Wisconsin Lakes

We Speak for Lakes

WI Lakes

Lake & River Consultants and Firms

The Wisconsin Lakes & Rivers Convention typically provides an incredible opportunity for lake & river related businesses to connect with potential clients. In 2020, of course, the new coronavirus and the stay-at-home orders it necessitated prevented us from gathering in person. Wisconsin Lakes is happy to provide this list of some of the business that would have been there to talk to you in person. We thank each of these businesses, especially our lead sponsors, for participating in the Lakes Convention and look forward to all of us gathering in person again, March 24-26, 2021 in Stevens Point.

Thanks to our 2020 WI Lakes & Rivers Convention Lead Sponsors
