Need to shuttle a group about town?

Looking for a truly unique Detroit experience for your meeting attendees? The Detroit Bus Company is here to help.

The transportation company, founded by 26-year-old Detroit native Andy Didorosi in response to the city’s dismal public transportation system, has evolved into one of the most innovative, interesting and unique companies around.

The Detroit Bus Company offers a host of services: daily public transport, private rental vehicles and tours. Its vehicles are mostly rehabbed school buses; all are biodiesel-fueled, hand-painted by local artists and tricked out with modern amenities like free onboard Wi-Fi and names like Bettis and Lochness.

The company also offers themed tours, recent examples of which include: Drunks of Antiquity: A Detroit Historical Bar Tour. Or check out What They Made: An Automotive History Tour.

Virtual events and digital skills have become vital to the meetings and events industry like never before. As it wasn’t absolutely necessary for planners to have these skills before the pandemic, the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) stepped in to help professionals obtain the skills they need to help contribute to the future of meetings and events.

 

Food trucks and meetings have gone hand in hand prior to March—but the pandemic and the resulting increase in outdoor events has launched the Andiamo Food Truck to new heights.

 

Virtual and hybrid events will be the norm for quite some time. To effectively host an event that is completely virtual or hybrid, meeting planners will need to partner with a skilled audio-visual team to provide the technical expertise and show production knowledge.
