Rent your space at the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel and get so much more than a place to meet. 

The Kimpton Journeyman, located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward district, has 158 guest rooms, a rooftop bar and craftsman details for groups to enjoy. The crowning finish is the selection of team-building offerings the hotel helps coordinate. Since the Third Ward is within walking distance of so many outstanding attractions, the hotel has compiled activities building off local specialties like the Milwaukee Public Market. One popular team-building activity sends teams to the market with instructions to prepare a onecourse meal, giving participants 20 minutes to shop and 40 minutes to create a dish to share. 

“Other popular nonfood activities include building bird houses with a variety of obscure materials; scavenger hunts that take teams through the Historic Third Ward neighborhoods; and decorating piñatas followed by a Mexican dinner, complete with a mariachi band,” says Mary Kruse, director of sales and marketing at the hotel.  

Andrea Hahn, general manager of Chicago’s new MB Ice Arena, knows her way around an ice rink.

 

Held at the United Center Sept. 21-23, 2018, the Laver Cup—a men’s tennis tournament pitting six top European players against six of their counterparts—marked the first time this major event has been held in the United States. Total event attendance was more than 93,000 people, with fans from around the world traveling to Chicago for an unforgettable experience with the game’s best players. “The Laver Cup was a huge win for Chicago,” says Kara Bachman, executive director of the Chicago Sports Commission.

 

Already an iconic property in Chicago’s bustling commercial district, the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile is now offering guests a new way to see the city this summer.
