We have carefully selected each city that will host the National Events Partnership Showcase. These cities are homes to Fortune 500 companies and the most qualified planners in the nation. Our first and last showcase of 2017 will be held in the beautiful city Minneapolis, also known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes.” We are also excited to travel to respectable cities including Chicago, Seattle, St. Louis and Pittsburg. If your city is not listed on our registration page, send us a message and we will review and consider adding it for future showcases.

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.
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.
