The Wisconsin Center District is a convention, meeting, and event space in Milwaukee that has three diverse facility types including an exhibit hall, a sports arena, and a theatre. In order to remain competitive within their industry, the WCD looked into ways that technology could help them differentiate themselves from other venues.



  • A strong network infrastructure that will enable the venue to differentiate itself from competitors
  • A connection that reaches throughout the three unique venues within the WCD
  • The ability to track clients as they move throughout the building to provide stronger insights to enhance all visitor’s experiences
"We will continue to use Extreme products because I think they innovate very well, and they are always coming out with the newest technologies. We really enjoy the collaboration we have with Extreme. Their support has been top-notch for us and we work very well with them. That really makes our job easier when we are trying to support our clients and guests."
