Venue Spotlight: InterContinental Milwaukee!

Corporate events are about so much more than the doors guests walk through to enter the party of the year. An experience is created that needs to live up to the brand. Having a great team to walk you through that potentially overwhelming process can be make all the difference in making the most of the experience.

InterContinental Milwaukee is set to get a facelift in the coming year or so with a brand new look and concept for this premiere downtown location! The new concept is “art hotel,” and the art collections will be personally curated by Linda Marcus. They plan to be available for booking by summer of 2019.

The team of Theresa, Bryant, and Kara at InterContinental Milwaukee make using their beautiful modern space an obvious choice. Not only are they fantastic event professionals but they are really fun to hang out with!

InterContinental Milwaukee hosts corporate parties or conferences.

Both the upper and lower ballrooms are available as well as conference rooms on the 3rd floor that hold 20-30 attendees. A custom menu is available for small groups.

An advantage to booking a smaller venue like InterContinental Milwaukee is that if you’re hosting 150-200 attendees, you are the main event in the building instead of one of several.
