Destination: Milwaukee

Destination: Milwaukee

The Midwest's Coolest City. America's Best-Kept Secret. An Emerging City for Meetings and Event Destinations. National Geographic: Best of the World 2023. These are just some of the headlines touting Milwaukee. No longer a city on the rise, Milwaukee has arrived as a major events destination. And a top events destination deserves a world-class convention center.

What they're saying...

Jaime Risch
Great Wolf Resorts
“Connect Marketplace will continue to be at the top of our list of trade shows. We have walked away from each event with a number of successes, new connections, creative activations, and new revenue producing opportunities. The Connect team has always been immensely supportive of all our Great Wolf properties, and aligned us with opportunities to make more connections with planners. This year at Connect Spring Marketplace in Puerto Rico, we walked away with $1.4 million in new lead opportunities. This is a first for our brand.”
