With more than 500 attendees from all over the world, we continue to get rave reviews on the facilities, the food, and most importantly, the great people who warmly welcome our guests all over the city.”

“We truly enjoyed our experience in Mankato in September 2017. The staff at the Verizon Center was wonderful to work with, and the event center is a beautiful place to host a conference. And, of course, the food was wonderful. We had really good reviews from our attendees.”
– Peggy Schmid, Meeting Planner

“Thanks so much for all you did to make our experience in Mankato so great! Double thanks for organizing the brewery experience. Tim is great, the games they had available to play were awesome and Owen had great patience waiting for us! Thanks again – we will be back in Mankato in 2017. “
– Merry Beckmann, Meeting Planner

 Mankato was a wonderful host for our corporate meeting/team building event! From kayaking down the Minnesota River, to homemade ice cream, to dinner and drinks at more than one restaurant, and wine tasting in the barrel room at Chankaska Winery, we had a blast and would recommend Mankato as a great destination for your next event!”
– Carrie Shatek, Meeting Planner

 ” I also wanted to thank you for taking your time to take control of our housing issue and help address the situation. You’re a tremendous asset to the Mankato Convention and Visitors Bureau!!”
– Paul Tentis, 728 Cadets Marching Band Member

“Thank you for all you did. It was a pleasure to have you as a contact making the details flow easier and being a true ambassador for Mankato.  Thank you also for the growler and glass. That was a nice personal touch. We stopped by the tap room after the conference to sample some of their beer. That too was a good experience.”
– Jon Christianson, Meeting Planner
