“Milwaukee is one of my all-time favorite destinations.  The people are so welcoming and friendly, the food is delicious, and so much is within walking distance for our attendees.  The city has a great, relaxed vibe.  Beautiful architecture, views of the lake, a rich tribal cultural history and influence, and all the restaurants and museums within a short distance from downtown make it very popular and why we return for meetings again and again.”
