GREEN BAY, WI – The $93 million Resch Expo is open for business in Green Bay, Wi.
Resch Expo’s 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.
“We are extremely excited to have this building open. Planners are loving all the amenities Resch Expo has to offer. This is a first-class venue,” says Brad Toll, Greater Green Bay CVB president. “Its location is surrounded by hotels, dining, and attractions. With it being just minutes from the airport, it’s a planner’s dream.”
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 for basketball, volleyball, and hockey. Having the ability to combine the two venues is a huge advantage for large events looking for a Midwestern venue.
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 ft x 10’ ft 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, while attendees can stroll the wrap-around outdoor deck on the second level.
There are several event spaces on the building’s outdoor plaza, with views of historic Lambeau Field.
