COVID-19 update – Please be aware that while the CDC guidelines are in place, our venues are at half capacity in order to provide a safe structure of social distancing.
The Kemper Center makes a great “get away" location for any type of business function. Free from the distractions of the workplace, your conference, seminar, or business meeting is bound to be more productive for its attendees. The Kemper Center is just far enough away yet still close to and easily accessible from Kenosha’s business parks and the I-94 corridor to make it the perfect setting for your gathering.
The Kemper Center’s variety of spaces are well suited for all styles of business meetings. Whether you are hosting a private meeting or one that is small to medium sized, rooms can be set up in any formation to accomodate your group. Classroom, Banquet, Boardroom, Theatre, and U-Shaped seating configurations are the most common, but our hospitality staff will work with you to arrange the rooms to best suit your needs.
All rooms feature wireless internet access. Other equipment such as whiteboards and easels are also available.
