149th Annual
MNA Convention & Trade Show

The Minnesota Newspaper Association is pleased to present its 149th Annual Convention, January 28-29, 2016. This year’s theme, “Newspapers: The Foundation of Vibrant Communities,” recognizes the vital role newspapers play in communities of all size across the state.

The MNA convention is held annually in Bloomington, MN and features a wide range of networking and training opportunities, MNA’s Better Newspaper Contest Awards Banquet, a lively trade show and silent auction as well as MNA’s annual meeting. More than 700 newspaper professionals – publishers, editors, reporters, photographers, designers, circulation managers, advertising professionals – and journalism educators and students attend each year.

In 2016, we are pleased to again partner with the Northern States Circulation Managers and welcome its members to take part in all convention activities.

Don’t miss out on a minute of the convention fun, when you stay on-site! Last year, our group room block SOLD OUT so be sure to make your reservations before the Friday, January 8, 2016 deadline.
