Milwaukee is home to Coakley Brothers who specialize in residential and commercial moving since 1888. Their Water Tower Building is located in the heart of Walker's Point neighborhood. I discovered another hidden gem within their office building which is unique (rentable) meeting space. The office has two wings of meeting space on opposite sides of the building. A training room that holds up to 100 people theater style and a conference room that accommodates 16 people. They also have a showroom that can be used for reception style events and generous outdoor space complete with a gas fire pit, café lighting and games. The space has cream city brick walls, beautiful wooden floors, an abundance of windows and garage doors that allow attendees outside access during breaks. You can visit their website to obtain more information about booking this unique space.

Dm-Connection & Events was interviewed by a freelance journalist who was writing an article about unusual meeting venues. Milwaukee was selected and they wrote about a recent event we did for a client at The Garden. Here an excerpt from the article: “Milwaukee is a very affordable and accessible destination and is centrally located within a day’s drive of 1/3 of the U.S. population,” Gleesing says. “Milwaukee provides great value for your meeting dollar with hotel, food and beverage, and top-notch entertainment options, for attendees.
“The venue was chosen because my client wanted a unique space for a reception with the option to take attendees to a restaurant close by. This venue and restaurant are owned by the same group, so it worked out well for the private event. The space has a floor-to-ceiling sculpture and a lighting system that will turn the sculpture into any color for the event. In this case, my client wanted a gold tone look to complement the decor we selected for the evening reception.”
Once you choose a venue, Gleesing advises planners to work with local experts who know the city, including a preferred catering vendor. “They know the venue well and can be a great resource for your event,” she says.
