We'll stroll over to St. Cloud's infamous Red Carpet bar for dinner & live music from Grateful Red - all included in your conference fee! Dress is casual or as your inner rock star!

Special thanks to our friends at the Visit Greater St. Cloud Convention & Visitors Bureau for their support of the conference! The CVB is the marketing power behind the Greater St. Cloud region. Their staff responds to visitor inquiries, assists convention planners and works with group tour operators to provide a fun and interesting stay for all who stop in the area. It is their job to tell the world why Greater St. Cloud is the perfect place to visit and meet.
