Is there anything more convenient to both planners and attendees alike than having their meetings, activities and hotel stays all under one roof?

Mall of America, JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America, and Radisson Blue Mall of America recently announced a new “Under One Roof” meeting experience. The three properties are working together to offer luxury meeting space, as well as built-in entertainment and dining all in one convenient package.

“We represent the 43 exceptional hotels in Bloomington and Mall of America is a central draw for these properties,” stated Dan O’Neill, vice president strategy and sales for the Bloomington CVB. “Many planners are looking for a large unique space with built-in entertainment; we consider this new meeting experience within Mall of America a nice asset to Bloomington's hospitality community.”

The three venues together offer a total of 650 peak room nights and 60,000 square feet of meeting space for up to 1,200 attendees. The two hotels and the Mall of America also provide fun and creative outlets for team building activities such as scavenger hunts through the mall or progressive dinners at the numerous dining establishments – not to mention the shopping and entertainment opportunities.  

"Our hotel is designed to creatively deliver an authentic, inspiring environment and warm, intuitive service that is highly appealing to business travelers, meeting and group planners, and leisure guests," says Amy Shahin, director of hotel sales, JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America.

With close proximity to the Twin Cities, and around the corner from the airport, the location could not be more convenient for out of town planners. Additionally, Bloomington has the largest concentration of hotels in the state and is a premier destination for meetings, conventions, and groups.

“The Radisson Blu Mall of America team is proud to further its partnership with Mall of America and JW Marriott Minneapolis,” says director of sales and marketing Marilyn Miller. “We are always striving to offer the most impactful meeting offerings and look forward to the opportunity to host large scale meetings and events with our partners.”

This week, hundreds of local young professionals will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to escape the stresses and responsibilities of their day to day lives, no paid time off or carry-on needed. For those strapped with all-too-common student loan debt, SoFi, a national personal financial services agency focused in lending and wealth management, will be hosting Debt after Dark—on them.

 

On Saturday, June 16, thousands ignored the rain and scorching heat to check out the Walker Art Center’s 20th annual Rock the Garden music festival. As the local beer flowed, fans swarmed the museum’s hillside and iconic sculpture garden to soak in a diverse lineup of local and international acts including headliner Father John Misty, Feist, Chastity Brown, Kamasi Washington and P.O.S. (and a surprise guest appearance from Current DJ Mark Wheat). But what exactly goes into planning the Walker’s biggest event of the year?

 

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.
