Detroit, Michigan: find resounding success in the new Detroit.

The city that put America on wheels and gave birth to the Motown Sound is recreating itself. Downtown Detroit is booming with new stadiums, skyscrapers, public spaces, and redevelopment. Billions of dollars have been committed to a variety of projects--which is great news for citizens and the local economy.

It's great news for meeting planners, too. Detroit Metropolitan Airport is already home to the sparkling new Northwest World Gateway Terminal, and all of Southeast Michigan is busy building new guest amenities to accommodate upcoming major events such as the 2004 Ryder Cup and the 2006 Super Bowl.

Detroit has first-class meeting facilities for groups of any size, from meeting rooms at the newly built Detroit Hilton Garden Inn to 2.4 million square feet of meeting and exhibit space at Cobo Hall. The Detroit Metro area boasts more than 35,000 competitively priced hotel rooms.

When busy meeting attendees want to take a break from the work at hand, Detroit has entertainment to please nearly any taste. Our new football stadium, Ford Field, and new baseball stadium, Comerica Park, are two of the country's most spectacular sports facilities. From professional sports to a renowned symphony, five-star dining to Vegas-style casinos, touring Broadway shows to the amazing new Ford Rouge Factory Tour where you can see the workings of one of the world's most modern auto plants, daytime fun and nighttime excitement are plentiful.

Let the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau help make your next meeting a resounding success. We offer a turnkey experience, from bid completion and event presentations to welcome services and registration. Award-winning new facilities and new services have made the Detroit the newest star on the meeting and convention horizon.
