Let the dedicated sales, A/V, food and beverage team take care of all your group’s needs, so that you can focus on the bottom line – a productive, memorable event on the water. Just steps from downtown Madison, the square and UW-Madison’s world-class campus, your group can get everything done on property and venture out easily on foot, by boat, or with our convenient transportation options. We’ve got it all here on the shores of Lake Mendota.
The Grand Ballroom and Nolen Gallery combine beautifully to allow your group some showcase space, as well as access to the outdoor Plaza. The Edgewater also offers several additional venues for breakout sessions and retreats, plus five distinct restaurants for any post-conference dinners, pre-meeting coffees and end-of-the-week happy hours. Lake Mendota’s lapping waves and the downtown hustle and bustle meet here to give your guests a true Madison experience, showcasing all that this city has to offer locals and visitors alike.
