Minnesota Marketing Partnership

Thank you to the Minnesota Marketing Partnership (MMP) who helped us create this effort. The MMP is made up of state, regional and local economic development organizations, utilities, and other partners who come together to promote Minnesota through one coordinated brand and point of contact for site selectors, corporate real estate professionals and others interested in starting or expanding their business in the state. This public-private partnership works together to develop broad-based marketing initiatives to promote Minnesota and its business economy across the country and the world. The MMP is administered by the MN Department of Employment and Economic Development Office of Business Development and we invite you to Join Us!

Registration Open

With 2020 and 2021 behind us, we finally got out in 2022 and attended several trade shows, and conferences. We showcased Minnesota on a Road Show to Charlanta and a FAM tour in Chicago. We enjoyed promoting the state along with several of our MMP members. Thank you to those who participated in the various events in 2022! We look forward to promoting Minnesota as the premier location for business startups and expansions in 2023 – we hope you come along with us!
