Why Public Shows are Important for Minneapolis

This week, we bring you a guest column from Jeff Johnson. Jeff is the Executive Director of the Minneapolis Convention Center (MCC). The MCC was built as an economic generator for our local hospitality/travel industry, and its role is vital in the ongoing recovery of our industry. Jeff’s column is about the importance of the consumer public shows for the MCC and our city. Most of these public shows take place in the first quarter of each year. Enjoy the read and thank you for your support. - Melvin Tennant
