2018 District 5 Conference

Oct. 7 - 9, 2018
Rochester, Minnesota


Marketing and Communication

Join us this fall in beautiful Rochester for the District 5 2018 regional conference, "Destination: Marketing and Communication, Successful Planning in an Instant Messaging World."

Our keynote presenters will focus on communication for promotion, information, reputation and customer service in our ever-changing and always-on digital world.

We'll also pull back the curtain and provide you with insight into the planning that's gone into Rochester's Destination Medical Center (DMC), a bold initiative currently underway to build the city into a hub for health and wellness.

Enjoy the comforts of the historic Kahler Grand Hotel, located in the heart of downtown and 15 minutes from the Rochester Internaltional Airport. Steeped with a rich history which spans almost a century long, the Kahler Grand Hotel is a Rochester staple. At this iconic location you'll feel the pulse of this vibrant city right from the lobby. But don't stop there. The Kahler Grand Hotel is steps from great dining and shopping. Watch for more details soon.
