23rd Annual Snow & Ice Symposium
 
SIMA Symposium-The Best Show in Snow

On Location: Hartford

Connecticut Convention Center
100 Columbus Blvd
Hartford, CT 06103

Fascinating attractions, great entertainment choices, New England beauty and charm - Hartford has it all; it’s the perfect destination for our annual show! The Bradley International Airport (BDL) is 15 miles from downtown and serves nine major airlines, offering nonstop access to 30+ popular destinations.

Hartford will be packed this June as we bring all the equipment, education and networking opportunities to the picturesque riverfront setting of the Connecticut Convention Center. This key location is adjacent to a downtown entertainment district featuring dining establishments, breweries, museums and baseball stadium, all within walking distance.

The trade show will be held in the Exhibit Hall. For easy access, enter from the Marriott, Esplanade outdoor walkway, or the main entrance off Columbus Boulevard.
