Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center opened its doors after nearly 60 years of debate on July 18, 1997. It was first designed by Wisconsin native and internationally-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1938 as a cultural, governmental and recreational building. Wright reworked the design several times between 1938 and 1958 before signing off on the final plans seven weeks before his death in 1959.
The 250,000 square-foot, multi-level convention center surrounded by curving, geometric forms that converge with the breathtaking beauty of the natural environment. Spectacular glass vistas that accent flexible meeting and exhibition spaces. Dedicated staff that ensure that every detail is covered – from concept to execution. And all of it in the epicenter of one of the Midwest's most vibrant and inspiring communities.
With over 37,000 square feet of exhibition space, Monona Terrace offers the ideal setting to create memorable connections and establish mutually beneficial relationships. You’ll find world-class amenities and services – all designed to turn an ordinary trade show or exhibit into an extraordinary event.
