• BloomBooth Brings an Adaptable Photo Option to Events

Nathan Flatt, a Sacramento mechanical engineer, and Justin Straub, a marketing and business strategy guru, quit their day jobs last year to concentrate full time on BloomBooth, an innovative collapsible photo booth that is picture perfect for event planners (Straub has since sold his share to Flatt). The mobile contraption can be wheeled into a venue on a utility cart and unfolds into a full-size booth equipped with camera, computer and printer. With the ability to run on battery power as well as from an electrical outlet, the booth is adaptable to both traditional and out-of-the-way venues like rooftops and beaches. BloomBooth can be rented for events (accompanied by a photo concierge from BloomBooth) or leased for long-term use at bars, restaurants and other locations. It’s currently available in Sacramento, Napa, San Diego, Indianapolis and Atlanta, with new distribution points to be added by the end of the year. 

Kevin Hubschmann is a New Jersey-based comedian who has been making people laugh for most of his life. But after not finding as many opportunities to perform live even before the pandemic, he started hosting popup comedy shows in New York City in 2019 under the business name Laugh.Events (pronounced Laugh Dot Events).

 

In the wake of a total global crisis, the Meet Minneapolis team got to work. 

Connecting the Community

Last summer, as communities across the state reeled, the CVB launched the “We Need Us!” campaign as a rally cry and reminder on the importance of supporting the businesses that make Minneapolis so unique.

“It really came from this question of, ‘How can we support our community that’s hurting in so many ways and make locals feel comfortable making those choices?’” says senior vice president of destination branding & strategy Courtney Ries.
