While Simpleview Summit 2024 is a long way from our Tucson headquarters, the Simpleview staff has a lot of connections to the Dairy State. As you plan your travels to Wisconsin, we are excited to provide suggestions for some of the best things to see and do if you are arriving early, looking for ideas for the open night on Tuesday, or departing late.

Whether they grew up in Wisconsin, attended college there, or spent memorable summers at their grandma's, we captured our team’s unique perspective on what makes Wisconsin a special place.
