Pre-function space

Some 16,000 sq. ft. for registration, receptions, breaks and those informal, yet effective, "meetings between meetings." In fact, most of the interior and upper floors of Monona Terrace are devoted to public space, including the mezzanine level with its two executive board roams, all with a gorgeous lake view. Monona Terrace is not only designed to meet the high-tech demands of today's convention, trade show and meeting planners, it is also designed for complete accessibility and civic enjoyment. And crowning this jewel is a 68,000 sq. ft. rooftop garden that celebrates the cityscape. Look out over Lake Monona, the downtown skyline and The Slate Capitol dome. You have found the backdrop you need for memorable and effective meetings.
