MMS 2017 Evals - The Results Are In!

We would like to thank our attendees, speakers, sponsors, Do Good Events, and especially our volunteers for helping make MMS an outstanding community event. It takes all of us collectively to create an event that exceeds expectations year after year, and we (the MMS staff) are very proud of that.

MMS 2017 results are in, and we're excited to share them with you.

  • 97% of attendees said that MMS 2017 is above average or great compared to other events
  • 96% of attendees said they would recommend MMS to their peers.
  • 95% said the technical depth was just right
  • 91% of attendees said they would return for MMS 2018 (pending approval to attend from work)

On top of our general feedback, we also query our speakers for feedback. Here's what they said:

  • 100% of speakers said they enjoyed presenting at MMS 2017
  • 92% of speakers said that they felt MMS fostered community
  • 100% of speakers said MMS 2017 was a great event, and 92% of speakers said they will return next year (pending approval)

We are very lucky to have the great combination of speakers, attendees and sponsors to make MMS a success. We also took your constructive feedback for venue, lunch time, logistics, and other session feedback, so that we can make MMS 2018 even better.

Look at our summary of feedback results here: MMS 2017 Evals are in!

Watch for more announcements later this week!


The MMS Team

Food at MMS

MMS does not include the cost of meals in our standard registration package. During MMS, you can enjoy complimentary coffee, water, and light snacks. For standard meals, we encourage you to take advantage of all the food located in and around the Mall of America, or consider our MMS Meal Plan option.

Special Discounts for MMS Attendees

Several restaurants are offering a special deal to MMS attendees. Simply show your badge and receive a discount at the following restaurants:

Dick's Last Resort

15% off

Bubba Gump Shrimp

Free appetizer with meal

Caribou Coffee

10% off

Buffalo Wild Wings (BW3)

10% off

Caribou is in the hall between Radisson Blu and the Mall of America. You will find the remaining restaurants in the Mall of Americas.

MMS Meal Plan

For some companies (and employees), it's easier for you to choose a registration package that includes food, rather than managing your receipts for each meal. When registering, simply select the meal plan for $50 per day, and at registration you'll receive a $50 gift card (per day) for the FireLake Grill House. You can then use these gift cards any time you choose, for any amount, for food and beverages.

FireLake Grill House

An attendee favorite for breakfast, lunch, dinner, AND drinks, the FireLake Grill House is right next to the conference center. You will find speakers mingling with attendees pretty much any time of day or night here. Great food (ask about their $10 beer and burger for lunch), and the cocktail bar is open till midnight during the week.

Dining in the Mall of America

And just a five-minute walk from the conference center you will find dozens of food choices. Andrew Zimmern's blog lists 7 Food Spots at the Mall of America that Don't Suck – that's a good start, but there are many more than don't suck, we promise.

Breakfast and Late Night

Caribou Coffee is next to the conference center. IHOP is just across the street for breakfast. And TGI Fridays is also next door and is open late. Chevy's is also a late night option.
