This is a monthly webinar update hosted by Meet Minneapolis.
The Tourism and Hospitality industry is integral to our the Minneapolis economy, representing more than $8 billion in metro area visitor spending and supporting nearly 36,000 workers in the city in 2019. The coronavirus pandemic has brought us to a standstill – keeping our visitors, convention attendees and sports fans at home and temporarily halted critical incremental spending at our airport, restaurants, shops, attractions, hotels and meeting and convention facilities.
But we know that our industry is resilient. Even though it will look different - people will travel again. For Meet Minneapolis, restoring confidence among our residents and our visitors is critical for Minneapolis to continue being a vibrant, diverse and active city where we all love to live, work and play.
Join Meet Minneapolis as we take a deeper look at the impact of the pandemic and provide key data and insights that are the basis of a strategic recovery plan for this critical economic industry in Minneapolis.
This webinar will cover:
• An update on the COVID-19 Impact: How has the pandemic impacted Minneapolis tourism and hospitality since Mid-March, and especially in the last month?
• The Future of Travel: What is the future of travel? What is the outlook and what are the assumptions driving the recovery of the various travel segments (leisure, business, and meetings and events)?
• Meet Minneapolis Recovery Plan: How is Meet Minneapolis approaching the recovery and planning for the future?
