Conference Location and Accommodations

Our conference venue is the Crowne Plaza St. Paul Riverfront Hotel in downtown St. Paul, MN. Exhibits and posters showcasing the latest in invasive species research and restoration work will be displayed in Governor’s Hall throughout the conference. Receptions and breaks are also planned for this area, which will give registrants many opportunities to visit with the exhibitors and poster authors.

The Crowne Plaza St. Paul Riverfront provides a beautiful setting for the Minnesota-Wisconsin Invasive Species Conference, with spectacular views of the Mississippi River and a central location in downtown St. Paul. Accommodations include free wifi in rooms and common areas, a complimentary newspaper in the morning, swimming pool and exercise facilities, and on site parking. St. Paul’s finest dining and entertainment venues such as museums, theaters, and the Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul’s largest multi function event space, are within a few blocks of the Crowne Plaza.

Attendees will be served coffee and tea breaks every morning and afternoon in addition to lunch on Monday and Tuesday and evening receptions on Monday and Tuesday. Many dinner options are available, as there are a number of excellent restaurants just steps away from the Crowne Plaza.

On Tuesday evening a reception will be held in the stunning “Windows On The River” on the 22nd floor of the hotel. Complimentary refreshments will be served as attendees network and socialize while taking in a breathtaking panorama of St. Paul and the Mississippi River Valley.
