About Sault Ste. Marie
The host city in 2020 is a great place to meet. Located on the shores of the St. Mary’s River, connecting Lake Superior to Lake Huron, Sault Ste. Marie is at the heart of the Great Lakes. It is located on the Trans Canada Highway and just north of I-75 in Michigan over the International Bridge. Known as “The Soo”, it is a vibrant community of 73,000, surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape which allows for fun outdoor activities to do year-round.
Sault Ste. Marie is also a proud hockey town which has produced some of the game’s best players, including Hockey Hall of Famers Ron Francis, and the Esposito brothers, Phil and Tony. The Soo is also the home of the Greyhounds, an Ontario Hockey League franchise which has helped develop the likes of Joe Thornton, Jeff Carter, Adam Foote and Wayne Gretzky.
Notable attractions include the Agawa Canyon Tour Train, Canadian Bushplane Heritage Museum, Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site and much more!
