Bring it Home
Introduce Fond du Lac to your association, sporting event, fraternal group, or meeting planner and we’ll introduce you to our group booking incentives program!
Ask us about our meeting incentive programs and learn more about how we can work together to Bring It Home to Fond du Lac! Contact the Fond du Lac Area Convention & Visitors Bureau at 923-3010, ext. 104.
The Bring it Home! Referral Program encourages Fond du Lac community to help secure meeting and events for our hometown and fill our meeting and event space and hotel rooms.
Let’s collaborate together! Show your passion for the Fond du Lac community, help drive the economic development back home and show visitors this is a great place to work, play and live!
WHAT IS A BRING IT HOME REFERRAL?
Bring It Home! encourages locals to help secure meetings and events for our hometown. Fond du Lac is a convenient and affordable meeting destination, centrally located within an hour of the over 70% of Wisconsin’s major populations which draws high attendance for group events.
Add a new Conference Center plus a variety of outstanding meeting facilities and recreational options in this community and your referrals are sure to make a big splash!
HOW MEETINGS IMPACT FOND DU LAC.
Referrals from our local stakeholders are meaningful because they are proud of our resources and believe in this vibrant community and want to showcase it to others. When groups visit Fond du Lac, the hotel occupancy tax (paid only by hotel guests) and sales tax revenues contribute to Fond du Lac’s tax base and the Convention & Visitors Bureau receives a portion of those funds to continue marketing this growing destination. Visitors also support local businesses during their stay in Fond du Lac which encourages more economic development and more jobs!
WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP?
- Identify Contacts & Groups.
Do you know anyone who plans meetings, special events, family reunions or weddings? Does your organization attend annual meetings or retreats around the state? Let us find out the details and do the homework about the meeting or event. All you need to do is point us in the right direction.
- Send Referrals.
Email Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name, phone number and email for the proposed group or special event that you would like to see hosted in Fond du Lac. Also include the name of the referred group, association or organization, the type of meeting or event (conference, retreat, board meeting, wedding, reunion, sporting event) plus your name, phone number and email.

When you Bring It Home! to Fond du Lac, the Fond du Lac Visitors Bureau will recognize you and your organization with a special thank you for your support and participation. For events with group room nights, you may also qualify for some VIP thank you incentives!
