June 24–28, 2022: Montréal, Quebec: Known as ‘Canada’s Cultural Capital’, Quebec’s largest city is like no other in North America! Behind Paris, Montréal is the 2nd largest French-speaking city in the world and truly a foodie’s paradise. While the underground pedestrian network is impressive with over 2,000 shops covering 18 miles, the 9 miles of shops lining the famous Sainte-Catherine Street has been the pride of Montréal for over a century. As you explore Montréal, Notre-Dame Basilica, Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and the Olympic Stadium are just a few sights you won’t want to miss. If nature is your escape, 343 acres of green space in Mount Royal Park offers the best views of this cosmopolitan city. Montréal has so much more to offer, come early and stay late!
July 7–11, 2023: Boston, Massachusetts, USA: A quintessential blend of colonial history and cutting-edge innovation. From the charming cobblestones of Beacon Hill and the civic landmarks along the Black Heritage Trail and Freedom Trail, to the iconic grounds of Harvard University and Fenway Park, Boston is a treasure trove of Americana.

June 21–25, 2024: Melbourne, Australia: With Melbourne’s combination of world-class dining, art galleries, homegrown fashion and a packed sports calendar, it’s no surprise Victoria’s capital is regarded the world’s most livable city.

Start at Flinders Street station, wander down Degraves Street and explore the city’s beautiful arcades and street art around every corner.
July 4–8, 2025: Mexico City, Mexico: Mexico is currently the sixth most visited country in the world, welcoming over 39 million international visitors each year. Mexico City is a busy modern city with a rich heritage dating back 30 centuries! The historic city center has a pyramid, an ancient castle and fort and many museums to celebrate and display the culture. Mexico is also an excellent touristic destination, with over 6,000 miles of coastline, 35 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the world’s most dazzling assortment of resorts, 28 World Cultural Heritage Sites and 187 archaeological sites, seven World Natural Heritage Sites, vibrant indigenous culture and a 300 year Spanish/European Colonial legacy, Mexico is unparalleled in diversity, hospitality and the quality of its visitor experience.
July 3–7, 2026: Atlanta, Georgia, USA: Atlanta is home to the busiest airport in the world welcoming more than 1 million international visitors each year. Centennial Olympic Park is Downtown’s centerpiece and is anchored by the Fountain of Rings, an everlasting reminder of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, with attractions Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame and The National Center for Civil and Human Rights just next door. Atlanta’s rich history comes to life in Sweet Auburn Historic District, as the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park and Ebenezer Baptist Church are located within the district. Chef-run restaurants dish up modern American cuisine in strikingly beautiful spaces while locally owned craft breweries sprinkle the city, creating an unofficial ale trail for visitors to enjoy. Atlanta sits at the intersection of Southern charm, creativity and sophistication. From arts and culture to music and cuisine, the city is full of multi-cultural opportunities for everyone.
July 2–6, 2027: Washington, DC, USA: From monuments and memorials to vibrant neighborhoods filled with character and charm, Washington, DC is a memorable, world-class destination filled with breathtaking views, unique venues, award-winning hotels and hundreds of free things to do. There’s no shortage of entertainment, from outstanding shopping to the wonders of free museums to can’t-miss theater and outdoor playgrounds like Rock Creek Park. DC’s renowned dining scene is filled with culinary talent and variety, a fact proven by annual Michelin Guide treatment. The USA’s capital city also offers unique cultural diversity, pairing international influence with a distinct local identity. It’s easy to access and navigate through three airports. Traversing the district is simple, whether by foot, via bike rental with Capital Bikeshare or through the city’s efficient Metrorail system. Washington, DC is a must-see destination for an unforgettable visit.
June 23 – 27, 2028: Singapore: This city-state and island country is one of the must-see cities of the world…with its blend of Asian and European cultures and graceful colonial buildings which blend well with century old markets and modern architecture. Singapore is a multicultural kaleidoscope; its collage of cultures represents four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. Although Singapore is among the 20 smallest countries in the world, it is also second to the most densely populated in the world with 6,400 people per square kilometer. This amazing city-state offers a fantasy Merlion as its symbol, wondrous nature parks and the earth’s first night zoo/safari. The 111th annual convention is not to be missed!
