Looking for a rustic barn as the venue for your next event, but missing only one thing: the actual barn? Well, Seattle-based startup Tentwood Events has a solution: a 1,000-square-foot popup barn. 

Tentwood is the brainchild of Kelsey Von Stubbe, who was inspired to introduce the venue option when she was planning her own wedding and wanted something other than the traditional white tent. She parlayed her experience at Seattle’s Teatro ZinZanni—which performs in an antique Spiegeltent, a large traveling tent—to design the portable pastoral space. 

Tentwood’s pop-up barn was engineered in the Pacific Northwest and manufactured with an aluminum frame, wooden wall panels and aged steel roofing to create a realisticlooking country barn. The traveling venue features 1,000 square feet of space and a 14-foot-tall ceiling and can accommodate as many as 100 people seated or 120 people standing. Although it does not offer traditional flooring, planners can rent add-ons, such as a dance floor, a bar, and tables and chairs. The barn can be set up and taken down in one day by Tentwood’s production crew.

Tentwood Events is now available to book for events taking place as soon as spring 2018.  

Whether it’s the sheen of the snow-covered mountain slope in the background or the lush forest surrounding a two-story, floor-to-ceiling window spread, art is simply more sublime in mountain towns.

Napa Valley’s Meritage Resort & Spa recently debuted a new program designed to help groups gathering at the resort achieve more “Mindful Meetings.” The program, offered in partnership with Bare Health, can be custom tailored for groups and includes the following wellness-focused activities: meditation, yoga in the vineyard, sound healing, and the creation of juices, smoothies and morning elixirs at the resort’s brand-new Food & Wine Center.

 

After continually hearing that meeting planners were looking to infuse more health, wellness and sustainability into their agendas, Hilton Hotels & Resorts created Meet with Purpose in 2015. As it has evolved, the turnkey program—and its focus on Mindful Eating, Mindful Meeting and Mindful Being—has been increasingly customized to reflect each hotel and each meeting.
