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 Ballroom A-B (ground level).
Visit https://www.minneapolis.org/minneapolis-convention-center/attendees/public-event-parking-options/ to find all available public parking options for the Minneapolis Convention Center. The MCC has partnered with four City of Minneapolis parking ramps to increase attendee convenience. All ramps are connected through the skyway system and are located within two blocks of the MCC.
You can also download the MPLS Parking App to reserve and pay for your parking spot beforehand.
*Parking costs are the responsibility of the employer.
Direct shipments to the Convention Center are strongly discouraged, as the Convention Center does not accept direct shipments. You can ship your materials prior to the fair however, through the job fair decorator: Fern.
Fern has been selected as the official service contractor for the event. Shipping information along with other drayage, ordering, material handling, and other exhibitor services information will be emailed by a Fern service member to the contact person on your registration. If you haven't yet received this information or for questions about shipping and ordering, contact:
Fern Exhibitor Account Manager
Wi-Fi and Audio Visuals
Wi-Fi is not provided at the recruiting fair. The Minneapolis Convention Center offers free Wi-Fi (wireless Internet service) in all first level lobbies. If you need to access Wi-Fi for recruiting purposes in the lower level during the recruiting fair, we recommend using your phone as a hotspot or bringing a hotspot device.
