A great time was had at Twin Cities’ favorite Food Hall where we experienced the diverse flavors of our community. Enjoyed food from nine distinctive culinary purveyors, and sampled beers and wines from the self-pour draft wall! Network with our generous sponsors and rekindled relationships with our members & guests. Our SITE Minnesota leadership shared updates on the year, including our newest Board & Committee members, our vision for July Education Day and more!
Supplier & Planner of the Year awards were announced! Congratulations to Seth Ryan, Omni Hotels and Joy Lewis, One10
We celebrated the end of an exciting year with our industry colleagues and friends at SITE Minnesota's annual Holiday and CSR Event.
In the spirit of spreading cheer, SITE MN hosted a food drive to benefit our partner, The Link.
For those unfamiliar, The Link has been such a worthy and appreciative benefactor of our charitable efforts, working with youth and young families to overcome the impacts of poverty and social injustice.
The kids are back to school and making new friends. Now it’s our turn, let’s get back to business and make some connections! Join us at the newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington for SITE Minnesota’s Fall Sip & SITE event. You won’t want to miss this night of networking, lively libations, and the musical stylings of our industry's own, Karina Kern. As Halloween is just around the corner from this event, we will be partnering with The Link to provide 30 new or next to new costumes for their youth! We are asking everyone in attendance to bring a child size costume for ages newborn to 7 years old. SITE Minnesota would love to drop off these 30 costumes after the event with the help of all of you!
Special Thanks to all of our Amazing Sponsors that helped put this event together.

For the first time ever, Education Day was a two-day event! We gathered in late July at the Dayton's Project to kick off our time together with a networking cocktail reception, followed by a day of learning. We focused on "Moving Forward", with captivating speakers addressing career development, work-life balance and sustainable solutions for the future of our industry.
Thank you for all of our sponsor, whom without this would not be possible! Mutika Experience Management Company, ETHOS Event Collective, KSL Resorts, Melia Hotels International, Auberge Resorts Collection, PGA National Resort, The Palm Beaches

Catch up with your fellow SITE Minnesota friends for a fun casual interactive networking event followed by a personal tour into the world of Tequila. Immerse yourself in the sights and flavors of Mexico with our host Michael Barnhart, Hilton Los Cabos / Conrad Punta de Mita, and resident Tequila expert. Tequila is far more than a Margarita ingredient. It’s a multi-faceted liquor with a rich history and a wide variety of colors and flavors. This engaging event will highlight the history and culture of Tequila, the different types of Tequila and how they are made as well as appetizing food pairing suggestions. We will also focus on the safety and benefits of International travel to Mexico with post-COVID food and beverage safety policies and a refresher on VAT reclaim and recovery.
