Type: Venue Review
Overview: There are not a lot of good options in the Green Bay market but the KI convention center is one to consider.
Ballrooms: The property has a wide variety of ballroom space. The original footprint includes a couple of good size ballrooms which can be divided into smaller breakout space as well as a large expo hall. A recent renovation added a large upstairs ballroom with additional breakout space.
AV Staff and Equipment: In house is currently PSAV and they are exclusive for rigging but we have never had an issue bringing in outside av to the venue
Location: The convention center has two attached hotels which works well in the colder months. The onsite restaurant is the basic bar/restaurant however, there are multiple good restaurants very close. Lambeau Field (the Packers stadium) is a short drive away and is a highlight for attendees to visit.
Con: The rigging in the upstairs ballroom has a few holes so any larger set-up needs to take into account the rigging options. The expo hall on the first floor can get cold. Load in is also something that needs to be coordinated as the dock is small and the push upstairs is not short. We often will coordinate a load in using the expo hall and pull our trucks into the hall for load and unload.
