Our wedding reception went so smoothly! Everyone we worked with was very accommodating to make what we wanted happen. They were very flexible to meet up if I was in town and responded to emails in a timely manner. I’ve already recommended the venue to others. We had the best day ever!

American Milking Shorthorn Convention 2018
Dear Laurie and Beth, Just a quick note to thank you again for the wonderful service and assistance with the NARFE State Convention held at your impressive facility earlier this week. It was great working with you, and the service you and your incredible staff provided to all of us was so very much appreciated. Much of the success of the Convention is due to all of you. Thank you seems so inadequate, but Thank You So Very Much! Sincerely, ri.
YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!! I could not have been handed a better group of people of which to execute this weekend’s COF convention. I plan and organize many fundraisers and fraternal events, but a convention I had no prior experience. While I was not involved in the early planning of the convention, I feel as though I now have a very clear picture of the whole event and am ready for the next one. I have learned a lot and believe wholeheartedly next time will be even better. I had an amazing time and loved the task at hand. You truly exemplify your motto “If something is possible, it will be done” I will definitely recommend the Willmar Convention Center through networking opportunities.

We just wanted to say thank you to Laurie, Monte and the entire event team from TPI for a wonderful event Oct 6! Our guests raved about the food and loved the use of Gallery 7 for cocktail/after glow times. We appreciated all of the help from the prep/set up team that day and the attention to detail from the butlers/servers this year—they helped us create a wonderful guest experience and we are grateful.

I want to thank Laurie Varpness for being a pleasure to work with and for helping to set up a successful venue for our Fall League Meetings. She was great to work with and would highly recommend the Willmar Conference Center as a result. In addition, I’d like to recognize Angela, the Banquet manager and all of the catering and room setup staff. The food was wonderful and they took care of all of our needs in a timely and professional manner.

WCC hosted our Red Carpet Event on December 29, 2017. The event was wonderful and everything went so smoothly. I want to extend a special thank you to Laurie Varpness for all of her help during the planning process. I would also like to give kudos to Angela Boersma and Tyler Kase for all of their help on the day of the event. Monty and staff did an amazing job on the food and everyone raved about the amazing Brisket. The entire staff went out of their way to help care for us and we couldn’t have been more pleased at the end of the event. Thank you!
