Just minutes from the buzz of downtown Minneapolis, The West End Conference Center is a haven for meetings and events. With smart, distraction-free conference spaces, loads of free parking and walkable post-meeting fun, this St Louis Park gem is a win-win for everyone.

Since its inception in March of 2019, the property has committed to providing hassle-free planning and faultless experiences for attendees. “We started as an education and training company, but were frustrated with inconsistent service and unpredictable amenities that came with renting hotel ballrooms, so we created our own space,” says Teri Bylander-Pinke, the property’s COO. The product was a state-of-the-art facility with foolproof technology, flexible space configurations and catering options with no service fees.

The new facility offers three large rooms and two smaller six-person conference rooms. The ‘Tank’ is the largest of the rooms at 1,323 square feet for up to 66 guests. For more intimate breakouts, five ‘huddle rooms’ can each accommodate up to three. Free fiber-based internet, projection screens in the large spaces and TVs for the smaller spaces are provided.

Designed with businesses in mind, the contemporary, minimalist style provides a productive work environment that doesn’t sacrifice comfort. The interactive aesthetic makes the West End Conference Center ideal for events like board meetings, workshops or training sessions.

The home of Rockford’s new entrepreneurial event space may date back to the 1920s, but Rockford City Market is primed to showcase future creatives and makers of all kinds.

When you're in the mountains, it’s truly difficult to be bored. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking and climbing, the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada know how to keep things interesting when it comes to outdoor activities. But sometimes, the best way to enjoy the mountains is to sit back and take in the expansive views. Take your meetings to the mountains without the heavy snow gear and winter boots by hosting your next event on a rooftop venue surrounded by breathtaking mountains.
