Out on the Town

Our off-site events are designed around industry trends and Midwestern hospitality.

From dining to entertainment (or both!) you'll enjoy connecting with friends and meeting new contacts as you delight in food, beverage and a few laughs in unique locations.

After-hours events include city tours, surprise dinner destinations, cocktail parties, formal dinners and more. Take a look at what's planned and get your tickets - reservations and advance registration are required for these experiences.

Area Restaurants

Search for area restaurants on WRA's Dining Guide to create your culinary itinerary. Reservations are recommended - the Midwest Foodservice Expo is a busy time for dining out!

It's all about... having a great time in Milwaukee.

Check back this fall for 2020’s special events!
