It was a Fabulous 2023 Fall Conference

November 25, 2023

The 2023 Fall Conference, Nov. 16-17 at the Mystic Lake Center in Prior Lake, was filled with outstanding education, plenty of time for networking, and beautiful fall weather. The Thursday evening cornhole event was a hit, with the team of Michael Kirsch and Kyle Imholte taking the championship.

Nearly 500 attendees and 140 exhibit booth staff representing 54 vendors enjoyed this annual flagship event. "This was my first time attending and the conference was great," and "My favorite conference of the year based on location and content" are a couple of comments shared by attendees.

A special thank you to our wonderful sponsors and exhibit hall vendors for your support and partnership!
