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
