LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Friday at La Crosse Center, the International Maple Conference (continued) as visitors from as far away as Canada took tours of the region followed by an evening trade show.

Set up by the Wisconsin Maple Syrup Producers Association, nearly 300 tickets were sold for the event which included special dinner and drink options as well as a performance by a polka band. A total of 36 vendors also presented the latest information within the maple industry.






Marketing intern Alicia Baroun says it’s a welcome sign to see people taking an interest in the trade of maple syrup and other related products.

“It means a lot to people who are interested in getting out and learning more about the association as well as what maple is in general,” Baroun said. “It’s great that the two locals were able to come out and see, if they didn’t know anything about the association, to come and see the vendors and find out about the different tours and sessions we had.”

One of these tours included stops in the area’s sugar bushes as well as in the Kickapoo Valley.
