We have been hearing so much about the Sphere in Las Vegas since it opened a few months ago.  There have been bands performing there, and also some very cool earth shows.  All with a 360 degree spectacular imagery.  It's very cool.  It's even really cool to see from the air as you fly in or out of Vegas.

So, not to be undersold or outdone, other whatever adjective you'd like to insert here, Minnesota now has the....

Or, at least there will be soon.  It's not here yet.  But here is the plan.  Minneapolis will soon have what they are calling " one of the biggest immersive video technology event spaces in the country".  They do say that it's not going to be as big as the Sphere, but still something that will have a "wow" factor.

“Everyone’s visiting (the Sphere) in Vegas. So I think we’re on a smaller scale calling it the ‘Square’ because it gives you that same immersive experience the Sphere gives you,” Steve Hark of Entourage Event Group told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS this week.

Apparently the Square will be able to "transport" you anywhere in the world.  Like you could feel like you are having dinner in Italy, or be on top of the Eiffel Tower, or somewhere else equally as tantalizing.

One of the big differences will be the fact that they will not be able to have an outside visual aspect, like the Sphere does.  From the outside it will look like any other warehouse, for the most part.  But inside, that's where the cool, transportation experience will happen.

The venue will be open to several events, even weddings, if that is something you would be interested in. There will also be the possibility to use the venue to scale.  Like if you have a very large group, they will be able to accomodate that, along with also being able to scale back to a small group of people.  Many options.  Almost like a "will build to suit".

If you have an interest in booking an event at this future venue, the Entourage Event Group will soon be booking tours to check out the facility and see the potential.
