Planner Tools

Welcome to Wausau/Central WI! We believe our destination offers the best of big-city amenities, while providing small town value and unrivaled hospitality. One aspect of that hospitality is making your job as a planner easier by taking some of the details off your plate, allowing you to focus on helping your attendees learn and do business together.

The Official Wausau/Central Wisconsin Visitors Magazine

This is the definitive four-season guide to the Wausau area. It’s filled with information on hotels, restaurants, shopping, area attractions, and great maps to help you get around town. We provide this publication as part of our registration table display or include them with our delegate bags.

Available 24 hours a day, our website is a great tool for researching Wausau/Central Wisconsin when it’s convenient for you. The website contains all our meeting facility information and links to our main website that has calendar of event information, downloadable maps, and more.

Publicity Assistance

Wausau is a media center for many surrounding communities and we can help promote your function by distributing your press release information to our newspapers, local radio and television stations.

Special Welcomes

It can be as simple as a letter, as large as a marquee sign, or as meaningful as a warm welcome in person. The CVB would be happy to coordinate a show of support by local businesses and area dignitaries to let your attendees know that we’re glad you’re here.

Speaker/Entertainment Referrals

Need a speaker to enlighten your group? Trying to find a band? Need a master of ceremonies? With some advance notice, the CVB can determine who is available locally and forward their names to you for consideration.

Vendor Referrals

Don’t hinge the success of your event on the flashiest ad on the internet. From caterers to communications, galleries to golf courses, and florists to photography; the CVB can solicit bids on your behalf or recommend suppliers for you to contact.
