You, your staff, board members, partners and community members are invited to the

12th annual Montana Downtown & Main Street Conference
October 23-25, 2019
Downtown Missoula, Montana

Enjoy two full days of inspiration and education for all who focus on community development and engagement. Hosted by the Downtown Missoula Partnership and Destination Missoula, the conference will feature panel topics and tours of planning and implementation, arts and culture, marketing and events, place-making, and tourism to help build and promote your downtown.

The conference is open to Main Street and downtown district promoters, elected officials, city staff and planners, architects, engineers, property owners, business owners, chambers of commerce, and anyone interested in promoting and revitalizing downtowns and Main Streets.

Make it a weekend and attend the Missoula Children’s Theater production of Freaky Friday, visit the Saturday Morning Markets, or the Grizzly Football Game vs. Eastern Washington.

Stay at the recently-renovated Holiday Inn Downtown Missoula on the Clark Fork River or at the brand- new Missoula Mercantile Residence Inn by Marriott.  A limited number of rooms are available so reserve your lodging today.

This event was produced with support from Destination Missoula & the Missoula Tourism Business Improvement District.
