Grand Rapids, Michigan delivers a meeting experience like no other. Awesome art, incredible food and world-class beer made Grand Rapids #20 on the New York Times list of 52 Places to Go Worldwide in 2016. Both art and beer are in abundant supply in the city’s safe, clean downtown, where 150+ restaurants, breweries, nightclubs, shops and museums are located within a five-minute walk of 1,688 hotel rooms and a skywalk-connected convention center. Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, one of the world’s 100 most-visited art museums, is just a 10-minute drive away, along with three huge shopping malls, a classic urban zoo and a wide range of outdoor recreation options. Foodie-friendly restaurants and attractions – including the state-of-the-art Downtown Market – make ample use of the family farms that surround the city. An “ale trail” of 40+ craft breweries demonstrates why Grand Rapids is the reigning Beer City USA titleholder. And anywhere you go, you’re just a short drive from the wonders of Lake Michigan’s Gold Coast – miles of sugar-sand beaches along crystal-clear waters. All of this, plus such meeting amenities as a top-five world airport and trademarked support services, make Grand Rapids a perfect site for your next event!
