What do tourism, shoreline preservation, and 10,000 lakes mean for Minnesota cities?

During this two-day conference you’ll have the opportunity to sit down with mayors from across the state as you explore how tourism impacts jobs and creates sales in Minnesota communities, and what that means for our overall economy. Plus, discover what your role is as mayor in maintaining and restoring shorelines so Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes can be enjoyed now and in the years to come.

  • Discover the effect of tourism on Minnesota cities as you review the most recent travel and tourism economic impact highlights
  • Learn how shoreline restoration impacts overall lake quality
  • Enjoy a guided boat tour of Gull Lake’s shoreline management program
