About Minneapolis

Minneapolis, Minnesota, along with St. Paul, make up the “Twin Cities” that line both banks of the upper Mississippi River. It is located in North America’s Central Time Zone with Daylight Savings Time beginning on March 11, 2018. The average temperatures during the conference’s time of year are highs of 45° (7° C) and lows of 27° (-3° C). For information on the many attractions of the city, click here. There are numerous major museums as well as a plethora of opportunities in music, the performing arts, and professional sports.


Minneapolis is served by the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). It consists of two terminals at which all major United States airlines (including discount carriers Southwest and Spirit) and many international carriers arrive and depart, and it is a major international hub for Delta Airlines. All major car rental agencies serve MSP as well as public transportation that includes light rail into the city with departures and arrivals every ten minutes.

The Twin Cities are served by interstate rail through Amtrak’s Empire Builder line that travels from Chicago to Seattle and arrives at the Union Depot in St. Paul.
