Meetings Resources


"Bringing over 3,500 people to the UWEC campus and Eau Claire community for NCUR 2023 would not have been possible without the help and guidance of the staff at Visit Eau Claire.  Their partnership in planning “Crossing the Bridge” (a downtown street fair) during this undergraduate conference on research was amazing.  Each time we reached what we thought was an obstacle, VEC had an easy solution at hand.  Their willingness to see this event through from beginning to end with a representative attending in person each step of the way was incredibly comforting and made the event not only possible but successful."

- Karen Morris (2023 NCUR Conference)


"We try to host our event in more accessible areas of the state. Eau Claire has great hotels, and restaurants so our attendees who travel far can feel like they have everything they need. This past fall, we hosted our conference at Holiday Inn South in Eau Claire. The hospitality was fantastic, the food was amazing, and our attendees had wonderful things to say about their entire experience. We decided that Eau Claire was such a success for our conference in 2023 that we're hosting it in the area again this year. We're looking forward to giving our members another chance to see the rest of what the Eau Claire region has to offer. The biggest tip I have for meeting planners considering Eau Claire for an upcoming meeting or event? Work with Visit Eau Claire! They are experts in all things EC and will help you in every aspect of planning your event. I also suggest that anyone having an event in Eau Claire create some time for their attendees to get out into the community. There are a lot of great small businesses, restaurants, bars and shops here to experience."

"Visit Eau Claire's commitment to our event was truly remarkable, and it significantly contributed to the overall success and positive experience for our conference attendees. Visit Eau Claire's generosity in not only sponsoring the event, but also providing welcome bags, a raffle basket, and attendee name tags was above and beyond our expectations. Furthermore, Visit Eau Claire's welcome speech that kicked off the conference was also very appreciated. It streamlined the networking process and created a buzz of excitement amongst attendees to explore the beautiful attractions that Eau Claire provides! We are fortunate to have a partner like Visit Eau Claire and look forward to the possibility of working with them again in the future!"
