VeeCon 2022 – When and Where

VeeCon 2022 will be held in the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota from May 19th to May 22nd, 2022, with the official conference opening on the morning of the 20th. Please make sure you arrive in Minneapolis on the 19th to attend the VeeCon opening on the morning of the 20th.

Why Minneapolis? Let’s hear from the VeeFriends CEO and Creator himself, Gary Vaynerchuk: 

“We chose Minneapolis, Minnesota for many reasons, but a key driver is that it’s known for the friendliness of its citizens (Minnesota Nice), and our values are built on kindness. Minneapolis is one of the fastest growing entrepreneurial hubs in the U.S. and we also have strong business ties there. The city is a vibrant, up-and-coming market and we cannot wait for VeeConners to experience our first inaugural event there.”
