Little America Hotel
Salt Lake City, UT
Mark your calendar, July 22- 25, 2012 for the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Aquatic Plant Management Society. The Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City will be the site for our annual meeting. Among Salt Lake City hotels, Little America stands apart as a superior choice—and not just because it’s one of Salt Lake’s most luxurious four-diamond hotels. Just ten minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, this hotel is an ideal base from which to explore Utah or Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City hosts a flourishing nightlife with over 350 nightclubs, a vibrant artistic and cultural scene, numerous museums, and sidewalks safe enough to stroll long after dark. The Little America can serve as your ideal “base camp” for your outdoor adventures with five distinct National Parks and sixteen National Monuments and Recreation Areas in the area. As in 2011, a 2½ day format will be utilized for the meeting. The technical program will begin Monday morning and end around noon on Wednesday, with a poster session on Monday evening. Our meeting will kick off with the President’s Reception on Sunday evening. As the official welcoming event of the meeting, this reception is an excellent time to reacquaint with old friends, meet new friends, and just relax and enjoy great food and beverage. The Monday evening Poster Session and Reception presents a great opportunity to examine posters and exhibits while enjoying great food and beverage. The APMS Banquet on Tuesday evening will be another memorable event where we will recognize those who have served and contributed to our Society, welcome new officers and directors, and present student paper and other awards. The Meeting Planning Committee is planning exciting and entertaining events for relaxing and visiting with friends and colleagues. The Program Committee promises a diverse and interesting program with excellent oral and poster presentations on aquatic plant research and management. In addition, useful information on available aquatic plant management products and professional services will be provided in the exhibits room throughout the meeting.
This will be an extraordinary meeting, so bring your family as well. Mark your calendar to attend the meeting, and plan to explore all Salt Lake City and Utah has to offer.
