Visit Milwaukee Hosts "unFAM"

Meeting planners from across the country enjoyed out-of-the-ordinary experiences during VISIT Milwaukee’s October “unFAM.” Highlights included a city-wide scavenger hunt with stops at Milwaukee’s major attractions and off-site meeting venues and a costume party at Spin Milwaukee, a unique 16,500-sq. ft. table-tennis social club. VISIT Milwaukee staff pictured with the group include Paul Upchurch, president and CEO, Brent Foerster, vice president of sales and marketing (fireman and cowboy, back row) and Mia Nardi, director of convention sales (angel, front row).

"The UnFAM was wonderful. You have really raised the bar for CVBs and DMCs everywhere, you can show others how it’s done,” said S. Tyrone Barksdale, assistant to the Provost/Special Projects Analyst, Office of the Provost and Chief Academic Officer, Howard University.
