May 11+12

Join hundreds of travel professionals for a unique bonding experience with buyers, agents, executives and, often, your clients and partners. Deepen existing relationships and build new ones!

In honor of National Travel & Tourism Week, we will go big for Tourism Cares for Detroit: it’ll be our largest project and also feature our annual results, sessions for travel giving and volunteering professionals, and more. Come one day early to share, learn and give back.

Volunteers will get to know The Motor City through receptions and fun add-ons and will leave their mark through a hands-on service projects throughout the city all-day Friday.

PLEASE NOTE: Because our events are limited in capacity, we are asking companies to limit their participants to 5 volunteers at this time. Interested in more spots? Ask us about sponsorship.
