'The 19th Annual Snow & Ice Symposium returns to Providence, RI, in June; and, for the first time in the show’s history, the Symposium will feature three pre-conference workshop options.'
By Kaitlyn Herbst
The pre-conference workshops presented at the Snow & Ice Symposium have evolved from generalized facility tours to more focused, snow-specific workshops. The demand and interest in these workshops has grown over the years, and SIMA has adapted to that demand by setting a mantra of “more, different, better” as we plan these events. The 19th Annual Snow & Ice Symposium returns to Providence, RI, in June; and, for the first time in the show’s history, the Symposium will feature three pre-conference workshop options. The pre-conference workshops will be on the fifth floor of the Rhode Island Convention Center on the morning of Wednesday, June 22:
- Sustainable Salt Use: SIMA has adopted sustainability as a core value. This workshop will help attendees become more efficient and effective in managing salt output while delivering quality service. 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
- Parking Deck Operations: As we grow as an association, we continue to focus on creating industry-specific training, including more offerings that focus on specialty areas. 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
- Equipment Safety & Maintenance: Safety is a key priority in our educational strategy. This workshop will connect many snow professionals to quality safety best practices. 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
The future of our pre-conference program is strong, and this year we aligned the workshops with our strategic educational initiatives. Offering an array of workshop choices will empower SIMA to build a stronger, better snow and ice workforce.

This year’s Symposium is shorter in length but jam-packed with educational and networking opportunities you won’t want to miss. We hope to see you on June 22-24 for the best show in snow.
