Green Bay, WI Meeting Planning Overview

Given its central Midwest location to Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, St. Paul, and Minneapolis, Green Bay, Wisconsin, offers planners an affordable and attractive option for regional meetings, conventions, conferences, trade shows and other events. Known for its big-city amenities and small-town vibe, the destination delivers a nice mix of recreation, culture, sports events, dining and accommodations for visitors. Modern meeting facilities and original off-site Green Bay event venues also add tremendous appeal for planners.

Located in Brown County, Green Bay sees most of its economic activity from the manufacturing, transportation and utilities sectors, while healthcare and insurance show signs of growth. Humana, Schneider National, Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, Georgia-Pacific, and Schreiber Foods are the top employers in the metropolitan area. Tourism is another sector that shows promise, with the Green Bay Packers generating great interest from sports fans. As for higher education, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is the main institution and home to the Weidner Center for Performing Arts, another popular facility for meetings and events given its variety of event spaces.

Green Bay-Austin Straubel International Airport (GRB), located in the villages of Ashwaubenon and Hobart, just outside of Green Bay, is the major hub of transportation with more than 200 aircraft taking off or touching down daily. Once in the city, visitors can get around via taxi, Uber, or hop on the Green Bay Metro, the public bus system operated by the city.

The diverse meeting facilities in Green Bay give meeting planners an edge when organizing programs: From traditional conference facilities to a major sports stadium, wineries and microbreweries, restaurants along the water and botanical gardens, there is certainly a space for any group, large and small. Located downtown, KI Convention Center holds the distinction of being the largest facility of its kind in Northeastern Wisconsin with 80,000 square feet of flexible meeting and convention space and 376 guestrooms connected between the Hyatt Regency Green Bay and the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Green Bay. Nineteen smaller breakout rooms accommodate anywhere room 15 to 1,800 delegates. Across the street from the airport, the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center boast the 2,800-square-foot Great Lakes Complex, the 8,000-square-foot Iroquois Conference Center and the 13,900-square-foot Three Clans Ballroom. When it comes to accommodations, Green Bay has 4,288 guestrooms throughout the metropolitan area, with more hotels being built to open within the next year.

Entertaining comes easy with several unique settings for memorable gatherings. Team spirit will likely surge when visiting legendary Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. Possibilities for parties here could include the Legends Club Room with a capacity for up to 800 for a reception or the Atrium Floor, which can accommodate up to 1,300 for a banquet. Other settings sure to spark conversation are the gorgeous Green Bay Botanical Garden with 10 locales for private events, and Parallel 44 Vineyard and Winery, a family-owned establishment known for its award-winning wines and scenic location near the Niagara Escarpment.

About Green Bay, WI / Additional Info

As Wisconsin's oldest city, Green Bay began as a center for trade. European entrepreneurs soon settled down here and set up shop to manufacture everything from hats to paper. Reminders of the past still remain. For example, the landmark Chicago & North Western Railway depot on Dousman Street has been transformed to the Titletown Brewing Company, and continues to be a popular spot in the community with its signature brews and event spaces.

Cultural attractions also provide a key to the city. Visitors travel back in time at Heritage Hill State Historical Park, which explores local life from the 1600s to early 1900s with some 27 buildings like the Fort Howard Hospital, Movarian Church and Allouez Town Hall giving insight into the past. The National Railroad Museum is another must-visit with collection highlights such as Big Boy, the world's largest steam locomotive on display.

A growing art scene is also taking over Green Bay. ARTgarage at the Cannery on Olde Maine promotes different creative genres with painters, poets, musicians and other individuals showcasing their talent at the cultural center, while the Meyer Theatre continues to welcome established and emerging acts to its famous stage.

Visitors may enjoy more casual outings at Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley & Family Fun Center, Comedy City or Kastle Park with its go-karts and miniature golf. Bay Beach Amusement Park is a must-see, home of Elvis' favorite roller coaster, the Zippin Pippin, and rides that are only 25 cents a ticket!
