Destination Michigan worked with me to coordinate site visits, transportation, and venue negotiations for our annual meeting. With their help, representatives from 35 companies across the U.S. came to Michigan and had an outstanding experience. We made a positive impression and were proud to show off Michigan thanks to the folks at Destiantion Michigan.

Our group participated in the salsa and margarita making team building exercise. The group had a lot of laughs and it was great fun to see some folks let their hair down. Additionally, the salsa the different teams made actually turned out quite delicious. We ended our day with this activity, and everyone loved it.
Michele Fields, The Auto Club Group
Destination Michigan totally renewed our corporation and made its annual meeting a resounding success. Our organization went from a state-wide society with minimal involvement and mediocre production to a nationally known organization that thrives of its revenue and member participation, all thanks to the wonderful people at Destination Michigan. Their staff are knowledgeable, cooperative, and the most dedicated team I have ever worked with! They have become a permanent presence in our planning process.

While I’ve been to Northern Michigan several times, the Destination Michigan staff remains very aware of the ever-changing and increasing entertainment opportunities. They had a great experience lined up for my group and Bob Hertel was very accommodating when our meeting caused a wrinkle in the itinerary. The entire group still had a great time and was able to experience places & things they might not have on our own. Additionally, I thank and commend Bob, as he even took a call from me requesting some information about a local restaurant in Traverse City and reached out to the restaurant to make a contact for a better table. That level of customer service and working “outside of the contract” speaks highly to the dedication, commitment and professionalism. Thanks again for all of your assistance and I’ll be sure to call you should we find ourselves back in Northern Country!

Big thanks from our company to the entire Destination Michigan crew. Our international group of business people were very impressed by the level of organization, professionalism and effectiveness that MUN gave to our activity. We had a great time…it was a perfect event for us and for some colleagues to get a true taste of NW Michigan. Any group, club, or business that is looking for a team-building event in NW Michigan, can count on MUN to offer a creative activity that can enhance an organization's camaraderie and effectiveness as a team. I highly recommend DM's services!

Destination Michigan has been such a valuable resource for my event planning. They provide not only a wide variety of recommendations for just the right location they also provide so many additional services to make sure your event is worry free. I will look forward to continuing my partnership with them for my events. I would recommend them to any individual who wants to plan a special event but is just too busy to coordinate all of the details.

Working with the Destination Michiagan team is always a pleasure. The staff is very professional and on top of the details to make the site selection process for our association events simple. The preparation and on-site organization of our trade show were fantastic. Our exhibitors gave high praises to Bob Hertel for the great job on our expo.
Jodie Cady, Michigan Association of Realtors, President of the Michigan Chapter of Meeting Professionals International
Working with Destinatoin Michigan allowed me to continue other duties of my job while they were finding and scheduling site visits that matched the criteria I needed. This is much more fun doing it this way. You were doing all the telephone tag and I just received the results.
