Meeting planners will save time planning meetings and special events in Wisconsin with the new, free online Event Site Quotes tool at WisconsinLodging.org. This tool allows casual and professional meeting planners the opportunity to enter in all their event site requirements, and automatically distribute their quote request to lodging properties and convention centers around the state, or just in a select area.

Properties able to accommodate the meeting or event details will reply directly to the planner with a competitive quote for the meeting or event.

The easy-to-use Event Site Quotes tool will allow planners to specify:

  • Function space needs
  • Food & beverage needs
  • Sleeping rooms needs
  • Audio/visual needs

By using Event Site Quotes, meeting & event planners will:

  • Outline meeting or event space needs and deadlines just once
  • Save time checking availability of function space AND sleeping rooms at multiple venues
  • Reach more potential sites in Wisconsin than any other resource
  • Select one or many areas in the state

Save time planning your next event – visit Event Site Quotes to get started today!
