With state of the art facilities featuring 2,000 to 86,000 square feet of space, this walkable and sustainable community welcomes meetings and conventions of 3 to 3,000 to gather along the Mississippi River any time of the year.
As an event planner during COVID-19, there are many additional factors and considerations to contend with in executing an event. Working with Travel Dubuque and the Hotel Julien Dubuque put our minds at ease. Their staff was up to date with the current guidelines, and ensured our event maintained its character and feel, while ensuring our safety to the extent possible. The team was responsive to our needs, with the conference attendees felt relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the conference.
