Wisconsin Dells Celebrates Global Meetings Industry Day

Glacier Canyon Lodge meeting space at Wilderness Resort

It's no secret that the waterparks in Wisconsin Dells are full nearly every weekend, and when families pack up the memories they made and head home, business professionals check in and fill up our convention centers. This not only means more business, but employers are able to retain staff throughout the week. The benefits of conventions, exhibitions, and trade shows in Wisconsin Dells ripple well beyond the walls of the meeting space. Area restaurants, retail outlets, and gas stations see more business. The corresponding workforce and wages earned continue to stimulate commerce in our local economy. The impact is felt long after conference delegates have departed home. Meetings mean business and is a very important generator of economic impact in the Wisconsin Dells area.

With over 5,600 meetings held in the area every year, Wisconsin Dells is clearly a top Midwest destination for group business. So, how is “The Waterpark Capital of the World” making a splash among both meeting planners and attendees alike? Let’s examine just three reasons why more people are choosing to #MeetInTheDells:

500,000 Square Feet of Flexible Meeting Space

We have larger convention centers able to fit upwards of 9,000 people and mid-size properties that allow enough creative space to get work done but aren’t overwhelming in the process. There is also plenty of meeting space available outside the traditional board room. From pavilions to theaters to rustic barns and even on a river boat, you can find the space to fit your group’s size and personality.

The Perfect Blend of Business and Leisure

The business travel industry refers to this as “bleisure” and we have the perfect recipe for it in Wisconsin Dells. With over 200 waterslides, 90+ attractions and well above 100 restaurants it’s no wonder meetings booked in Wisconsin Dells score high in attendance. More and more attendees are bringing the family along and extending their time in the area, making a family vacation out of it.

The Scenery is Tough to Beat

One of the most defining factors of Wisconsin Dells is the Wisconsin River that meanders through the area and the towering rock formations that form along its shorelines. Scenic river tours allow groups to discover the scenery, history and mystery of the Wisconsin River. In addition to the river, three state parks call the Wisconsin Dells area home and an additional man-made lake add to the appeal and natural beauty of this beautiful place we call home.
