• Green Bay Packs it in with Renovated Ki Convention Center

    FROM THE Spring 2016 ISSUE

Here’s something even Chicagoans can get behind in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The city just
unveiled the newly renovated and expanded Ki Convention Center with sweeping views of the downtown district including floor-to-ceiling windows on the second floor that overlook the Fox River. But that isn’t the only benefit this space has. A whopping 34,000 square feet of space was added onto the building, bringing the total to 80,000 square feet. The space now offers a 25,000-square-foot ballroom and a 17,000-square-foot exhibit hall; the largest meeting room seats up to 3,600 people. There are also breakout rooms for small groups of 15 or more people, meaning groups of all sizes are welcome.

Ki Convention Center provides everything from an in-house A/V company to digital signage and portable staging. Hotels on either side of the center add 376 guest rooms, ensuring attendees have a place to stay and park while attending conferences

In 1927, Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas, will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.


The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.
