The votes are in; here are the winners as decided by the readers of Michigan Meetings + Events.

What does it mean to be the best? In Michigan, the bar keeps moving north. As our state continues to rebuild and flourish, new venues come on line, new restaurants open their doors and what it takes to truly stand out continues to expand.

So it’s inspiring to see so many long-standing vendors and venues continue to earn our readers’ loyalty. Newcomers are welcome and often impress, but we clearly have many industry players that built their operations to last.



THE WINNER IS: Fox Theatre
Detroit | 313.471.3333

» The Henry Ford
» Detroit Athletic Club


These seven industry leaders and up-and-coming professionals are the real deal.
