February 29, 2024

The Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development (DEED) Office of Broadband Development is hosting the Celebrating 10 Years of Connecting One Minnesota-Broadband Event on Tuesday, March 12, 2024. This hybrid event will bring together people in Minnesota from Internet Service Providers, the federal, state, tribal, local governments, and advocates from across the state. Connecting people to people, people to information, and people to resources in Minnesota is critical to our economic stability and digital opportunity. The event will start at 8:30 am with registration and coffee and a light breakfast, and end with closing remarks at 4:15pm. There will be an opening and welcome from DEED and State leadership, a networking lunch, and 8 different panels and fireside chats throughout day.
