On behalf of the entire Mysterium Committee, the Location Team is excited to announce that next year's Mysterium will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota!

The city for Mysterium 2010 was chosen through a combination of community-wide polling and much research. Because the top three cities on the poll turned out to be statistically tied (click here for the final numbers), we set out to do further research on each of the top cities to determine which was most ideal rather than let the randomness of the tie determine the location.

Minneapolis has a number of hotels to choose from that offer easy transit to and from the airport and provide the large meeting spaces we've come to rely on while maintaining affordable rates. The public transportation options provide a simple way around the city for those flying in, and those driving in will have an equally easy time of navigating the streets. Between museums like the Bakken Museum of Electricity in Life and the 370,000-square-foot Science Museum of Minneapolis, the shopping centers like the famous Mall of America, and the many parks and lakes within the city to explore, we think the city provides everything needed for a Mysterium city!

In the end, Minneapolis was chosen not only for its top place in the poll and outstanding qualities in the above-mentioned areas, but also because a few locals have volunteered to personally check out hotels, and advise on local transportation options and attractions. The ability to have people physically go to an area and find out information is critical to making Mysterium as affordable and enjoyable as possible.

In closing, we'd like to thank all of you for your patience while we worked to select a city and we want to wish all those who are attending Mysterium 2009 right now an awesome, fun and safe trip! If you were unable to attend this year (like those of us on the Location Team), we hope you'll be able to attend next year's!

Shorah!
TW, Odo, GermanShepherd (Location Team), and the rest of the Mysterium Committee
