Testimonials

Thank you for hosting WMC’s annual events and programs. Aside from the absolutely beautiful facility and gorgeous views, the Monona Terrace event staff are nothing short of incredible. The customer service is outstanding – very professional, very hospitable. From the greeter, to the tech support, to the wait staff, everyone is always willing to go the extra mile and accommodate any last-minute requests to make our events run smoothly. WMC looks forward to working with you again.

I want to express my sincere gratitude for everyone involved in helping to plan our wedding at the Monona Terrace! Our reception was absolutely amazing and we received so many compliments on the space and food (especially the mashed potato martini bar)! It was everything I could have dreamed of. I saw Eartha along with all the other staff working hard to make sure the reception went flawlessly. The bartenders were great, and made sure my husband and I were happy! We had an amazing night and I can not possibly think of one thing that could have made it better. Thank you to everyone involved–it truly was a magical night thanks to everyone at the Monona Terrace!

I applaud Monona Catering (and just so you know, this is the 10th year that MC and our conference have worked together!) for the consistency and professionalism provided by all of the staff. A few new faces, but many returning staff…it’s like having a family reunion with all of the familiar faces! They all took such good care of us and handled any minor attendee issues swiftly.

Kimary, 28th Annual Conference on Distance Teaching & Learning

The GMCVB staff was outstanding – very committed, persistent (in a good way), friendly, and professional. Same with convention center staff. Our conference evaluations were exceptional this year and the service of the staff improved the conference experience for attendees. We set standards at this conference for our future meetings. Thank you!

American Society for Environmental History, March 2012

Thank you so much for everything [the Monona Terrace team] did to make the Conserving the Future Conference for the National Wildlife Refuge System such a spectacular and memorable experience for our attendees. The Monona Terrace is a world-class facility, and its amenities really helped us achieve our vision of a conference that minimally impacted the environment, inspired our people and could be broadcast out to a much larger viewing audience through the Web and social media.

What was more impressive, though, was the caliber of character in the amazing staff at the Monona Terrace. Every single person we interacted with had an unbridled enthusiasm, professionalism and positive attitude. Anyone who visits the Monona Terrace or hosts a meeting there can tell immediately that there is a spirit to the place and in its people, and we could not have picked a better facility to host our event in.

Cynthia M., National Wildlife and Refuge Service

I just wanted to send a note to express my thanks for all the great services you provided us in hosting our holiday party last Friday night. People are still talking about our party in the office, and that’s always a good sign! It was so very easy working with such professionals. Every detail was taken care of and it was a worry-free event for me.

The facility of Monona Terrace is a beautiful site and the staff and catering is top notch! The presentation of the Community Room and the tremendous food, waitstaff and door greeter made this a holiday party to remember.

I look forward to working with you again as any need arises here at JJR and won’t hesitate to recommend Monona Terrace to other businesses. Thanks again!

The event went smashingly! This was our highest turn-out that we’ve ever had for the event and people raved about how great the food and music were and how beautiful the room looked. All of the Monona staff were extremely accommodating and everyone was friendly and professional.

John M., Edgewood College

Wow! Our conference went really well; thanks to all your efforts and the behind-the-scenes staff. People were really pleased with the facility and how efficient everyone was. I look forward to working with you as we prepare for next year! It was truly a pleasure working with you!

Ann F., Wisconsin School Counselor Association

Thank you so much for your invaluable help onsite. We had a great Congress!
The program ran smoothly; the food was delicious; the venue was breathtaking and very well adapted to our group size. People enjoyed the Promenade and Terrace with the large windows. They also loved being able to walk out and “taste” the city. We are getting very good reviews already. Thank you!

Sandrine M., Congress for the New Urbanism

The entire staff at Monona Terrace worked very hard to exceed our expectations and make our members and guests feel welcome. We very much appreciate your efforts in helping to make this year’s state conference one of the best ever. Members consistently gave Monona Terrace high marks for the quality of your facility and services. The Monona Terrace staff was willing to go the extra mile to accommodate our needs and last-minute requests. For this, we remain eternally grateful.

William B., American Institute of Architects Wisconsin

“The staff at Monona Terrace is amazing. They consistently take care of every need in a professional, efficient manner and are pro-active and incredibly helpful. The space is beautiful, inviting and impeccably maintained. The Monona Terrace makes me look good every year.”

Jeanne C., WISCONSIN Cheese ORIGINALS Festival

I have had my annual kickoff meeting at the Monona Terrace for seven years. The facility and the people have always far exceeded my expectations. As a matter of fact, our Chairman of the Board attended this year’s function and commented that the Monona Terrace is a world-class facility. This comes from a business leader who has been at meetings all over the world!”
