The Interview

Why are companies drawn to your space?

Companies are definitely drawn to our space by the lakefront, having this view and outdoor options. The uniqueness of the aquarium for the cocktail hour is huge, as well. The set up throughout the exhibit space of the museum provides such a memorable experience for the guests! It’s just different than anywhere else.

Fab feature companies might not know about?

Our team! (Laughing) Years of experience of planning events.

But seriously, Discovery World has been a staple on the lake for over 10 years now, but most people are still not exposed to the space in general. When we do tours for people, they are often surprised by unique features of our building. A door opens into a new room and everyone’s jaw is dropping.

We are with you through it all.

Do you have any special packages?

We like to build custom packages for each event. Everything is a la carte because it helps to make each event is so personal to each client. We pride ourselves on our ability to make each experience unique to everyone. We don’t like events to all look the same. You can make so many modifications to really fit the plan to your vision, your budget and your company’s personality. So every event is different!

What types of corporate events do you host?

We do a lot of holiday parties, summer picnics, galas, meetings, luncheons, company anniversaries and non-profit fundraising events. There are so many non-profit opportunities at our spaces and it’s one aspect of our work we are very proud of. We give back 10 to 15% of food and beverages that are purchased by a non-profit and we cut a check directly back to the organization.
