Bloomington, Minnesota: Simply Central and the Home of Mall of America

Bloomington has it all — a central location, outstanding facilities, exceptional dining, and countless attractions. Plus, it’s home to major corporate headquarters, miles of green space, and the one and only Mall of America.

Simply Central

Bloomington is adjacent to Minneapolis and St. Paul and just minutes from MSP International Airport, making our destination a central location for meetings, conventions, and tourism. As the home of Mall of America and 40 hotels with over 9,000 guest rooms, we are sometimes referred to as the hospitality capital of Minnesota. Most of our hotels offer free shuttle service to both Mall of America and MSP, and meeting space accommodates groups from 10 to 2,000.

Mall of America

Bloomington hosts more than 40 million travelers each year who are making a shopping pilgrimage to North America’s largest retail and entertainment complex. The one and only Mall of America (MOA) contains over 520 stores (with no sales tax on clothing or shoes!), 50-plus restaurants, and more than a dozen attractions. Unique spots such as Nickelodeon Universe, SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium, and Crayola Experience delight meeting attendees. Many of MOA’s restaurants and attractions offer special or behind-the-scenes experiences for groups.

The Bloomington CVB offers a wide array of services to help your meeting be more successful and stress-free. When you submit an RFP through Cvent, turnaround time is 24 hours or less.
