Championing for its City as a Leading Convention, Business, and Tourism Destination

By Elisha Neubauer

Detroit is a Mecca of food and fun, and the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau wants to ensure tourists and residents alike enjoy every minute of it. Whether they are blogging about local activities, delivering copies of Visit Detroit Magazine, or mingling out in the community, the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau is working hard to promote their beloved city.

"To get the word out about the exciting happenings in Detroit, the DMCVB produces 400,000 copies of Visit Detroit magazine (200,000 twice a year), maintains its website and the Visit Detroit blog," details Deanna Majchrzak, Manager of Media Relations for the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau. "This spring the DMCVB will launch the mobile visitor's center, a vehicle designed to travel throughout the region to promote the Detroit destination." The mission of the Bureau is simple: to market and sell the Detroit metropolitan region to business and leisure visitors in order to maximize economic impact.

To do this, "The DMCVB actively engages in ongoing marketing and public relations efforts, including advertising, digital marketing and media familiarization tours," explains Majchrzak.

The activities in Detroit are endless- offering something for everyone, according to the Bureau. Cars, gaming, food, music, sports...you name it. "From historic museum adventures at The Henry Ford, to outdoor exploring on the island sanctuary of Belle Isle, and even nights out on the town at one of our three casinos, Detroit has it all," Majchrzak says. "Fueled by The D's economic turnaround, the city is humming with shopping, cultural attractions, championship sports and a variety of entertainment options."

These options are as varied as the diverse population. You can check out the Detroit Institute of Arts, one of the largest collections in the country; visit the 2,400 animals currently residing within the Detroit Zoo; spend an afternoon browsing the Henry Ford Museum; walk through Greenfield Village, an outdoor museum containing over eighty-three historic structures; or jam out at the Motown Museum. All this and more is readily available to the general public of the city of Detroit.

Of course, while these attractions are fabulous, there is one other feature of Detroit that has been garnering attention from the media. "The Washington Post and Zagat announced the city is 'in the midst of a culinary transformation,' and named Detroit third on the list of the nation's hottest up-and-coming food cities," states Majchrzak proudly.

"Nearly one hundred new restaurants, breweries, distilleries and coffee shops have opened in the last three years." To date, more than $11 Billion has been funneled into development projects, leading to the city being named as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Travel in 2016 by Travel + Leisure.
