Meet metro Detroit’s newest regional tourism ambassador: The D-Rover is a multipurpose van with custom graphics designed by a local artist. It’s unique, it’s fun and it’s the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau’s way of taking the tourism message on the road and directly to the visitor. The van will travel to events to get visitors and local residents excited about what there is to see and do in their own backyard. Staff in the D-Rover will distribute magazines, maps, giveaways and materials that highlight our member restaurants, attractions, hotels and special events.
We are always looking for great places to take the D-Rover. If you would like the D-Rover at your event, please contact Harriet Carter, director of bureau services, for more details.
