Additional Comments:

Speaking Of Rochester ...

"I was impressed by the vibrancy of downtown, great high-end restaurants and shopping at all levels. I have worked in big cities like London and Rochester has small-town closeness, but also the level of service that is up to big cities' standards. The level of expertise and services was as great as I've seen in larger cities, but the connections are like a small town friend. The staff treated us as their personal friends."

Marian Bender Executive Director (2009) Minnesota Waters

"The Rochester Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Mayo Civic Center and the hotels are a pleasure to work with. They provide wonderful service and promptly respond to our needs."
