metroConnections Celebrates 35 Years in Events Business

Bloomington-based conference, event, stage production and transportation provider commemorates milestone anniversary with look back at growth and industry change

MINNEAPOLIS (April 15, 2019) – metroConnections leadership is pleased to celebrate their 35th anniversary with their nationwide staff, clients and industry partners.

The Bloomington-based company has grown from humble beginnings when it was founded in 1984 by Sam Thompson with $3,000 in startup funds. Thompson was a sales manager at a northern Minnesota resort who realized that corporate guests needed specialized transportation when they arrived into town. metroConnections began by handling bus charters for corporate clients and grew into a full-service destination management company (DMC), expanding their services in the Twin Cities area to convention, association and corporate clientele.
