The National Collegiate Hockey Conference will host a media event that gives reporters a sneak peek behind the scenes of Target Center’s renovations in anticipation of the NCHC. The Frozen Faceoff is set for March 17–18 in Minneapolis.

“In its short history, the Frozen Faceoff has always showcased the best that college hockey has to offer,” says NCHC Commissioner Josh Fenton, pointing to the overall success the conference has enjoyed in over three years, including the first national championship by a member school, “and we are even more excited for the event this coming March with all the transformation that is taking place at Target Center.”

Members of the press as well as Priority Ticket Members will have the chance to observe the improvements within the Target Center. Including the Chairman’s Club, TCL Theater Boxes, LED lighting and an improved sound system. They will also be sampling the new and improved menu items.

The event will be held at Target Center on Wednesday, Feb. 22 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Triton Hospitality Group has acquired The Marquette Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton in downtown Minneapolis and has appointed Evolution Hospitality as manager of the property. Based in Santa Monica, California, Triton was founded in 2021 by hospitality and investment veterans John Murphy and David Parsky to acquire underperforming hotel assets. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
