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 vibrant city. It’s easy to get to Madison with direct flights from 17 cities nationwide, from Denver to Dallas to D.C. Once you’re 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.
