66th ICoMST  and the 73rd RMC

StevenandBrandonPlease join us for the 66th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology and the 73rd Reciprocal Meat Conference on August 2-7, 2020 in Orlando, Florida, USA. This is just the fourth time the International Congress will be held in the USA and the first time since 2005. We agree that this meeting is a landmark opportunity to learn from each other and advance the core purpose of AMSA: “To foster community and professional development among individuals who create and apply science to efficiently provide safe and high-quality meat.”

Our planning committee has embraced the motto for this conference, Where Science and Inspiration Meet. Our committee has lined up an outstanding technical program and organized engaging social events. World-class speakers will enlighten our minds and the social events will help us to network with friends and colleagues, both old and new. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the Disney experience with your friends and family.

Our committee is grateful for those who have made contributions to organize technical, student, and social events. A special thank you also goes to the international advisory committee that already has made valuable suggestions in the planning process. This event could not be successful without the support of the meeting sponsors; many have already committed to the 2020 meeting and we are grateful for their enthusiastic support.

The last and most important ingredient for a successful RMC and ICoMST is the participation of each person. Please plan to attend, share your enthusiasm for meat science, present your ideas and results in a poster session, contribute to lively debate in technical sessions, and set the stage for the innovation and inspiration for the global meat science community. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you at the event. Please, join us!


Steven Lonergan and Brandon Fields
General Co-Chairs for the 2020 ICoMST and RMC
