Unloading (street level)

If you need to unload any materials prior to parking, pull into the curved unloading access road off 2nd Avenue (near Ballroom A/B). Park next to the curb on the access road to unload. Enter the building and follow the signs to L100 (lower level). Take the escalator/elevator (located around the side of the UPS Store) to the lower level. 



Parking is easy to find at the conveniently located Minneapolis Convention Center. In addition to metered parking, there is a wide selection of off-street parking to choose from within easy walking distance - most of these are parking ramps that are connected to the Minneapolis Convention Center by skyway.

Meet Minneapolis has partnered with Spot Hero, the nationwide leader in online parking reservations, to allow visitors to purchase guaranteed parking near their destination. View real-time availability and pricing at many locations within easy walking distance to many attractions around Minneapolis.
