Conference Kick-Off Luncheon

Celebrate the grand opening of the Expo Hall at this energizing event. Lunch will be provided for all Conference registrants – no need for separate registration.

Sponsored by: Habush, Habush & Rottier, S.C. and FindLaw.


Attendee Reception

On Thursday evening, unwind from a busy day and start making new connections while enjoying beer, wine, soda, hors d'oeuvres, and a cash bar from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m., compliments of WILMIC and West Bend Mutual Insurance Company.


Choose Your Own Adventure

Offsite, onsite, with colleagues, with your friends and family, or on your own – YOU choose!

This year we developed two options for you to choose from on Thursday evening after the reception – one is more for casual socializing with friends and colleagues at local restaurants (Dine-Arounds). OR y​ou can take part in our family fun night, which features FREE reserved bowling, discounted Tom Foolery tickets, light snacks and refreshments for solo small firm attendees and their families. OR, you can go your own way – you choose.

Dine-Arounds

Let us take care of your Thursday night dinner reservations by signing up for a dine-around. Each dine-around will be hosted by a WSSFC speaker or planning committee member and will take place at one of many top-notch restaurants in Wisconsin Dells. Enjoy stimulating conversation over a delicious meal while making new friends.

Signing up is easy. Simply stop by the Solo/Small Firm & General Practice Section booth in the Legal Expo to choose your preferred dine-around. Stop by early, though. Space is limited and last year’s dine arounds filled up quickly!

Attendees are responsible for their own dinner bill. Spouses or significant others are welcome, but please plan to leave the kids at the hotel.
