Special D Events

Welcome to the D!

With new high-tech startups, creative incubators, event venues, world-class hotels, edgy restaurants and a light rail transportation system, Detroit is having a moment. In addition to the city’s cool factor, Detroit has the infrastructure to support large events.

  • Detroit is ahead of the curve. National Geographic named Detroit one of six unexpected cities for the food lover. And Lonely Planet, the world’s largest travel guide book publisher, named Detroit one of the top 10 global cities to visit in 2018 because of its new attractions, such as distilleries and galleries.
  • Travel service On Call International named Detroit the best U.S. city for business travel because of its on-time flights, cost of lodging and low traffic congestion levels.
  • Detroit Metropolitan Airport is one of the world’s leading air transportation hubs. The airport is just a 90-minute (or less) flight away from 60 percent of the United States.
  • Detroit’s convention center meets APEX/ASTM Sustainable Meeting Standards.

With the rapid pace of change in Detroit, it’s important to work with event managers who spend every day working with the city and local supplier partners. Click here to learn more about all the ways we can help!
