The number of people that attend events each year at the Minneapolis Convention Center (MCC) impacts not only the MCC, but also the local hospitality industry as a whole.
Each year, the MCC sustains over 8,000 hospitality jobs in Minneapolis, which over 30 years … well let’s just say that’s a lot of jobs! This isn’t a solo mission, however. We depend on the entire hospitality industry working together to create an overall lasting impression on attendees – and the Minneapolis industry doesn’t disappoint. In 2019 alone, the MCC saw over 863,000 people attend events, using a total of 295,010 hotel room nights, and all experiencing some aspect of the city’s hospitality.
Fun fact: The 2019 total attendance was 2.87% higher than 2018, which is a pretty big deal considering 2018 included one seriously SUPER event...(Super Bowl LII)!
And while we celebrate 30 years in 2020, we're not the only ones! Three other major businesses in Minneapolis have been on hospitality journey with us since 1990.
