Attendees at the Pure Michigan Governor’s Conference on Tourism, which took place November 2-4, were among the first to experience the new event space at One Campus Martius. The 16th-floor venue was the site of the conference’s opening reception, and guests were wowed by the 5,500-square-foot wraparound terrace and the spectacular views it provides of downtown Detroit. The main event area offers more than 7,800 square feet of flexible event space, which can be divided into three smaller rooms. An adjacent pre-function space of equal size is an ideal setting for event registration, meeting breaks, receptions, food stations and more. You can learn more at bedrockdetroit.com/event-venues.

So long, Cobo Hall! Huntington Place is the new name for Detroit’s world-class convention center. Karen Totaro, general manager for ASM Global, which runs the day-to-day operations for the venue, announced the name change. “Our partnership with Huntington Bank brings a wealth of opportunities to our community and visitors,” she said.

 

Temperatures are starting to dip in Seattle, but if you want to get in one last outdoor gathering before winter, consider The Rooftop at WeWork Cap Hill. Located on the penthouse level on 11th Avenue near Seattle’s storied Pine and Pike Streets, the space offers inviting landscapes and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Capacity: 74.  Bring sweaters and scarves!

 

Taking photos of oneself isn’t just a thing you do at an event, it can be the event itself. Case in point: The Selfie Museum of Detroit has opened. The brainchild of Detroit local Kelli Cooke and her 14-year-old daughter, Jordyn Watson, the space features 20 Instagrammable and TikTok-ready interactive backdrops, featuring oversized ice-cream cones, a kissing booth, a red pay phone, a baby blue slide, and more. Group tickets are available.
