The mpls downtown council and Mpls Downtown Improvement District held its annual summer board retreat on Wednesday, June 20 at Target Commons on Nicollet. The event focused on mdc-DID communications, both toward membership and stakeholders and to those who live, work, play, visit and explore downtown Minneapolis every day.

After kicking off with a keynote address by Kimberly Lear of Inlay Insights, attendees were broken into groups of four that took part in rotating breakout sessions. Brainstorming and conversation took place during these sessions that focused around the vibrancy and vitality of our downtown community.
