More good news for meetings and events continues to pour out of the Gerald R. Ford International (GFIA) Airport.
The airport reported an almost 6 percent increase in passengers—2,811,622 total in 2017—flying and in out of the Grand Rapids facility. That record established the best year in the airport’s 54-year history, and marked the fifth straight year of record-setting growth.
The airport saw growth in 11 of 12 months during 2017, and experienced 53 months of growth over a 60-month period.
From its tasty Troublemaker fall specialty drink to its featured spring MI Thyme signature cocktail, the mixologists at Ann Arbor’s The Kensington Hotel offer a flavorful selection of aftermeeting options.
Southfield venue adds a tasty twist to special events featuring food.
Hands down, these seven superstars shine the brightest.
It’s time for the winners of our readers’ choice awards to take a bow. Congratulations to all!
