Highlights from the day include Trend Hunter CEO Jeremy Gutsche’s engaging keynote speech outlining the 6 Patterns of Opportunity and 18 Megatrends changing our world, informative trend and innovation sessions on the future of consumer insights, and an immersive afterparty experience where top innovators will have an opportunity to connect. You will also walk away with $4,000 worth of research and presentation materials to help you turn inspiration into action.

Why visit? We'll suggest a dozen one-of-a-kind experiences for after the Minneapolis Innovation Conference

Minneapolis Innovation Conference Venue
Whether you’ve visited the Twin Cities before or not, there is plenty to see or do. If you have some time on your hands before or after the Minneapolis Strategy Conference, be sure to check out some of the city’s most unexpected venues. This includes stopping for some delicious vegan grub at The Herbivorous Butcher, sampling some exceptional sour beers at Wild Mind Artisan Ales, and then crafting an original score on the city’s famed Sidewalk Harp. If you’d rather enjoy some downtime, head over to Orfield Laboratories in South Minneapolis to explore an anechoic chamber that has been dubbed “the quietest place on earth.”
