What is the Detroit Experiences Program?
The program is designed to assist partners in creating unique and immersive package experiences for all types of travelers. Completed packages will appear here and be included in our correlating marketing efforts.

How do I participate?
Partners can learn the ins and outs of the complete packaging process by attending educational workshops. The workshop series is designed to equip your business with the strategies and tools to combine your offerings with other DMCVB partners to create dynamic packages into dynamic experience packages.
