A Sponsored Message from Wisconsin Dells Visitors & Conventions Bureau


This scenic city in southern Wisconsin has everything you need for your next meeting, wrapped in a wildly creative attitude that will inspire smiles from every one of your attendees.

Wisconsin Dells knows how to show its visitors a good time. Set along the picturesque Wisconsin River, the city welcomes more than four million visitors annually—including about 5,600 meetings per year—and boasts facilities that can accommodate groups of nearly any size. Whether you’re planning a convention at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions, a team-building event at Noah’s Ark Waterpark, or a tournament at one of the area’s seven championship golf courses, a meeting in the Dells means plenty of options for you and plenty of fun for your attendees.

More Than Enough Space

Wisconsin Dells is home to 500,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, as well as 90,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space. Whether it’s an intimate meeting room you’re seeking or banquet space for 3,300, it’s easy to find a venue to accommodate your needs. You’ll also have your choice of 8,000 guest rooms—ranging from elegant hotel suites to lakeside condominiums to rustic retreats—that can perfectly match your meeting style.

Everything Within Reach

Located about 40 miles from Madison’s Dane County Regional Airport, the Dells sits surrounded by glacier-carved sandstone formations along the Wisconsin River—a beautiful backdrop for your gathering and a place where attendees can unplug and focus on the task at hand. Another bonus? Within just 19 square miles, you’ll find more than 90 restaurants and bars to choose from for formal and informal meals alike, be it post-meeting drinks at the rustic River’s Edge Pub & Grub, fine dining at Double Cut Charcoal Grill/Liquor Bar or a stack of buttermilk pancakes and other hearty breakfast favorites at Mr. Pancake.

In With the New

This fall, the Dells will see a dramatic increase in convention space thanks to the expansion of the popular Kalahari Resorts & Conventions. By adding an impressive 112,000 square feet to its convention center, you can now take your pick from 10 new meeting rooms (45 total) as well as a new 52,000-square-foot ballroom/exhibit space in addition to the already existing 20,560- and 17,200-square-foot ballrooms. Be one of the first to take advantage of these brand new, state-of-the-art facilities.
