Green Bay’s Resch Expo is Open for Business
11 Mar, 2021
The $93 million Resch Expo is open for business. Resch Expo’s innovative multi-purpose design boasts 125,000 square feet of floor space, with another 135,000 square feet of pre-function, meeting, networking and outdoor plaza space. The facility replaces an aging arena and flat show building previously on the same footprint.
The abundance of glass windows creates a sense of transparency and access, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor and welcoming the distinctive Wisconsin landscape in. A sweeping roofline creates three individual elevations, forming a grand entrance at the front of the building.
Situated next to historic Lambeau Field the facility is perfectly placed in a walkable entertainment district. Resch Expo offers a free flow design from its first-floor pre-function space directly into the lobby of the 10,000 seat Resch Center. Resch Center offers the region’s premier concert/large conference stage set up. Additionally, it hosts sports tournaments like basketball, volleyball and hockey. Having the ability to combine the two venues is a huge advantage for large events looking for a Midwestern venue. There isn’t another space like it in the state of Wisconsin.
The building is a flexible, allowing for a variety of events. The exhibit hall can be divided into a three, two or one hall design, and can accommodate trade and industry shows with 600 – 10’ x 10’ booths. A continuous show floor with no columns can host sports events like wrestling, volleyball, billiards, gymnastics, cheerleading and cornhole.
On the second level, the six breakout suites can be used for educational seminars, event storage or a show headquarters. Equipped with its own state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, plated, buffet and quick food service is available. An upstairs cocktail bar accommodates private parties. Attendees can stroll the wrap-around outdoor deck on the second level.
There are several event spaces on the building’s outdoor plaza, with amazing views of historic Lambeau Field. Indoor/outdoor networking events and receptions have all been thoughtfully planned for the space. Planners interested in offering something a little different could have an early morning yoga session on the turf, or food trucks adjacent to the beer garden. The spaces are well lit and can be tented.
