Madison, WI: Easy to connect. Impossible to forget. 

Our capital city sits upon an isthmus between lakes Mendota and Monona, which means visitors get all the natural beauty plus the perks of a city. It’s easy to get to Madison with direct flights to and from major cities nationwide, from Denver to Dallas to D.C. Once here, you can walk to everything you’ll need: dining, shopping, museums and more. We’re proud that our destination was designed with green meetings in mind, from the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed, Platinum LEED-certified Monona Terrace convention center to the 29 acres of greenspace on Willow Island at Alliant Energy Center.  

Get set to be impressed by walkable, sustainable, unforgettable Madison.
