Read what some of our partners have to say about working with Minneapolis Northwest!
Minnesota Department of Transportation
I have worked with Minneapolis Northwest Tourism for several years. They are experts in offering advice, answering any questions and assisting with event planning in the Minneapolis area. The staff continues to show off their community with much pride. Thank you.
Darlene Dahlseide, Transportation Program Specialist, Minnesota Department of Transportation
Topgolf ws so much fun, even with the cold weather. In fact, the cold weather seemed to make it a little more fun and more adventurous. Thanks for a wonderful time.
Debbie Van Ravenhorst, Regional Vice President, HelmsBriscoe
The Mosaic Company
Thank you Minneapolis Northwest Tourism! You arranged every detail needed & more! I would have never thought some of the details on my own. I am excited to use some of the new ideas that you introduced for planning in the future. Thanks!
The Minneapolis Northwest Convention and Visitors Bureau make event planning enjoyable. Always a few steps ahead, they assist with locating the perfect place for our events and follow through on all of the details until the completion of the event. Above and beyond is how I would describe the service that is given by everyone at Minneapolis Northwest.
Kellie Miller, Executive Assistant
Aging Services of Minnesota
The Minneapolis Northwest CVB staff are fantastic to work with! They have assisted me with site searches and provided us with a grant to bring a meeting to Brooklyn Center. They made sure we were all taken care of before, during and after the meeting.
Jenny Prosser, Vice President of Conferences & Sales
MN Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
Working with Minneapolis Northwest was a pleasure. They arranged site visits per my specifications, got proposals and assisted with getting changes to venue proposals. The process was easy. I only had to contact them to find the right venue. They also have a great grant program, giving planners the opportunity to receive money to defray some costs for having your meeting in their area.
D'Ann Brosnahan, Executive Director
Best Meetings Inc.
The Minneapolis Northwest CVB has helped me with site selection for three different clients for several meetings. They are always looking for new ways to make my group's meeting better.
Jim Louis, MS CMP, President
Working with Minneapolis Northwest helped us find the perfect location to host our first-ever national APR Boot Camp here in Minneapolis, as well as possibly created a new best practices model with our professional association, PRSA. Working with Minneapolis Northwest was as easy and as simple as they promised. After a short conversation, we received several detailed proposals without picking up the phone or spending additional time online. As a non-profit organization with a limited budget, Minneapolis Northwest’s grant program has helped ensure we can meet our budget and host our workshop in a comfortable, full-service facility where our participants will enjoy their stay in Minneapolis from start to finish. If you are looking for some great ideas for your next workshop or event, definitely contact Minneapolis Northwest!
Lisa Hiebert, APR committee co-chair
US Handball Association
Many thanks to Minneapolis Northwest Convention & Visitors Bureau and the entire community. The United States Handball Association just completed our most successful and best supported national championships in my 23 years with US Handball. The help and professional knowledge and support from the staff was the reason this year’s event went so smoothly and without a hiccup in any project Minneapolis Northwest assisted. That’s a first from this desk chair.
CareProviders of Minnesota
Minneapolis Northwest provided invaluable resources to Care Providers of Minnesota as I sought out venues for several professional development events for our members. Minneapolis Northwest staff was fabulous—friendly, professional, and delightful to work with. They vetted properties to ensure my requirements were met, including tight budget limitations. Not only did I select two new venues that met the association’s needs, I also made our members happy with excellent accommodations, in addition to the tote bags and coupons for their immediate and future use. I will use both of these venues again, in addition to Minneapolis Northwest, who provides all services without charge.
