Partners Pass

In place of the traditional partners program, MNL is now offering for purchase a Partners Pass.  This Pass admits the ticket holder into all evening functions including; opening ceremony, trade show, MNL shed party and the banquet.  A Partners Pass is NOT the same offering as the Partners Program that was available in previous years.  Cost is $200 per person.  Partners Pass


The Delta Hotel does NOT provide parking for all hotel guests and parking in the downtown area is very limited.  ParkCards are available for metered parking in the area.  This is a cashless way to use the electronic parking meters operated by the City of St. John's.  The ParkCard functions in a similar manner to a credit card, only it is exclusive to parking meters. ParkCards can be purchased at the St. John's City Hall and in any increment between a minimum of $20 to a maximum of $100.  An additional two dollar fee will be applied to the purchase of each ParkCard at the time of purchase.
