MDNA’s Ohio Valley Chapter is proud to welcome fellow MDNA Members and Premier Vendors from around the world, to the 2019 Weekend With the Pros on Friday and Saturday, September 20-21st. This event will be preceded by the B.O.S.S. Seminar on Thursday, September 19th.
We moved up the date for WWTP in order to celebrate the second-largest Oktoberfest in the world (the first being the original in Munich, Germany), Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is a three-day celebration of German heritage, beer, and food held over this same weekend!
Join us for the WWTP tours, education, networking social events and the wonderful German Food and Beer!
Location is everything with this year’s event hotel, the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter, located on the banks of the Ohio River and just a short walk away from Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, the Paul Brown Stadium (home of the Bengals) the Great American Ballpark (home of the Reds) and across the river from Cincinnati’s most exciting dining and entertainment venue, The Banks. The Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter features guest rooms with beautiful views of downtown Cincinnati and boasts a river-view restaurant, 10 West, an atrium bar and a fitness center and indoor lap pool.
