More than 55 CEOs and professional staff members of the Michigan Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus enjoyed the inspiring sights of Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize Nine during the group’s 24th annual educational conference in September.

The two-and-a-half day event, at the DoubleTree Hotel 28th Street Airport in Grand Rapids, was packed with professional content directed to destination marketing teams. It featured eight speakers and 15 vendor displays.
