9 January 2018


Eden Prairie, MN – Expanding its portfolio in the Midwest, Teneo Hospitality Group, the premier global firm representing 300+ independent and luxury branded hotels, resorts and destination management companies, has welcomed Wisconsin's Grand Geneva® Resort & Spa to its marketing services portfolio. Teneo's mission with Grand Geneva, which is owned and managed by Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, will be to increase group sales for the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Resort.

"We are excited to announce our partnership with Teneo Hospitality Group," said Brad Lyles, director of sales and marketing for Grand Geneva Resort & Spa. "We look forward to introducing Grand Geneva to Teneo's extensive network of meeting planners and realizing the synergies between our organizations."

Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is one of the largest resorts and conference centers in Wisconsin, set on 1,300 beautiful wooded acres. Located between Milwaukee and Chicago, the resort is a popular year-round leisure and conference destination. Shuttles to Grand Geneva Resort & Spa run from airports in both cities and visitors can enjoy a private executive airport on site.

Perfect for VIP guests and executive retreats, Grand Geneva's meeting facilities include 62,000 square feet of indoor and 15,000 outdoor space, including two ballrooms, two conference centers and 35 separate meeting rooms. The hotel can accommodate up to 1,500 attendees at a conference or special event. Technical services include Wi-Fi, video conferencing, cutting-edge audiovisual equipment and a full-time tech support staff.

The resort hosts 609 accommodations including deluxe guestrooms, suites, luxurious new villas and a lodge and waterpark. Grand Geneva Resort & Spa features three fine dining restaurants and its newest innovation, the exclusive Geneva Club. The Geneva Club offers guests breakfast each morning, snacks and beverages throughout the day, and hors d'oeuvres in the evening, as well as comfortable seating areas where guests can work or gather.

The award-winning Grand Geneva Resort & Spa sets the scene for championship golf tournaments with two spectacular 18-hole courses that are rated among Wisconsin's best. The Brute is one of the most challenging layouts in the Midwest. Enhanced with 68 bunkers and huge rolling greens, this par-72 course is immaculately maintained. The Highlands, a Scottish-style course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye, was renovated in 1996 by Bob Cupp. Services and facilities include lessons, a driving range, putting green and on-site golf shop.

A resort for all seasons, Grand Geneva offers an array of sports, recreational activities and teambuilding opportunities. In summer, guests can enjoy hiking, archery, golfing or horseback riding. In winter, they can take to the slopes at The Mountain Top, a three-chair/20-run ski and snowboard facility, and enjoy cross country skiing, ice skating and a sledding hill. The resort features its own fitness center and two swimming pools. There are indoor and outdoor tennis courts, basketball, volleyball courts and a 35-foot, nine-station climbing wall, as well as a waterpark that appeals to both young and old. One of the region's most comprehensive spas, WELL Spa® & Salon, provides facials, massages, aromatherapy and body treatments as well as hair styling services.

Committed to sustainable practices throughout the resort, Grand Geneva is certified by Travel Green Wisconsin and provides a number of green initiatives. "Increasingly, meeting planners see the value of independent hotels that offer flexibility, value and unique experiences, while maintaining highly professional, sustainable and dedicated conference services," said Teneo's President Mike Schugt. "Grand Geneva Resort & Spa provides all these elements and more. Teneo is proud to represent this exceptional resort that brings so much to Wisconsin tourism and the meetings industry."
