Visit Detroit is the only organization that promotes the metro Detroit regionally, nationally and internationally as a convention, business meeting and tourism destination.
To achieve this goal of soliciting and servicing the area’s second-largest industry, Visit Detroit works with the regional Detroit and Windsor area business community, civic organizations and local government offices in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
Visit Detroit is neither a branch of any government nor a charitable foundation. It is an independent, nonprofit economic development organization which receives its funding from several sources, including:
- A 2 percent assessment (not a tax) on all hotels and motels with 35 or more transient rooms in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties
- Membership dues from the corporate community, private sector, trade and service organizations
VISIT DETROIT MISSION
The mission of Visit Detroit is to market and sell the Detroit metropolitan region to business and leisure visitors in order to maximize economic impact.
In collaboration with our partners, stakeholders and customers, our purpose is to champion the continuous improvement of the region as a dynamic and memorable tourism destination.
