Facts About Minneapolis:

  • Minneapolis residents can stay warm with the Minneapolis Skyway, an indoor pedestrian walkway system that links many downtown buildings. Spanning 69 blocks and seven miles, it's the longest continuous skyway system in the world.
  • Minnesota's capital city isn't Minneapolis—it's St. Paul. Although Minneapolis is a bigger city, St. Paul is home to the state's government.
  • In 2012, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis hosted the world's first Internet Cat Video Festival, which was, well, a celebration of cat videos on the Internet. An estimated 10,000 people showed up for the event.
  • Located right outside the Twin Cities in Bloomington, Minnesota, is the biggest mall in America - the Mall of America, which is a great place to go clothes shopping—especially because Minnesota has no sales tax on apparel and accessories.

We know that your days during the conference will be filled with plentiful CE sessions, walking through the exhibit hall, and conversing with colleagues, but you won't want to miss out on time spent in this beautiful city. In your downtime, make sure to see this city for all its worth.
