2018 Venue & Hotel


Summit Venue

The McNamara Alumni Center

200 Oak Street S.E., Suite 100
Minneapolis, MN 55455

Designed by renowned architect Antoine Predock of Albuquerque, NM, the building reflects Minnesota’s natural assets — its 10,000 lakes, the North Shore, the Iron Range, the Northern Lights and more — in the forms, materials and design elements of the McNamara Alumni Center. Striking features include a pink granite-covered geode exterior with star-shaped glass fissures; an 85-foot tall Memorial Hall complete with six miles of wood lining its walls and a water stream and pool; and 75,000 square feet of copper cover exterior and interior walls. The alumni center has received numerous awards for its unique architecture.
