About the Conference

The annual TZD Statewide Conference will be a hybrid event this year! This means that the 2021 conference, scheduled for October 13 (full day) and October 14 (half day), will be held in person at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minnesota. In addition, the conference general sessions and select concurrent sessions will be available for live virtual viewing.

In our first general session, you'll get an insider's look at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) from president David Harkey. He'll provide an overview of the research being done by the IIHS and its affiliated Highway Loss Data Institute in the areas of crashworthiness, collision avoidance, advanced driving assistance systems, and more.

More information will be posted here as it becomes available.


Participant registration will be available in August.
