Now hear this! Un-rehearsed, un-coached thoughts about meeting in Metro Detroit you can share with your group.
From JIM ADDIS, National Exchange Club
“This [DMCVB] staff from top to bottom is the best in the country. We are a national organization meeting all over the U.S. We normally don’t see hotel staff or CVB staff this attentive. [This is] the reason why we keep coming back.”
From DARREN ING, Michigan Manufactured Housing, Recreational Vehicle Campground Association
“Detroit is rapidly changing for the better. Vast improvements are very attractive to potential clients looking to host meetings and conventions. It is exciting to see the changes and improvements in Detroit. It bodes well for the city and businesses that growth and revitalization are a top priority.”
From FALZARANO, US First
“[The DMCVB Services Department] organized a downtown tour that included not only seeing key points of interest, but providing information regarding safety, expansion, and all that the city has to offer. I received many positive comments of how this tour helped to change perceptions of Detroit.”
From JENNIFER GECKLER, Points of Light
“The city is beautiful and full of pride. Our attendees loved the tours that Detroit Experience Factory provided.”
From SAM CANNING, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia

From BARB DEMEYERE, Tour Coordinator, Brightspark Travel
“Had the privilege of touring some of the sights of Detroit on a FAM a few years ago. How easily we forget how beautiful and interesting Detroit can be! We have so many fantastic museums in Michigan, but the one that has touched me the most is the Motown Museum. What an incredible place! You can almost “feel” the history and music emanating from its walls. I jump at every opportunity I get to visit it again and again, plus recommend it to everyone I know. Truly one of my favorite places!”
“Detroit is a great city. The hospitality that was shown to us while we visited for the U.S. Women’s Bowling National Tournament was extraordinary. The artwork on all the bowling pins and balls throughout the area was spectacular. We took our picture with the three pins and ball in front of the Target store and should be located at the website that was featuring those pictures. Though we had ten (10) people that originally came with us to the tournament, only three (3) of us were able to extend our time a few days to take in some Detroit sights. We visited the Ford Museum, loved the living roof. We took in a Detroit Tigers game, which they won! Go Tigers! We visited the Greektown Casino (no win there) and enjoyed some Greek food at Pegasus. Yummmm! The people everywhere we went were kind and courteous.”
