Blandin Broadband conference: Walking tour of Duluth

The Blandin Broadband conference started today. It started with a walking tour of Duluth. The weather could not have been better. We got a mini-walking tour of Duluth. It was fun to see the new places –and some of the old places. We ended up at Teatro Zuccone, a new spot in town with a couple of theaters and a bar. It looks like a great place to see a show or just hang out. Apparently it just opened this fall and has been very successful.

We saw the following presentation from Drew Digby of Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) and heard from some of the locals. It was interesting to hear about what brought (or kept people in) people to Duluth. While many people enjoyed the outdoors, the arts, the size of the town, the colleges, – it was really the business opportunities that brought both people and businesses to the area.
