The Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wis., has opened a newly expanded conference center and banquet facility at its sister property, Glacier Canyon Lodge. Originally 25,000 square feet, the enlarged Glacier Canyon Lodge Conference Center features more than 55,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
"Construction is complete and now we have even more rustic elegant space to meet your event needs," reads an announcement on the resort's Web site.
Announced as early as January 2007, the conference center expansion was originally scheduled for completion in fall 2007. A year later, it's finally open, connecting to the resort's main building via an enclosed skywalk designed to save meeting planners both time and money, as attendees won't have to be transported to and from their lodging and their event.
The centerpiece of the expanded Glacier Canyon Lodge Conference Center is a new 14,823-square-foot ballroom, which can accommodate as many as 1,611 people and is divisible into nine smaller meeting rooms. The expansion also includes six breakout rooms, which collectively offer a total of 4,068 square feet of meeting space.
Existing space at the Glacier Canyon Lodge includes 10 breakout rooms totaling 10,730 square feet, a 539-square-foot boardroom, a 3,075-square-foot clubhouse at the Wild Rock Golf Club and an outdoor patio for up to 200 attendees.
