About ISA 2007

Conference Venue

The 3rd International Seabuckthorn Association Conference:  Promoting Seabuckthorn Industry Worldwide - Opportunities and Challenges was held in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada at the Loews Le Concorde Hotel from August 12 to 16, 2007.


Quebec City is the birthplace of French civilization in North America.  It guards access to the entire region from its perch on the Cape Diamond promontory high above the mighty St. Lawrence River.  Quebec is the only city in North America still surrounded by ancient stone fortifications.  As the only walled city on the continent north of Mexico, it has a unique personality.  UNESCO recognized this uniqueness by including Old Quebec in the prestigious family of world heritage treasures monuments of exceptional universal value worthy of special protection.


Located on the highest point of Quebec City at the entrance of the old walled city, the Loews Le Concorde lodging offers unobstructed, majestic views of the St. Lawrence River, Old Quebec, and the Plains of Abraham.  Its location on Grande-Allee Avenue - the Champs-Elysees of Quebec - is central to many sights, shops, businesses, dining and museums.
