Getting from the Minneapolis Airport to Downtown
Getting to the conference venue is easy! Just hop on the light rail at the airport (Blue Line), direction Minneapolis – Target Field, and get off at the Government Plaza Stop. Then walk to Third Ave S, turn right and walk three blocks.
NACIS Night Out Venue
We have a great venue for this year, about four blocks walk from the conference hotel, The Aster Cafe. Have a look at the space and the location. Our menu will be posted soon. We think it will be conducive to relaxed and informal conversations.
Later in the evening, there will be live music at the venue. Check out the group that is playing that night.
