Meet metro Detroit’s regional tourism ambassador, The D-Rover! This multipurpose van with custom graphics designed by local Detroit artist, Ndubisi Okoye. This is our unique and fun approach to grassroots tourism, putting the information about our metro area directly into visitors and our community’s hands. The van will appear at local events, tournaments, trade shows and conferences to get visitors and local residents excited about what there is to see and do our beloved tri-county region. In addition, we have taken steps to deliver a more sustainable experience and reducing our carbon footprint wherever the D-Rover makes appearances. Our expert staff will provide access to digital maps, content that highlight our member restaurants, attractions, hotels and special events, and more.
The D-Rover loves to go on road trips and always looking for great places to visit. If you would like the D-Rover at your event, please contact Harriet Carter, Vice President, Customer/Partner Services, for more details.
