Put ‘The Foot of the Lake’ at the top of your list

By: Hotel Retlaw | Aug 20, 2019

HotelFond du Lac and the Lake Winnebago Region feature legendary Wisconsin hospitality. The fact is, there’s no more convenient meeting location in Wisconsin than Fond du Lac — within an hour of 70% of the state’s major population centers. That means less time on the road, and more time for work and play –or is it play and work?

The region is dedicated to meeting excellence and exceeding expectations.

Downtown District

The elegant and welcoming Hotel Retlaw — one of the Midwest’s finest urban luxury properties in downtown Fond du Lac – is now open. This historic hotel features 121 luxurious guest rooms including 11 specialty suites. It offers flexible meeting space and upscale boardrooms coupled with modern technology, and provides an exceptional setting for corporate meetings, conferences, and social events. Grand opening incentives are available at Hotel Retlaw. For more information, call (920) 979-7271 or visit

Conference District

The region’s Conference District features 14,000 square feet of event space, including a 10,000-square-foot reception area, multiple breakout rooms, pre-function areas and 440 combined partner guest rooms (700 rooms citywide).

Thinking (and meeting) outside the box

Beyond the traditional, Fond du Lac and the Lake Winnebago Region offers meeting planners a variety of creative (and memorable) event venues. Most prominent among these venues is the world-class Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts, located just one block from the new Hotel Retlaw. If you dream it, Fond du Lac can make it happen.

And that thing about all work and no play?

That concept doesn’t exist in Fond du Lac and the Lake Winnebago Region. They know that the success of business events is often just as much a function of the fun attendees have after hours — fun they take home with them, and share with their peers.

Fond du Lac doesn’t disappoint with one of the largest fresh water lakes in America for fishing, boating, sailing and other water sports.

There’s also the natural beauty of Kettle Moraine State Forest and Horicon Marsh. The region also offers spectacular golfing, scenic biking and hiking trails, boutique shopping, and adventurous dining.

Fond du Lac also offers a downtown that lights it up with arts, entertainment and nightlife.

Enjoy a FAM tour of the Region, take a tour of their new luxury hotel, hear about the $5 million in new construction and remodeling in their conference district and enjoy all that’ll put Fond du Lac and the Lake Winnebago Region at the top of your meeting destination list.
