WPMA 91st ANNUAL MEETING
Portland Regency Hotel & Spa
20 Milk Street
October 6th & 7th, 2021
Portland is an old city that is set on a peninsula that extends into Casco Bay. The Old Port waterfront features working fishing wharves and converted warehouses with restaurants and shops. Explore the cobblestone streets that will lead you to some wonderful dining/shopping experiences.
THE PORTLAND REGENCY HOTEL & SPA
The hotel for our 2021 annual meeting is an elegant and cozy historical gem in the Old Port district of Portland, Maine. Surrounded by boutique shops and housed within a late-19th Century armory, Portland Regency welcomes you with both traditional grandeur and a very contemporary sense of convenience and style.
Very important ~ please take care of these two items as soon as possible.
- Reserve your room - Once the limited number of guest rooms are full, there will be no way to get additional guest rooms. We recommend you call (207)774-4200 to book your room. You MUST mention the WPMA to get the special rate of $179. Rate expires on September 6th.
- Transportation - There is no need for a rental car as everything is within easy walking distance. The hotel offers COMPLIMENTARY shuttle service to and from the Portland Airport. The hotel valet rate is $20 per day if you choose to drive.
This year, you will notice that we have had to change the meeting format slightly. We are not able to visit any plants for tours due to the pandemic. The 91st annual meeting will begin at 6pm on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. Because so many events have been cancelled or postponed this year, our focus will be on NETWORKING.
We are excited to be holding a joint annual meeting with a number of directors of the Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America (WMMA.) They are one of the two owners of the IWF Atlanta Show that many of you exhibit at. Their goal is to increase networking with WPMA members, not sales.
We want this to be an event to remember, but the only way we can provide “extras” is through your generosity.
Sponsorships allow us to offer many special features. To do so, we need your financial partnership in order to make this event memorable.
Please look over the list of opportunities. There are also ways to share a sponsorship. Proper recognition will be publicized in several newsletters, social media, the Events section of the association website, signage and publicity at the meeting and in the attendees’ packages.
Please call Michelle at the association office at (978) 874-5445 with any questions that you may have.
With your company by our side at this 91st annual event, we are sure to make this a huge success.
