Dinner. For our Gold Corporate Partners, please consider joining us for the CHO/Vendor Reception and Recognition Dinner at the end of your exhibition day (by invitation only).
After you have completed the registration process, I will send you an exhibitor’s packet containing everything you will need to prepare for this year’s conference. The following items will be included in the exhibitor’s packet:
- Conference Overview and other special information for Exhibitors
- Hotel information for room reservation.
- Exhibit Hall Blueprint with booth configuration
We sincerely hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to connect with so many new and experienced housing professionals in our area. If you have any question about the information reflected in this packet, or any aspect of the MACUHO organization, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me as indicated below. We look forward to seeing you in November.
