Julie works with many different clients from weddings and meetings to large conferences and has done so for 13 years at this hotel. She describes herself as balanced, positive, and innovative: “I never want to stop learning and I continue to look for ways to improve. I enjoy going to conferences and watching YouTube videos so I can bring back new ideas and experiences to the hotel.” Julie enjoys working with front-line staff to review what customers are asking for and what they are expecting. It could be as easy as adding another wine selection to our banquet bars or setting a room up a specific way to flow better for our guests. She loves so many aspects of her role, but her favorite is crying during the father of the bride speeches at weddings: “We work so closely with our brides for several months that I truly feel I’m part of their family.” Julie likes to think of her life and her work as a puzzle and puts the pieces together: “I have three daughters that have all grown up as the daughter of an event planner. They all know how to alphabetize place cards, set tables, create centerpieces, and they know the difference between Halal, Gluten-free, and Kosher. It’s been rewarding to watch them be Social Chairs of their sororities and plan their Spring Formals knowing that they enjoyed and learned a lot about life, cultures, and food while growing up a hospitality kid.”

The Concourse Hotel & Governor's Club is a fantastic location for your wedding reception! All my bride's love all the unique locations within this hotel for portraits and it's so close to the Capital and State Street for an easy walk!
I've been working quite a bit with them and I got to say that I love their food!
We always love the opportunity to work with the staff at The Madison Concourse Hotel. The coordinators have been nothing short of accommodating each and every time we are out there. The space itself is great for a wedding reception...large enough to fit everything (photo booth, DJ, bar, dance floor) in the same room with plenty of space to walk around and lounge about...although we'd rather have you dancing! It's also a short hop, skip, and a jump to State Street and a multitude of bars to hit up after the official celebration has come to a close. Looking for a nice downtown Madison venue? Check these guys out!
