The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.

 

In two weeks, I’m headed to Indianapolis (where I was born and raised) for MPI’s World Education Congress (WEC18), and I can’t wait. Not only will it be nice to see Indy all decked out for the convention, but I will love seeing how the world receives my hometown.

 

Have you let your favorite vendor, event planner or venue know how much you appreciate them by voting for them in Northwest Meetings + Events Best of 2018 readers’ choice awards? No? Well, what are you waiting for? Show them some well-deserved love!
