SAVE THE DATE: 2015 DMI Annual Dinner - Monday, October 26, 5:00-8:30pm, Monona Terrace

2014 DMI Annual Dinner

On Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center, a record setting attendance of 600 DMI members, friends and downtown stakeholders gathered in celebration of the 2014 DMI Annual Dinner. Attendees enjoyed a great evening of networking and dinner as well as a keynote presentation by former Mayor of Minneapolis, R.T. Rybak. To read more about R.T.’s presentation, click here.

The dinner also served as the venue to present the 19th annual Community Asset Awards. The awards were developed as a way to publicly thank individuals and organizations who contribute significantly to improving the quality of life within the downtown community. The 2014 Community Asset Award recipient was the Overture Center for the Arts.
