ITE 2018 Annual Meeting and Exhibt


The headquarters hotel for the Joint ITE/Midwestern and Great Lakes District 2018 Annual Meeting and Exhibit is the Hilton Minneapolis, located at 1001 Marquette Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN.

ITE Group Rate:

ITE’s sleeping room block (and the Minneapolis Hilton hotel overall) is sold out of rooms on 8/19 and 8/20.  There remains limited availability for the nights of 8/21-8/23.  

If you are unable to secure your sleeping room at the host hotel Hilton Minneapolis (1001 Marquette Avenue South), the hotel has suggested two alternative Hilton properties.  A Hilton DoubleTree across the street and a Hilton Curio property called The Marquette down the street. Both are great hotels that are within easy walking distance of the Hilton Minneapolis.  To assist with your booking, the hotel provided the links below.  ITE will honor the host hotel registration discount with these two properties until the Early Bird Deadline of June 29.

DoubleTree – 1101 LaSalle Ave

The Marquette – 710 S Marquette St

As a reminder, ITE has no affiliation with any third-party room brokers.
