OTA Returns to Bismarck

OTA, an oranization dedicated to community builders and creatives in the OTA Region (N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Minnesota), will be hosting a one day event geared to connecting stakeholders in the region through a series of conversations, including interactions with the first class of OTA Builders, on Monday March 14 at Sixteen03 Main Events.

OTA: Bismarck is the ninth in a series of large-scale events that bring the creatives of this vast region together under the same roof twice each year. This event is extra special because it features our first class of OTA Builders. To kick off the day, the 20 diverse voices of the Builders from all parts of the region will share their creative- and community-focused work in conversations from 1-5 p.m. These sessions, which reflect the magic of the OTA experience, are inspirational, informational and interactive.
