• Distinguished by our culture of caring, spirit of innovation, and stylish new convention center, we are confident that Minnesota's Rochester will exceed your attendees' expectations. Nine out of ten visitors say they'd recommend Rochester as a destination, and our visitor surveys consistently show that our city's top advantages are our friendliness, cleanliness, and safety.

• Rochester, located just an 80-minute drive southeast of Minneapolis-St. Paul, is home of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, which was built upon a foundation of compassion and has become a global destination for health and wellness. It's not surprising, then, that the city itself is similarly built on an unwavering commitment to hospitality and dedication to guests. This warmth extends to convention attendees, who also appreciate Rochester's scenic beauty, relaxing pace, and abundant dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

• Complementing the city's culture of caring is our large downtown convention and event center designed with attendees' comfort and convenience in mind. A major expansion and stunning modernization of the Mayo Civic Center was completed in late 2017, cementing Rochester's status as a top-tier meetings destination. Now offering more than 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space and built to accommodate groups of up to 4,000 attendees, the convention center's innovative design and amenities make it ideal for many different industries and types of events.EngagingCollaboration atMCC376x251
