2018 Tourism Conference



What are the coming year's biggest challenges for Minnesota tourism? What has our industry accomplished over the past year? What are they serving for dinner on Tuesday night? Explore Minnesota will answer these questions, and more, at the 2018 Tourism Conference, March 6-7 at the Verizon Center in downtown Mankato.

Sparks fly whenever Minnesota's brightest tourism professionals gather together under one roof, and we're excited to watch as ideas and connections made at the conference grow into real, tangible results for our industry. Get plugged in, and stay plugged in, when you attend the 2018 Tourism Conference in Mankato.
