2021 Annual Conference

Get Ready for the 2021 MNFEA Conference!

2020 turned into a year of reflection as the event industry took a major turn due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With hope and a vaccine on the horizon, MNFEA is looking toward the future of our industry as we present the 2021 MNFEA Conference!

SAVE THE DATE: March 24-25
Radisson Blu in Bloomington, MN


Sessions and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks! As always, the education sessions will be packed with valuable information for event and festival professionals, vendors, and service providers. While we will focus on getting back to business, sessions will also highlight general business, operations plans, diversity, and more!

Equally important, networking opportunities will be built into the program to maximize connections across and within each platform so you can meet & connect no matter what attendance style you prefer. Learn about this year's sessions & speakers and register now to join us!


This year's event will be a hybrid experience, offering two ways to enjoy the Conference:

  1. In-person at the Radisson Blu MOA
  2. Virtually

Sessions will run 9am-5pm on Wednesday, March 24, and 9am-3pm on Thursday, March 25 for 2 full days of content & networking!

Last Chance to Register!
While In-Person registration is now closed, there's still time to register to join us virtually! Don't miss out on this pivotal year as we discuss re-opening guidelines, diversity practices, and essential ways for you to not only get back to business, but experience growth in the coming years.
