If you’re in Minneapolis this week, get ready to see lots of smiling faces in red and khaki (and denim!) around the city. It’s Target’s annual week-long Fall National event, and thousands of team members and leaders from across the country are here to take part in team-building festivities.
This year’s lineup includes a variety of guest speakers, social activities, photo ops and interactive experiences with our brands and products. And of course, there’s the main event—the Fall National meeting on Wednesday afternoon at the Target Center—where our leadership team will share Target’s latest business updates, and a few yet-to-be-revealed music artists and other fun guests will pop in to entertain the crowd.
Why does Target create an event like this each year? It’s an important moment for our team—a thank-you for their hard work and a chance to celebrate achievements of the past year together. It’s also a time to reflect on challenges, learn new parts of the business, and get pumped up for the busy holiday season ahead. Attendees also get plenty of updates and inspiration to share with their teams back home as they prepare to make magic for millions of holiday shoppers.
OK, it’s time to kick things off. Want to ride along? Check back here throughout the week, because we’ll update this post as more of the fun goes down. You can also follow @TeamTarget on Instagram and @TargetNews on Twitter for highlights.
