July 2017 21 Courtesy Mayo Civic Center/Time Into Pixels A 7,500-square-foot outdoor plaza is part of the raft of improvements at the Mayo Civic Center. Mayo Civic Center Rochester, Minnesota Over the past year, the Mayo Civic Center has essentially doubled the size of its event capacity, which now features 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a new 7,500-square-foot outdoor plaza. The center's 40,000-square-foot ballroom is the largest ballroom in Minnesota. Among other venues on the property are a 15,000-square- foot auditorium, a 25,000-square-foot arena, a 25,000-square-foot exhibit hall and a 9,000-square-foot presentation hall. "One aspect of Mayo Civic Center that differentiates us is that clients aren't required to use an in-house caterer and can choose from four signature caterers recognized for superior service and cuisine," said Megan Malugani, marketing and communications coordinator at Rochester Convention and Visitors Bureau. With the widely respected health care nonprofit Mayo Clinic based in Rochester, the Mayo Civic Center draws a large number of health care and technology professionals each year, and the center's entertain- ment venues have hosted a variety of acclaimed guests, from Bon Jovi to the Dalai Lama. Attendees can access over 100 restaurants and 2,500 hotel rooms throughout the city by pedestrian skyways and climate-controlled underground walkways. A few popular nearby attractions are the Rochester Art Center, the Rochester Trolley tours and over 84 miles of bike trails. www.mayociviccenter.com "One aspect of Mayo Civic Center that differentiates us is that clients aren't required to use an in-house caterer and can choose from four signature caterers recognized for superior service and cuisine."
