    Barn Raiser

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.  

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.

 

Despite an overall crushing year for the hospitality industry in Pennsylvania, some seeds of hope have been planted and are finally sprouting in the form of new hotel openings. These new properties on the horizon have ample meeting and event space up for grabs, all within close proximity of each other. As capacities allowances increase, check out the new real estate for meetings and events at the following hotels.

 

Making the most of Minnesota’s ideal (and ever-fleeting) outdoor event season is a time-honored tradition, but outdoor venues hold a whole new appeal in a post-pandemic landscape. 
Plein air events can offer planners plenty of space to safely distance their guests as well as peace of mind to attendees still wary of in-person gatherings—as well as some much-needed screen-free interaction.
