Community Highlights: Meet Heidi Klotzman of HeidnSeek Entertainment

Today we’d like to introduce you to Heidi Klotzman.

Hi Heidi, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started my business, HeidnSeek Entertainment, in 2005 while in school at Goucher college. Ever since I was a child, I loved bringing people together and connecting them to each other. I coordinated a VH1 Save The Music benefit my senior year of high school to benefit local music programs, and that inspired me to go further. I began by promoting Baltimore nightlife to young professionals and then branched out to curating concepts at venues all over the city. These included business networking events, charitable fundraisers, fashion shows, and talent showcases. By this time, I had developed a following of thousands of email subscribers in their twenties and thirties. I then went on to plan, consult on and market events and businesses for clients.

Clients include brands such as Bozzuto Group, Johns Hopkins University, The City of Baltimore, Weller Development, Sagamore Pendry Hotel, Rams Head Group, Green Spring Station, Shops at Kenilworth, Power Plant Live, Horseshoe Casino, and many non-profits, musical artists, festivals, upscale real estate, dining, and retail.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Challenges are to be expected, and we’ve had plenty. Maturity and wisdom have come in steps and back steps. Lessons all around from not knowing better and then knowing better, but not following your gut. Most recently, a pandemic shut down most of our industry, but we are rebounding. Praying for guidance is essential.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
HeidnSeek Entertainment is a marketing agency that promotes Baltimore’s small businesses, area arts programming and musicians through digital marketing, live music and DJ bookings for hospitality venues, and the curation of tastemaker events. We get behind the people and companies that we believe in and share with our audience and the greater Maryland market why they should believe in them and support them too. We have developed a strong following since 2005 with area professionals looking to us for the scoop on dynamic local businesses, events and festivals, bands, DJs, dining gems, and counsel on celebrating their special occasions.

Our wealth is in the human capital that can’t be quantified. Relationships, experiences, and lifelong memories. Other people’s connections forged on our watch. The friends and music made, love generated, and ideas sparked from those bonds. Media sponsoring charitable causes. Promoting local small businesses beyond their prior reach. Curating concepts and lists of delicious personalities to redecorate a business’s space and energy with hype that grows into concrete engagement. Nurturing good people and helping them find work. Watching other people when they first find out what you already knew about a talent.

We’re also proud of HeidnSeek’s work in our community over the years. We have made supporting Baltimore causes a priority since day one. We have media sponsored dozens of charitable fundraisers. We have proudly donated tens of thousands of dollars in advertising to local nonprofits such as Casey Cares Foundation, Living Classrooms, Baltimore Humane Society, Baltimore Child Abuse Center, Nami Baltimore, American Breast Cancer Foundation, American Red Cross, Animal Allies Foundation, Barcs, Fashion Rocks Autism, Ulman Cancer Fund, Brides Against Breast Cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, House of Ruth, Jewish Recovery Houses, Junior League, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Meals on Wheels, Moveable Feast, National Kidney Foundation, Planned Parenthood, Playworks, Sharp Dressed Man, Special Olympics, Suited to Succeed, and There Goes My Hero.

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
So many people deserve recognition. I always think back to the person who gave me my first professional opportunity at Club One in 2004: Bryan Burkert. I was and am not alone. Credit belongs to God, my parents, my partner in life and work, Mo, street teams, restaurant, venue, and club owners, managers and bar staff, other promoters, marketing, talent, and VIP event clients, musicians, DJs, non-profits, press, industry friends, contractors, PR firms, inspiring colleagues, interns, graphic and web designers, photo and video teams, and former and future guests.
