Detroit, MI | Meeting Planning Overview

Detroit is America’s great comeback city. With a newly energized downtown and a $279-million dollar renovation to Cobo Center, one of the largest convention centers in the nation, the city is a total-package destination. Offering thousands of square feet of meeting space, as well as the Grand Riverview Ballroom and three-story glass atrium with views of the Riverwalk, Cobo Center is an unforgettable venue. It’s supported by over 36,000 hotel rooms throughout the region, including 5,000 downtown, and an award-winning international airport. Recently, The Washington Post and Zagat restaurant guide took notice of Detroit, announcing that the city is “in the midst of a culinary transformation,” and that Detroit is third on the list of the nation’s hottest up-and-coming food cities.
