Downtown Summit

Traditionally gathering Wisconsin downtown, BID, chamber, and main street managers, as well as city planners and government officials every fall, the Downtown Summit is the largest annual event for Wisconsin Downtown Action Council members.  It offers attendees the opportunity to learn from their peers and share information and ideas through a combination of large group training, round-table discussions, city tours and open network sessions. Since the Downtown Summit location has moved to different cities around the state over the years, participants have been exposed to a variety of city plans, architecture,  and placemaking ideas. 

Jennifer Stephany, Executive Director of Downtown Appleton and a past WDAC president highly recommends attending. “The summit is an outstanding opportunity to exchange ideas, learn new strategies and expand your network. It is always an inspiring experience.”

Due to COVID, the fall 2020 Summit was cancelled.  The WDAC board has begun the planning process for the 2021 conference.  More details will be communicated soon.
