NAMSC / IMSI Annual Convention



    The Minnesota Maple Syrup Producers' Association is excited to host the NAMSC-IMSI convention in Duluth, MN, from October 21-24, 2019. The event will be held at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (the DECC) overlooking the Lake Superior harbor. Maple producers, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, researchers, educators and other professionals from all across North America will meet at the DECC.

    The event will include the joint annual meetings of the two leading international maple organizations: North American Maple Syrup Council (NAMSC) and the International Maple Syrup Institute (IMSI). These two organizations will be represented by members from over 20 U.S. states and Canadian provinces where maple syrup is produced on a commercial scale.

    The convention will include a trade show featuring the latest maple industry products, equipment, supplies and services. Technical sessions highlighting current research initiatives will be presented, as well as educational workshops for producers and other industry professionals. Plans include workshop sessions specifically aimed at both small and large maple operations. In addition, the highly acclaimed IMSI Maple Grading School for experienced sugar makers will cap off “Maple Week” in Duluth.

    There will be competitions in maple syrup and confections, as well as a photo contest, so be sure to enter your best products and photos into these contests.

    Thursday tours will include nearby sugar houses and other fascinating points of interest.
