About the Event
It’s time to share the love of travel! The past three years have had a major impact on the travel & tourism industry as we’ve battled unsurmountable challenges. But our industry is resilient and is on the path to recovery – coming back stronger and more motivated than ever.
Please join your friends and colleagues as the members of GBTA North Central, HSMAI – Minnesota Chapter, MPI Minnesota Chapter, and NACE Twin Cities gather for an afternoon of networking, light bites, and beverages. Melvin Tennant, the president and chief executive officer of Meet Minneapolis, will present on the travel and tourism industry, where we have been, where we are going, and the importance that travel plays in our economy. You will also have the opportunity to hear from each participating organization.
