From the latest NFA e-Newsletter:
"It’s official: The 45th Annual NFA Convention will be held August 10–13, 2017, at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with guest rooms at the Hilton and Hyatt.
Located in vibrant downtown Minneapolis, the convention center offers a state-of-the-art auditorium, a single hall to house all exhibits, and a centralized space offering close proximity for all performances and exhibits. The Hilton (accessible via skywalk) and Hyatt are adjacent to the convention center. Minneapolis is easy to get to from anywhere by ground or air, and once you’ve arrived, the city offers myriad treats within quick and easy reach by transit or on foot. Minneapolis’s famed skyway system connects 52 blocks—nearly five miles—of downtown restaurants, shops, living quarters, and cultural destinations.
