"Milwaukee is one of my all-time favorite destinations. The people are so welcoming and friendly, the food is delicious, and so much is within walking distance for our attendees. The city has a great, relaxed vibe. Beautiful architecture, views of the lake, a rich tribal cultural history and influence, and all the restaurants and museums all within a short distance from downtown make it very popular and why we return for meetings again and again." – Annarae Steele, National Congress of American Indians
"NASC hosted the 23rd NASC Sports Event Symposium in Milwaukee in April 2015. Of all previous Symposium hosts, Milwaukee is the only city to have hosted the Symposium twice in the conference’s 23 year history, and with good reason! The convention center is fantastic and located in close proximity to top-notch hotels. The 2015 Symposium exceeded attendance goals and increased attendance by 13%, with nearly 1,000 sport tourism professionals in town for the three day conference, our highest attendance to date. We thank VISIT Milwaukee and its partners for a wonderful experience. VISIT Milwaukee has set the bar high for future hosts!" – Lori Gamble, Associate Executive Director, National Association of Sports Commissions
