The Minneapolis – St. Paul International Society of Special Events (ISES) knows how to network while having a good time. What more would you expect from a group of event professionals? In the spirit of staying local for their monthly event, ISES members toured the establishments of Northeast Minneapolis for the Summer Saunter on June 18. The group started at Nye’s Polonaise, hopped in the new Brew Ride (a public or private brewery shuttle) to 612 Brew and ended the evening at Ginger Hop.  

The MPI Minnesota Chapter gathered on June 20 to celebrate the success of its past year at JX Event Venue in Stillwater. The event included a happy hour, Fun Pianos that serenaded guests, elevated food stations, trolley rides and a hidden speakeasy.

 

Over 400 association executives, staff and members of the hospitality community connected at the Associations North Solutions Conference at Mystic Lake Center on June 13-14. The conference consisted of the Annual Meeting & Expo, a Cornholapalooza (bean bag tournament) and a Golf Classic, and an open-concept trade show.
