MIM+E held its annual Best of Michigan party May 22 at the new Blue Water Convention Center in Port Huron. Empty Canvas provided the entertainment; Kurt Colone and the team from Mike Staff Productions emceed and played music; Chateau Chantal provided a wine tasting table; SugarHigh Bakery delighted guests with a sweets table; and Emerald City Designs provided the floral arrangements and linens. 

First came COVID. Then came the tornado.

The northern Michigan community of Gaylord was just starting to rebound from the pandemic with its groups and events business as a new season was getting underway when a rare EF3 tornado with estimated wind speeds between 136 and 165 miles per hour struck May 20.

Two people were killed and at least 44 were injured, according to official reports at the time. West Michigan meteorologist Bill Steffen said it was the strongest tornado to strike in the U.S. that month. 

 

A conference or convention venue might be described by meeting planners as offering ease and convenience for multiple reasons. It may be because its address is easily accessible from numerous compass points. Or perhaps it’s the destination—with a variety of opportunities for activities and entertainment close-by. And of course, it could be that the venue itself offers a peaceful, easy setting with all the comforts you could want. 

Well, at Treetops Resort, it’s all of the above. 

 

When you meet in one of the country’s great leisure destinations, sparks fly and creativity soars. 

Known for dense forests and trout streams, remote Great Lakes beaches and cottage living, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (U.P.) and Mackinac Island have long been the settings for memorable vacations. The same natural beauty and endless outdoor activities that attract leisure visitors make the area an appealing destination for corporate meetings and retreats.
