March Meeting venue
The event will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center, with official room blocks in adjoining hotels connected via indoor skyway.
You’ll enjoy the Minneapolis Convention Center due to its easy navigation, large spaces for collaboration, commitment to enhanced safety, plus many on-site food, coffee, and beverage options.
Official hotel block
Please book through APS and Maritz’s approved 3rd party travel planner, aRes, for citywide hotel availability at non-event rates.

Known for its natural beauty and cultural attractions, as well as its amusement parks and music scene, Minneapolis has entertainment opportunities for all types of visitors.
The APS International Affairs team has compiled resources to help international visitors to the United States plan your March Meeting travel experience.
We have added a new, equitable registration pricing structure, for attendees living in less resourced countries. These reduced prices apply to both the in-person and virtual meeting.
