Kapow Events, a unique online marketplace for corporate outings, kicked off operations in Minneapolis with the launching of its website on June 1. Kapow offers a wide range of event options, featuring highly regarded venues with reputable locations including cultural institutions, spectator events, restaurants, bars and many more.

“Typically, we’re working with companies with 10 or more people that want to go offsite for an event,” says John Waller, general manager of Kapow’s Minneapolis location. “We serve as the liaison for the corporate clients and venues and create very creative and thoughtful experiences.”

As a bustling metropolis and home to a vast number of Fortune 500 companies, Minneapolis is a prime location for Kapow. “The demand from corporate clients for corporate events in Minneapolis is very high,” Waller says. “I think Minnesota businesses will benefit greatly from having Kapow in their backyard.”

Kapow takes the stress out of event planning, allowing clients to leave the work to Kapow’s experienced team of industry pros. “If someone is planning an event, they’re usually doing it by themselves,” Waller says. “By handling the planning for them, we’re giving them that time back.”

“Clients are likely to talk about these events for years to come,” Waller adds. “It’s exciting to be working with the team and creating memorable experiences for people.” 

As co-presidents of Eureka Recycling, a social enterprise dedicated to demonstrating that waste is preventable—not inevitable—Kate Davenport and Lynn Hoffman want to help planners think beyond recycling bins and compost collection.

 

As the 13th largest metropolitan economy in the U.S., Minneapolis outperforms its peers, including Kansas City, Denver, Indianapolis and Charlotte when it comes to tourist attractions and hospitality. A vibrant food and music scene, world-class museums and theaters, an influx of upcoming hotels and venues— including a Four Seasons in 2022—and the tourist magnet that is the Mall of America, all combine with the great outdoors where scenic lakes abound—providing visitors to the city with many Instagrammable backdrops for any event.
