MACVB - Education Resources

The Minnesota Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus education is a key component to the success of Minnesota destination marketing organizations.  Hence, there are a myriad of opportunities to stay refreshed and as Stephen Covey puts it, “Sharpen the saw.”.

The Annual MACVB Educational Summit is held in June.  This event is open to MACVB members and staff.  The 2-day Summit will consist of strong educational presentations that pertain to our businesses, an evening of networking, dinner and fun with tourism pros, guest speakers and key tourism stakeholders.

The MACVB Facebook page is a source of announcements and also great educational offerings.  Be sure to “Like” us on Facebook.

The MACVB Annual Meeting is loaded with great educational offerings.  Save-the-date for the 2017 Annual Meeting, October 17-18.
As a progressive group of professionals, MACVB is always looking for pertinent articles, guest speakers and any strong education you feel would be of interest to colleagues.  Please share your ideas with us by emailing Joe Henry at
