• Group gatherings with a twist
One of the utmost trends of the year has been creating more experiences for attendees. 2018 will see a continued drive, full-speed-ahead, to engage meeting and event goers with more hyper-local, one-of-a-kind experiences. From farm-to-table dining, right on the farm, to meet and greet animal experiences at a local zoo and so much more, Midwest Meetings® wants to help you find experiences you may not have heard of before to WOW attendees at your next meeting or event.
Take a look at this random sampling of destinations and experiences, picked by our Editor, in the state of Michigan.
Take your conference or teambuilding event to the water on Friends Good Will. This replica 1810 ship travels from the Michigan Maritime Museum in South Haven. Take a group Basic Sail Training course or relax and enjoy the splendor of a Michigan sunset aboard a tall ship.
Another boat experience lies at the bottom of Thunder Bay, in Alpena. The clear waters allow groups to explore the depths from aboard a glass-bottom boat. View shipwrecks from the 19th and early 20th century. When the tour is complete your attendees will enjoy learning more of the rich history of the Great Lakes’ shipping industry at the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center.
