Great show! Merci!

Travel

We look forward to welcoming you to the 20th Annual Snow & Ice Symposium in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Montréal is the largest city in Québec and is predominantly french-speaking. However, most residents do speak English. It is a city rich in culture and summer is one of the best times to visit!

Montréal is only 46 miles from the US Border. It is 20 minutes from Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL). If you haven't already done so, make sure your passport is up-to-date to travel to Montréal. Most attendees only need a passport, but please take the time to read through entrance requirements and local laws that may affect your entrance, stay and departure from Canada. 


Hotels

If you are contacted from an agency, such as the Global Housing Services, asking you to book a room for the 20th Annual Snow & Ice Symposium, this is NOT associated with SIMA's room block, and we cannot guarantee the room being sold actually exists or is near the symposium. These agencies are referred to as poachers. We encourage you to reach out to our host hotel directly to safely book your reservation. Please contact the SIMA office to let us know if you are contacted by one of these agencies.
