International Cool Climate Wine Symposium 2021

July 25 to 29, 2021


Update: October 27, 2020


We greatly look forward to hosting you at the ICCWS on July 25 to 29, 2021, at Brock University, located in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

We take your health, safety and enjoyment of the symposium very seriously. Brock University has developed a five-stage response to and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic to guide occupancy and delivery of services (including the ICCWS) on campus. This plan is informed by public health and government recommendations and guidelines with the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and the community as the highest priority. The ICCWS 2021 Advisory Organizing Committee is using this response to guide decision-making in regards to all symposium activities.

In order to safely hold an in-person conference on our campus, Brock University must be in Brock Stage 5 of the phased plan and, additionally, adhere to all Public Health guidelines regarding gatherings, meeting spaces, and residences.

On Sept. 1, the University moved from Brock Stage 2 to Brock Stage 3, which loosened some of the restrictions on campus activity and access. It is expected the University will remain at Brock Stage 3 until at least January 2021.

Updates will continue to be provided on the University’s progression through the plan.

Please continue to monitor Brock’s ICCWS 2021 and Coronavirus information webpages for more information.
