Dedicated to Producing Positive Results
The Gateway to Milwaukee supports a variety of programs to improve, influence, and promote The Gateway district. As a well-established organization, our members have already crafted a mission and a vision for the future. Now, The Gateway to Milwaukee works diligently to complete plans that have been set in motion.
The Gateway created WinWin Milwaukee to encourage travelers to stay at Gateway hotels. Guests who book a hotel through WinWin can choose a package of deals to help them experience Milwaukee. With the support of many local merchants, the program is a WinWin for tourism!
When people arrive in Milwaukee by plane, Amtrak, or highway, The Gateway district must offer a welcoming first impression. The Gateway to Milwaukee maintains an attractive and inviting environment through median plantings, landscaping projects, streetlight banners, and ongoing maintenance.
The Gateway to Milwaukee promotes redevelopment and new construction projects in our district to indirectly impact economic development. We plan to create a desirable business district where the private sector may locate, invest, and thrive.
To maintain a safe, walkable Gateway district, particularly near hotels and restaurants, The Gateway to Milwaukee sponsors a Security Patrol, in addition to working with Milwaukee Police Department’s District 6 Hotel Squad.
The Gateway to Milwaukee composes newsletters, coordinates events, and maintains a website to continually promote the transportation assets, hotels, and member businesses within The Gateway district.
Through a joint effort with Visit Milwaukee, The Gateway to Milwaukee has received a grant from the State of Wisconsin to conduct research on visitors to the Milwaukee area. Results of the study will be used to transform The Gateway district!
