As of August 2019, Detroit’s renowned convention center is officially renamed the TCF Center

The change came in the form of an unprecedented 22-year naming rights deal that will set the venue for financial success in the future, as well as a move toward becoming a self-sustaining facility by 2024.  

With such changes, the convention center’s 1.5 million annual visitors are only bound to increase. Located over the Detroit River, the 30,000-square-foot glass atrium is the 17th largest convention center in the country and includes a public art collection, grand ballroom, exhibit space, terraces, and more than 100 meeting and banquet rooms. For event planners, the space also includes free wifi, programmable video displays, food and beverage services, and is an Event Industry Council APEX/ASTM certified facility.  

In a space that celebrates Detroit’s rich industrial and cultural heritage at every turn, visitors and event planners alike are sure to have a great experience at the TCF Center. 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
