The 38th Annual AMSAT Space Symposium and Annual General Meeting in-person event scheduled to be held in Bloomington, Minnesota has been canceled. The event will be shifted to a virtual, online platform. This comes after a decision made between AMSAT’s Senior Leadership and Board of Directors in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While AMSAT recognizes the national challenges related to recent events in Minneapolis, they have no bearing on the Symposium decision whatsoever. We anticipate holding 2021’s Annual Space Symposium at the previously announced 2020 venue in Bloomington, Minnesota.
The in-person event was scheduled to occur Friday, October 16th – Sunday, October 18th. As the 2020 virtual event plans are developed, they will be announced via the usual AMSAT channels.
AMSAT is pleased to announce that the 38th Annual AMSAT Space Symposium and Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday, October 16th – Sunday, October 18th at the Crowne Plaza Suites: MSP Airport – Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota.
The Crowne Plaza Suites is conveniently located adjacent to the American Blvd station on the Metro Blue Line, providing easy access to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, downtown Minneapolis, and the Mall of America.
The AMSAT Board of Directors will meet on Wednesday, October 14th and Thursday, October 15th at the hotel.
Further details, including hotel reservation information, tours, and other events will be shared in the coming months.
