DUE TO COVID-19
June 4, 2020
SYTA Attendees and Friends:
After careful consideration, analysis, and discussion with our host city partners, Tourism Winnipeg and Travel Manitoba, SYTA Board of Directors and staff have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 SYTA Annual Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
We thank you for your patience as we navigate the complexities of this decision. We’re especially grateful to Tourism Winnipeg, Travel Manitoba and partners for their support and understanding through the decision process. We are excited to announce that Tourism Winnipeg and Travel Manitoba has graciously agreed to host our 2023 SYTA Annual Conference, taking place August 18 – 22.
Save the date for Monday, August 17, 2020! We are making plans for a virtual annual meeting, including education and connections, followed by Best of Broadway program. Business appointments will be scheduled in the fall for members who have renewed their 2020 membership.
