KI Convention Center

"Creating excellence is what we are all about!" - Des Hague, Co-Founder of Aegis Enterprises and Partner of WC&A.

Des Hague, Co-Founder of Aegis Enterprises and Partner of WC&A and William Caruso, Founding Partner of WC&A, are pleased to announce the completion of WC&A Hospitality Design Team's work at the renovated KI Convention Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The recent grand opening celebrated the $24 million dollar renovation which nearly doubled the size of the existing building.

The expansion added 34,233 square feet to the center’s existing 45,290 square feet of exhibit halls, meeting rooms and smaller group spaces. The main thrust of the expansion was construction of the 25,000-square-foot George Kress Grand Ballroom which can sit more than 3,000 people, but it also includes three smaller, 1,400- to 2,000-square-foot meeting rooms with views of the Fox River.

"Creating excellence is what we are all about," stated Hague. "World-class hospitality design depends on collaboration and teamwork between all parties involved in the planning and design process."
