The New YorkState Maple Producers’ Association is proud to host the annual meetings of theNorth American Syrup Council (NAMSC) and the International Maple SyrupInstitute (IMSI) this year in the city of Niagara Falls, NY.
The event will be held in the convention center 1 block from the “8th wonder of the natural world” –mighty Niagara Falls. The Sheraton Hotel adjacent is the destination hotel. Bring your passport, because it is just a walk across the International Peace Bridge to the sister city of Niagara Falls, Canada.
This is a challenging year to be planning a live event, given the current uncertainty regarding travel and large gatherings. Our committee is working hard to plan a great experience for everyone, but no plans are firmly fixed yet other than the dates and the venue
Therefore we ask you to be patient. Registration will not be available until we are reasonably certain plans will not change. Check our website for updates:
We are working with the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute and NY food producers who are part of TASTE NY to plan some delicious eating, and the convention center will have room for a large trade show. The location in one of the tourist capitals of the world will provide us with many options for companion and attendee tours! And, yes, there are casinos on both sides of the border!
During this difficult time of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we hope you and your families are safe and healthy. The Wisconsin Maple Syrup Producer’s Association (WMSPA), NAMSC and IMSI have made a very difficult decision. We have decided, for the health and safety of convention attendees and uncertainties lying ahead of us, it is in everyone’s best interest to cancel the NAMSC/IMSI Convention October 21-24, 2020 in La Crosse, WI.
Massachusetts has so graciously offered to allow the WMSPA to take their spot in 2022, and hosts slated for 2023 and beyond have offered to advance one year. WMSPA is thankful for this opportunity and felt this would be the best approach, not knowing what each day brings.
