HOSPITALITY ECONOMIC RECOVERY MOVING FORWARD IN MINNESOTA
On April 1, 2020, the Minnesota Lodging Association, Minnesota Resort and Campground Association and Minnesota Restaurant Association united to become one, under the name Hospitality Minnesota.
As our industry navigates its greatest challenge, coming together with a unified voice to tell the story of how we fuel Minnesota’s economy and weave the fabric of our communities. It helps us share the breadth of the immense impact of the industry—1 in 10 Minnesota jobs are in hospitality and our industry collects and remits 18% of the state’s sales tax—and how the crisis is devastating our member businesses. Speaking with one voice highlights our interdependence and lets us shine a light on the inspiring actions you are taking to continue to serve and fight for your businesses.
Each of our three associations has been around since the 1930s, weathering all kinds of crises. Together, we will get through this one too. Throughout the pandemic, we have been bringing you information and resources to help you keep moving forward. In the months and years ahead, we will offer opportunities to connect with others who are facing the same challenges and opportunities, in the hopes of generating new partnerships and business opportunities and strengthening the industry. Through it all, we will continue to look out for you and advocate for your interests. We hear you and we are here for you.
