Three hundred meeting and event professionals gathered at Aria on March 31 for MNM+E’s 14th annual Best of Minnesota awards. Guests walked the red carpet (sponsored by Canterbury Park Catering & Events), posed at the Snapz Photo Booth and sipped bubbly from an aerial bartender (sponsored by Roseville Visitors Association). Saltee filled the main room with live music.

Local refreshments from Surly and Cannon River Winery were served, while Fabulous Catering’s heavy appetizer spread included mini lobster rolls and noodle stir fry in takeout containers. Mintáhoe Catering & Events’ decadent dessert selection ranged from cake pops to cupcakes. Attendees left with gift bags (sponsored by Mall of America and Bloomington CVB) that contained a signature DoubleTree by Hilton cookie, among other goodies. Meet Minneapolis sponsored the event’s registration. AVEX and Festivities provided the A/V (including a light-up curtain behind the stage) and décor, respectively
