PINE BUSH, NY – The New York State Snowmobile Association (NYSSA) is accepting proposals for banquet, meeting facilities and lodging for its 20th Educational Forum and Annual Meeting in 2016. Held every April over three days, the weekend event draws representatives from the 240 member snowmobile clubs located across New York State.

The NYSSA Educational Forum and Annual Meeting typically draws more than 600 participants, accounting for more than 600 hotel room nights over a three-day period.

“The Educational Forum and Annual Meeting is a major highlight of every snowmobile season. It’s not only a way to recap the past winter and prepare for the coming season, but for our members and partners to make new connections and learn new skills to take back to their club members, said Dominic Jacangelo, Executive Director of NYSSA.

Sealed proposals from venues must be received by NYSSA by 5 p.m. on September 4, 2014. General requirements for hosting the Educational Forum and Annual Meeting include: hotel conference facilities to accommodate at least 600 participants, 2,000 square feet indoors for vendor booths, 6,000 square feet for large equipment display, hotels serving meals and meeting rooms wired for sound and digital presentations.

“The 2016 Forum will bring an incredible economic boost to the host community. We see more than 500 guests enjoy the local hotels, shops and restaurants during their stay every single year,” said James Elmore, President of NYSSA.

NYSSA typically seeks a two-year contract for the Educational Forum and Annual Meeting, and welcomes proposals that can offer a two-year engagement. This year’s Forum was held in Rochester, and the Association will return in 2015.

Keystone, CO- The New York State Snowmobile Association was recognized at the International Snowmobile Congress, being held June 10 - 13 in Keystone, CO, for holding two "Take a Friend Snowmobiling" events which raised the visibility of snowmobiling in New York State.

In December of 2013 and March of 2014, NYSSA was pleased to take Governor Andrew Cuomo and many other key State legislators and agency leaders on enjoyable snowmobile rides.

NYSSA partnered with the Governor and his staff on organizing and locating an event. NYSSA provided extra sleds and equipment, thelocal clubs provided a well groomed and marked trails, and the Governor’s office providedinvitations to public officials and the media. Media coverage of the initial event went national and the second event played more in the state as part of the Adirondack Winter Challenge, a celebration of all of NY’s winter sports. This is the first time ever that we were able to get a Governor to actually go out and ride. What we learned is that he really liked it!

The benefits to the sport of snowmobiling in New York, and indeed extending to other Northeast states, are many.

  • The “I [snowmobile] New York” publicity campaign on television, and in print advertising is drawing in brand-new riders who have never tried snowmobiling before.
  • Snowmobile rental businesses in New York and beyond saw an immediate uptick in business.
  • Snowmobilers outside of New York are requesting information about our trails, and presumably planning trips to New York for next season.
  • We’ve noticed a bump in early-season registrations, which may be attributed to sales of new snowmobiles.
