Unloading and Parking

If you are dropping off displays or materials for the Job Fair, there are two options for unloading at the Minneapolis Convention Center.  The job fair will take place in Exhibit Hall A which is two levels underground from the street level.  Materials can only be dropped off on Wednesday, February 22, after 7:30 a.m.

Unloading – Lower Level

To unload your materials on the lower level ramp, stop next to the marshalling guard station which is located off of 16th Street on the right.  Let the guard know you are dropping off materials for the MN Private Colleges Job Fair.  The marshalling guard will give you a pass to allow your vehicle into the lower level for unloading for up to thirty minutes.  You will be entering the Convention Center in the back of Exhibit Hall A.  After unloading, drive back up the ramp and park on the street level in one of the parking ramps available near the Convention Center.  Most of the ramps in the area are connected to the Convention Center through the skyway system.  Visit the website at http://www.minneapolis.org/minneapolis-convention-center/overview/directions-parking to locate the Minneapolis Convention Center street maps and parking ramps.  Employers are responsible for their own parking costs.

Unloading – Street Level

We will have courtesy staff/student workers available to assist you.  To unload your materials on the street level, pull into the curved unloading access road that is off 2nd Avenue and drive almost to the end of the access road (near Ballroom A/B).  Park next to the curb on the access road and look for students workers that will be there to assist you.  After unloading, park in one of the parking ramps available near the Convention Center.  Most of the ramps in the area are connected to the Convention Center through the skyway system.  Visit the website at http://www.minneapolis.org/minneapolis-convention-center/overview/directions-parking to locate the Minneapolis Convention Center street maps and parking ramps.  Employers are responsible for their own parking costs.
