Save-the-date: 2017 DMI Annual Dinner - October 30, 5:00-8:30pm, Monona Terrace

2016 DMI Annual Dinner

On Monday, October 24, 2016 at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center, a sellout crowd of over 600 DMI members, friends and downtown stakeholders gathered in celebration of the 2016 DMI Annual Dinner. Attendees enjoyed a great evening of networking and dinner as well as a keynote presentation by internationally respected practitioner and thought-leader in advanced urbanism, city planning, and urban design and the former Chief Planner of Vancouver, British Columbia, Brent Toderian.

The dinner also served as the venue to present the 21st 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 2016 Community Asset Award recipient was Frank Productions for their work on Freakfest.
