Arena renovation in Minneapolis affects 2017 convention planPosted on
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING 2017 INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION IN MINNEAPOLIS
Dear BHS Community,
The Minneapolis Convention and Visitors Bureau has informed us that the Target Center, a primary venue for our 2017 International Convention, will be undergoing a major renovation during July, 2017. This is breaking news that will potentially have an impact on our 2017 plans. We are in deep conversation with the City of Minneapolis and will keep you posted as our options and solutions reveal themselves. Due to the timing of this announcement, the probability that the 2017 International Convention will be moved to another city is fairly high at this point.
We will explore a variety of 2017 alternatives that will meet the needs and expectations of our competitors and audiences. We will release additional information as it becomes available.
