Meetings

Just 90 minutes north of Detroit, you'll find a little gem of a meeting place.  It's the only place in the world where you can immerse your group in the traditions of an authentic Bavarian town, whisk away your attendees for an after-conference dinner sail on the bay of Lake Huron, and introduce them to the roaring hospitality that can only come from a region so close-knit and unique, you'll leave feeling like you went on both a business trip and a vacation.  That's because we offer our meeting planners and attendees the variety and capacity of a bustling city, all while treating them with the hospitality and attentiveness we'd give to our own family and friends.

You'll find this same spirit of service not only in our hotel meeting venues, but also in our fresh, fun (and sometimes totally-off-the-wall) alternative meeting venues.

Did we mention that our Meetings & Conventions Manager, Sonja, REALLY loves her job?  Combine that with her 22 years of experience in the hospitality industry, and we think you've got a pretty powerful planning partner on your side.

Sonja (and our whole Great Lakes Bay Family) are here to help you with every piece of the planning puzzle, including:

  • RFP / Bidding Process Support
  • Familiarization Tours
  • Site selection coordination
  • Unique, custom group activities and itineraries
  • Transportation options
