Great Plains Tech Boom is Driving Meetings to Fargo-Moorhead Area

It takes two whole states to keep up with a destination this lively: On one side of the northflowing Red River, there’s Fargo, North Dakota, and on the Minnesota side, there’s Moorhead. Together, they’re an urban powerhouse that’s shaking up many people’s views of the Great Plains region. The visitors’ bureau declares the area to be decidedly “north of normal,” and touts the hip, eclectic vibe that comes from being home to three colleges and the biggest Microsoft campus outside Redmond, Washington.
