For the 30th time, hundreds of airfield snow fighters from around the world will gather Saturday through Wednesday at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center to exchange ideas on moving air traffic in winter.

With a “Blizzard of Ideas” theme, the Northeast Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives will hold its 49th Annual International Aviation Snow Symposium focusing on equipment and snow removal techniques, along with communications, safety, environmental and personnel trends.

“We couldn’t ask for better partners than the City of Buffalo and the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center,” said symposium co-Chairman Joseph E. Guarino.

The organization also plans to hold its 50th annual symposium in Buffalo in 2016.
