In ancient Greek Mythology, Mount Olympus was the home of the gods. Zeus, Hera, Apollo and the like ruled from on high, atop a mountain whose peak broke the clouds. While it might not reach the literal heights of Mount Olympus, the Olympia Resort more than manages to reach the figurative heights set by its predecessor. Here, the hospitable staff won’t just treat you like royalty, but like a god.
Nestled in the heart of fun-to-pronounce Oconomowoc, the Olympia Resort is the perfect place for couples, families, and large events. It serves as a highly useful midway point to the plethora of nearby cities, including Wisconsin Dells, Chicago, Green Bay, Madison and Milwaukee. However, the main draw is of course, the surrounding Wisconsin Lake Country, which offers visitors a vast selection of opportunities for recreation, shopping, dining, events and attractions.
While families and couples will undoubtedly fall in love with Olympia, perhaps the resort’s strongest asset is its renowned conference center. It ranks as the 7th largest meeting facility in the state of Wisconsin, offering more than 45,000 square feet of space for business meetings, conventions, trade shows, dog shows, weddings, retreats, reunions and more. Big group? No problem. Olympia Resort is proud to accommodate any sized event, from 12 to 1200 people. The friendly staff make setting up and planning for your meeting or event incredibly intuitive and simple.
It’s especially telling that much of Olympia’s business comes from positive word of mouth from former guests. Jill Fennimore, of the Wisconsin Nursery and Landscape Association, hosted an event at Olympia and couldn’t have been happier with how it went. “I especially am grateful for the attention (Olympia) have given to our special requests—both last-minute and planned! A special pepper-free meal—done! Move dessert to the Wisconsin Room—done! More coffee—done! Bigger space for lunch because we added on 35 attendees in 3 days—done! These requests and more, all taken care of with the utmost kindness and professionalism.”
Olympia also offers unparalleled variety for your event, boasting seven distinct venues that can accommodate all sizes. The Olympia Center is popular for dog shows, dance competitions, and trade shows, while Royale Cellar is outfitted with its own bar. The incredibly hospitable staff will make finding the perfect match a cinch. Just ask the Assistant Director of BBA Student Life at the University of Wisconsin Madison, Dani Barker: “I cannot say enough about how amazing the staff at Olympia is. Our retreat brings 60 students and 10 professionals together to help students learn how to grow and develop their leadership skills. We require a number of spaces with various setups and one of the things that we valued from the start of our partnership with Olympia is their willingness to be flexible with us and accommodate our many needs. This was most evident at our last session when we worked with the organization, Feed My Starving Children, to package over 30,000 meals for children facing hunger. The addition of this portion of our retreat was last minute, but the staff worked with us to make sure we could put on this amazing event. Overall, Olympia is a great partner for us and try as much as possible to make what we need happen.”
So for your next big company event, meeting, or retreat, you could certainly go to the old run-of-the-mill conference center or hotel, but with the information you have now, why would you? The typical conference center absolutely pales in comparison to the majesty of Olympia. Give them a call, and the incredible staff will make sure your event reaches new heights.
