The Hospitality 1st Roundtable is a collaboration of hospitality service providers including transportation, hotels, meeting venues, attractions, restaurants, nonprofits, and other visitor service providers. It is open to all business members in our community. We work in partnership with area businesses, employees, and non-traditional service providers to create an exceptional community experience by focusing on great service and delivery of community assets and services. We help to maximize the usage and understanding of community resources through our community partners including the Rochester Sports Group, the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce, and Experience Rochester MN. 
The group meets on the 4th Thursday of each month at 9:45 a.m. Meeting dates are altered for holidays or special events.
