Pack Your Bags
You can expect October temperatures in Minneapolis to range between high 60s during the day and high 30s at night. Attire for the FPA Annual Conference is business casual, including special events such as the conference party. If the weather doesn’t already have you packing a jacket, make sure you bring one for meeting rooms (those are cold any time of year!).
Create Your Schedule
Download the FPA Annual Conference mobile app to start deciding which sessions you’ll attend, then create your schedule through the app or the event website.
The FPA Annual Conference is a paper-light conference. If speakers provide educational session handouts, they are available to download from the mobile app before, during and after the conference. Hard-copies of handouts and printing stations will not be available at the conference.
Upon Arrival in Minneapolis
Airport to Hotel Transportation Options
None of the contracted hotels offer a shuttle from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP), so please plan accordingly.
MSP has two terminals:
Terminal 1–Lindbergh and Terminal 2–Humphrey.
Terminal 1 operates Air Canada, Air France, Alaska Airlines, American, Delta, Frontier, Spirit and United.
Terminal 2 operates Icelandair, JetBlue and Southwest.
For a complete list of airlines and additional terminal information, please visit the MSP website.
Getting from the Hilton Minneapolis, Hyatt Regency or Millennium Minneapolis to the Convention Center
Linking most of downtown Minneapolis with above-ground climate-controlled walkways, the skyway system will connect you from the three contracted hotels to the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Full-service registration desks are located in the pre-function space between Exhibit Hall B and the Auditorium of the Minneapolis Convention Center. If your barcode email is printed and you don’t need to make any changes, visit one of the Self-Service Check-In counters to quickly check in and have your name badge printed.
