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.

"We have always done it this way" just doesn’t cut it anymore. The landscape of meeting planning is going through a quiet revolution, and the old rules no longer apply. Instead, they are being replaced with new treatments from the once-sacred conference tote bag to the way chairs in the ballroom are arranged. We talked to meeting planners who are creating fresher, more authentic approaches to your average meetings.  

From “Same Old” to “Can’t Miss”

 

There is nothing like the energy of a college campus as students return for the fall semester. By the time Labor Day hits, many students are itching to get back to their friends and return to routine, even at the cost of exams, papers, and presentations. 

 

Lauren Bennett McGinty took over as executive director of Explore Minnesota Tourism in November 2021. The longtime Minnesota resident who moved here from Milwaukee when she was four has thoughtful reasons about why she remains in the North Star State.

“I moved to Minneapolis after I graduated from [Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter], and I put my roots down here,” she says. “I think a lot of it is I continue to find something new everywhere I go, and the people here are just wonderful. We have such a diverse and rich culture. I love everything about it.”
