The 45th annual International Snowmobile Congress (ISC) will be held at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, 2040 Airport Drive, Green Bay, on June 5-8, 2013, hosted by the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs (AWSC).
ISC is held once a year to bring snowmobilers from the US, Canada, Sweden, and Russia together for three days of meetings and exchanging of ideas. The event will include meetings of several organizations including the International Snowmobile Council (ISC), the American Council of Snowmobile Associations (ACSA), the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO), the International Association of Snowmobile Administrators (IASA), the International Snowmobile Media Council (ISMC), the International Snowmobile Tourism Council (ISTC), and the Iron Dog Brigade.
The Radisson Hotel is located on the west side of Green Bay, right across the road from the Austin Straubel International Airport. It is connected to the Oneida Casino, offering plenty of gaming opportunities to you in your free time. The hotel is providing us a very economic nightly room rate of $80 (plus tax). We invite you to come early or stay late at the same rate – there is plenty to see and do in the area!
Full registration for the event is $225 if paid before April 1, 2013. Registration includes a welcome reception on Wednesday evening, June 5, hosted by the AWSC. Breakfast and coffee breaks are included all three days, along with dinner each evening. The opening ceremonies will be held on Thursday morning and a speaker will be featured at each breakfast. Numerous educational seminars on a variety of topics will also be available. Any event in Green Bay wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the famous Lambeau Field and the Packers Hall of Fame. With our large group, we will not be able to participate in their stadium tour, but you are welcome to take the tour on your own while you are in town. On Friday evening, the groomer companies will sponsor a reception that includes dinner, followed by hospitality put on by the Colorado Snowmobile Association, hosts of ISC in 2014. It all concludes with a banquet on Saturday night with the national awards presentations. Of course, the Thirsty Dogs will convene following the banquet.

The Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs is looking forward to seeing everyone in Green Bay, Wisconsin in June.
