What does it take to drive new events (and the people that come with them) into the Magic City for a weekend away? Recently, the answer is regional sports and competition.

Several events have been supported by the program, and conservative estimates suggest the total economic impact at the end of 2023 will be more than $10 million. Part of that program comes with a regular report to City Council on the progress. On December 19, Steph Schoenrock, Executive Director of Visit Minot provided the 2022 update. Watch below.
