    New partnership brings organized approach to small and midsize trade shows. 

IMS Technology Services and Alliance Exposition Services have teamed up to assist managers of smaller to midsize trade shows to better execute their events. IMS, a full-service audio-visual company with event staging and systems integration solutions, and Alliance, the only Nationwide General Service Contractor focusing exclusively on smaller to midsize events, will together provide a seamless support system—and one point of contact—in coordinating event production needs and exhibitor management services.

“Clients will be able to upgrade the look and feel for exhibitors and attendees," says Paul Wedesky, COO of IMS." This will give midsize shows options, a bigger scale event without expanding their budget, and it will help them grow by connecting them with sponsorships.”

Wedesky also says that internet providers and registration companies are also in the works to create the "complete package": a seamless product for registration to simplify the process for event professionals. "Planners will be able to customize a program with consistency, both out front and behind the scenes." 

Cafe and Bar Lurcat in downtown Minneapolis is an elegant, multifaceted haven for food lovers looking to host an event. This chic, yet urban venue offers delectable cuisine and three private event spaces—and for their special events, Cafe and Bar Lurcat partners with D’Amico Catering, a Twin Cities hospitality company that has served the area for over 30 years. 

 

Crafting experiences from the heart, Brian and Sarah Ingram, chefs and owners of Purpose Restaurants, built their brand from the universal truth that great things can happen over a shared meal.  

“We are not just serving food, we are creating an experience through a meal,” says Brian.

With a portfolio consisting of Hope Breakfast Bar in St. Paul and St. Louis Park, and The Gnome in St. Paul, Purpose opened the latest addition, The Apostle Supper Club at The Radisson Hotel Duluth, on May 6.  

 

Do you ever wonder what St. Paul was like in the era of gangsters and organized crime? With the help of the Wabasha Street Caves’ Saint Paul Gangster Tours, you can learn from a mobster (in costume) about what life was like as outlaws in the city, the places they would frequent, and the crimes they committed.
