Minneapolis is the perfect blend of natural beauty and urban sophistication. No other American city has a chain of lakes, the mighty Mississippi, and 200 miles of walking, biking and cross country ski trails within the city limits – literally steps from a vibrant arts and music, the best shopping in the region, and museums among the finest in the nation. Minneapolis is the American city where natural and urban drama share a single stage.
Right now Minneapolis is experiencing an extraordinary time in its history. A collection of major projects, known as the Minneapolis Big Build, are transforming Minneapolis, adding new facilities, new greenspace, and new public amenities that will continue enhancing the vibrancy of our city. With the redesign of our signature street, Nicollet, the new U.S. Bank Stadium and Commons Park, and a major renovation to Target Center, the heart of downtown will be bolder, greener and more inviting than ever. Renovations at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and Walker Art Center and the new Water Works Park on the riverfront will take our already world-class amenities and make them even better.
As vibrant city, Minneapolis boasts both strong business and arts communities. And that’s all within a lush, water-filled metro that’s connected to the rest of the country. Our downtown is hopping, from the top-notch theaters to a wealth of culinary options to the innovative corporations that call it home.
With a Delta Air Lines hub at Minneapolis- St. Paul International Airport and light rail that connects the airport and Mall of America to downtown, we’re easy to explore. And, average flight times to the Minneapolis/Saint Paul metro area from around the country are just 2.5 hours.
Venues like the 480,000-square-foot Minneapolis Convention Center (MCC) play host to many events year-round. The MCC alone hosts nearly 500 events per year. Other great local facilities include U.S. Bank Stadium, Target Field, Xcel Energy Center and Target Center, countless hotels, restaurants, theaters and museums. Minneapolis offers meeting planners considerable choice when it comes to choosing venues for any size group. Use one or fill them all, but no matter where your group ends up, it’ll be in the middle of everything and the center of our attention.
With more than 6,000 hotel rooms offering a variety of feels, moods and price points, Minneapolis is the place to set your event. Settle into your hotel then enjoy one of the most walkable cities in the nation. In this compact downtown area, you can walk to the Mississippi River, skip your way to a department store, hop on over to a Broadway play or meander to enjoy some amazing cuisine.
