Register now for the 34th International Sweetener Symposium, to be held, August 4-9, 2017, at the Omni San Diego in downtown San Diego, California. Attendance at the 2017 Symposium is a must for everyone in the industry. How will the new Administration’s trade agenda affect agriculture and the sugar industry? How is Congress progressing on the next Farm Bill? What is the current balance with the world sugar market and how will that affect the U.S. and world sugar market outlook? What is the latest on U.S. – Mexican sugar trade? What are the latest trends in the sugar and sweetener containing products market?  We will have an impressive line-up of highly qualified speakers to address these important topics.

This year’s location, the newly renovated four-star Omni San Diego Hotel, is located in the heart of downtown San Diego. This chic hotel has a prime location in the historic Gaslamp Quarter, known for its wide range of dining options, lively nightlife and shopping. The downtown location also offers easy access to many of the city’s top sites and attractions. Explore Balboa Park, take a harbor cruise, spend the day on Coronado Island, or visit the USS Midway aircraft carrier museum. Sports enthusiasts can catch a Padres baseball game at PETCO Park, connected to the hotel via a pedestrian skywalk. San Diego has quickly become a premier travel destination with its fabulous seaside city location which offers miles of sandy beaches and a year-round average 70-degree temperature.

Due to the popularity of this event, the room block at the Omni San Diego is expected to sell out; therefore, we are providing you with additional lodging options as follows:

Omni San Diego is the headquarter hotel of the year’s Symposium where all business and social events will be held. Call 1-800-THE-OMNI and refer to the “American Sugar Alliance” room block to receive the discounted Symposium rate.  Room rates start at $219 (single) and $239 (double).
