Dubuque’s meeting market sees nearly 70,000 meeting delegates to the area each year. “This grant will help us increase our presence to the Chicago area by attending tradeshows that put Dubuque’s meeting amenities in front of planners through one-on-one appointments,” shared Julie Kronlage, Vice President of Sales.

Dubuque County’s travel industry continues to be an important economic driver, generating $338 million in travel related expenditures, 2,980 jobs and $55.8 million in payroll in 2016, according to a report by the U.S. Travel Association.
