Summit Travel 2017



 

Minneapolis

Critical Facilities Summit is moving up: both literally and figuratively. After a successful four-year run in Charlotte, we're heading north to Minneapolis, MN. Why Minnesota? The reasons are plentiful. There are 17 Fortune 500 companies that are headquartered in the Twin Cities region. The Twin Cities have emerged as a Top Tier2 Data Center marketplace. Combine those with a strong life science (i.e. labs and medical) population and it's emergence as a Midwest data center region, and quickly became a favorable destination for CFS. Don't forget the ease of traveling to Minneapolis with reasonable expenses.

ADA Accessibility

The 2002 expansion brought the entire Minneapolis Convention Center up to current ADA standards. In fact, the building received the Minnesota Access Achievement Award, presented by the Minnesota Society of Architects, for its attention to access:

  • All entrances in the front of the MCC have at least one set of power-assisted doors.
  • There are 3 unisex single-wheelchair restrooms.
  • Wheelchair seating and sound enhancement tools are available in the auditorium.
  • From the skyway, people can reach the first level of the MCC via accessible elevators and escalators.
  • Wheelchairs can negotiate walkways that are carpeted (no padding) with a depth of less than one half-inch of closely woven pile. In uncarpeted areas, the flooring is terrazzo tile.
  • The marshalling yard in the rear of the MCC may be used for raised van parking.
