The city comes alive when sessions end and attendees venture out to see all things uniquely Milwaukee, which are displayed in VISIT Milwaukee’s video. This is the city built on beer and brewing that is also an Old-Fashioneds oasis and Bloody Mary metropolis. It is America’s Third Coast with the flying Milwaukee Art Museum on Lake Michigan and the home base of Harley-Davidson. Milwaukee is the community of culinary convergences from traditional fare like cheese curds and bratwurst to cuisine created by James Beard-recognized chefs. The city is the site of the tavern that pedals on the pavement and paddles on the water. All of it is totally random, totally wonderful, and totally Milwaukee.
“Milwaukee has so many experiences to share with its visitors, and we want convention attendees to see themselves having all those experiences,” Bloemendaal said. “When you watch this, we want you to picture yourselves sampling local beers while enjoying a fish fry at Lakefront Brewery, cycling through the city, winning big at a lively bingo game, cheering on the racing sausages at Miller Park, and kayaking on the Milwaukee River.”
See VISIT Milwaukee’s latest meetings and conventions video on YouTube. Many meeting planners nationwide are receiving a special Milwaukee box that includes this video and a sampling of wonderfully random items from the city – such as beer soap, The Milwaukee Chocolate Bar, and a mini cheesehead. Meeting planners can check out VISIT Milwaukee’s website to start planning their own Milwaukee experience today.
