“Waterloo has some great venues for events. We held our annual meeting reception at the Regional Museum. The venue was great, a local caterer put on a wonderful spread, the decorator transformed the space to suit our request and the staff were terrific to work with.”

“Waterloo offers unique experiences you won’t find anywhere else. Something for everyone. Fanstastic venues and activities coupled with great customer services is why we love to bring our clients to Waterloo. Every venue we have worked with has gone above and beyond to ensure we have the best experience possible. The Waterloo Tourism sales team knows this area like the back of their hand and are always a phone call or email away with great knowledge and information to help make an informed decision when we can’t actually come see a place beforehand. It’s a great central location for travelers coming from various areas to meet up.”
