A Destination of Inspiration
Convene at Wingspread Retreat & Executive Conference Center – where your group will be inspired by Wingspread, Frank Lloyd Wright’s soaring yet welcoming architectural treasure that was built in 1939 as a family home for the patriarch of S.C. Johnson & Son. Donated to The Johnson Foundation, Wingspread is now the centerpiece of 36 peaceful acres along Lake Michigan.
The Minute You Drive Through Our Gates, The Property Is Yours.
Our secluded and serene location provides a safe, inviting environment for the free and open exchange of ideas through civil discourse. Comfortable accommodations, nearly-exclusive usage of the campus and attentiveness to participants' every need minimizes distractions and maximizes engagement.
Wingspread is located just 35 minutes from Milwaukee and 90 minutes from Chicago.
We recognize an increasingly important aspect of the modern meeting is the ability to produce quality hybrid meetings, without concerns surrounding technological shortcomings and mishaps. Additionally, there is growing demand for hybrid meetings, where a portion of the participants are on site in a socially distanced meeting room and a portion are connecting virtually from around the country or world.
At Wingspread, we continue to design innovative meeting settings, invest in new technology and provide the training needed for our team to execute flawless virtual and hybrid meetings.
Your Success is our Passion.
"Thank you so much to you and the entire staff at Wingspread for making our retreat a huge success. Everyone was extremely helpful, the food was delicious (and plentiful!), and Wingspread itself is amazing!...
I don’t believe I’ve ever had so many folks come up to me during a retreat telling me how much they appreciate the location...having a place like Wingspread where folks could just ‘breathe’ and ‘center themselves’ along with all the quiet spots where they could privately walk and talk together was priceless.
Looking forward to planning many more conferences at Wingspread with you all in the future.”
– Judy, Meeting Planner
Natural. Organic. Intuitive.
Hosting your meeting at Wingspread opens up possibilities through a legacy of impacting the future, a tone of the optimistic exploration and discovery, and a rare perspective and clarity derived from the natural energy of untouched grounds and experiential programming. Approved by the International Association of Conference Centers, our secluded estate provides the geographical separation and physical boundary from the distractions that can cloud focused work and discussion. The grounds also provide natural and nonlinear paths for walk-and-talk, ponds and streams for pause and reflection, and organic inspiration from the boundless wildlife that surrounds.
