In a group planning survey conducted by the Bloomington Convention & Visitors Bureau, meeting planners cited the centralized, efficient location with on-site dining and entertainment options as being extremely desirable. The survey also found the close proximity to the airport, along with increased convenience and flexibility, differentiates this group planning opportunity. The ability to increase attendance and provide unique experiences also resonated with respondents.
"We represent the 43 exceptional hotels in Bloomington and Mall of America is a central draw for these properties,” stated Dan O’Neill, vice president strategy and sales for the Bloomington CVB. “Many planners are looking for a large unique space with built-in entertainment; we consider this new meeting experience within Mall of America a nice asset to Bloomington's hospitality community.”
Bloomington, Minnesota, the City of Hospitality, is located adjacent to Minneapolis and St. Paul, just minutes from MSP International Airport, and is home of Mall of America. Bloomington has the largest concentration of hotels in the state and is a premier destination for meetings, conventions, and groups.
