for your next important meeting or special event.

Banquet Service team
Once you have chosen our facility and your event becomes definite, a banquet coordinator will
be assigned to work with you on the details of your event. Your banquet coordinator will create
a Banquet Event Order that will outline all details, including meeting times, room setups,
audio-visual, and food and beverage needs.
It is important that information regarding your event is communicated to the banquet
coordinator two weeks prior to your arrival. The more information you can provide us with, the
better we are able to prepare the service aspects of your event.
Business meetings and conventions today demand more technical resources and professional
support than ever before. Grand Casino Mille Lacs can help ensure success by coordinating all
of your equipment, staging, lighting, and electronic presentation needs.
