Award-winning Conference Center

Voted Best Meeting Venue by Minnesota Meetings & Events magazine 2007 to 2012, Best High-Tech Venue 2015 by Unique Venues and 3rd Place Winner for Best Meeting & Event Venue 2016 by Twin Cities Business Magazine, McNamara Alumni Center is a top Minneapolis conference center chosen for its unique meeting rooms, award-winning D’Amico Catering, superior AV and adjacent parking and hotel. We especially welcome MPI and ILEA members!

The McNamara Alumni Center is one of our go-to venues for our all-day conferences. Attendees and presenters alike enjoy the unique ambiance – complete with natural light – as a fresh alternative to the typical hotel ballroom. As an event planner, I am always impressed with the knowledgeable and friendly staff, the ease of having a built-in AV system and stage, and the great service and food provided by D'Amico Catering. We are looking forward to working with the great team at McNamara again soon.

Our event at McNamara was a total success. The staff were awesome to work with. Everything went super smoothly - easiest event we've ever done. I would totally recommend McNamara - the costs are largely offset by the level of support you get.
