HelmsBriscoe, a global leader in meeting procurement, hosted its fifth annual HB Cares event, which impacted seven local charities including the Ronald McDonald House Twin Cities, Love Your Melon, The Simpson House, Bloomington Theatre and Art Center, MN Assistance Council for Veterans, Earle Brown Charter School and National Ataxia Foundation. The end-of-the-year holiday party was held at the Radisson Blu at the Mall of America on November 20. The firm raised over $70,000 this year to purchase care packages and other goods for the charities. Associates, clients and partners worked together at various stations throughout the night to assemble packages for homeless families, children going through chemotherapy, veterans, teen moms and more.

For more than 100 years, the Dayton’s building has been an important piece of Minnesota’s culture and economy as the home to Dayton’s and Macy’s department stores. The department stores served as anchors for the downtown retail and business district. Now, the landmark building at 700 Nicollet in downtown Minneapolis is being reinvented for the 21st century through a $350 million historic redevelopment. 

 

Sustainability and a broad range of uses are at the heart of the newly redesigned Minneapolis Convention Center Plaza located on the south side of downtown. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Sept. 30 to celebrate the 2.5-acre plaza that is built atop an underground parking ramp and includes a lawn area for events, updated lighting, and new walkways and seating options. 

 

With restrictions across the country in a state of constant flux, not everyone is ready to jump back into meeting in person. While some planners are eager to get back to “normal,” the long-term adjustment to new protocols and potential risks make some hesitant to gather.

While wearing masks and social distancing can help keep attendees safe, intentional design choices—such as including natureinspired elements and materials and plenty of plants—can also help calm attendees.
