“Start spreading the news,” Frank Sinatra croons in his signature song about New York. In truth, when it comes to spreading news about a U.S. destination, it’s Michigan that lands on top. As David Lorenz, vice president of Travel Michigan, noted in his end-of-year-letter, Shareablee, a leading provider of social media performance data, recognized Pure Michigan as the number-one tourism bureau in the country for social media engagement in its November Top U.S. Tourism Boards on Social report. “Thanks to our travel partners statewide who helped us tell the Pure Michigan story to our worldwide audience of nearly 3 million, making recognition like this possible,” Lorenz wrote. It helps when a state has a great story to tell. 

A recent survey demonstrates the resilience of the hospitality industry and the dedication of the industry’s professionals.

 

Nobody needed to step on a scale when the 7th Annual Michigan Energy Summit announced the winners of the annual Michigan Battle of the Buildings “bigger loser” competition in an event hosted under the Grant Pavilion at Millennium Park in Grand Rapids in August. But the mood was jubilant when six local organizations were recognized as 2020 awardees for balancing significant changes in energy, water, health and safety measures since the onset of the pandemic and demonstrating stewardship, resilience, collaboration, and community service.

 

It’s hard, if not impossible, to beat the beauty of Michigan when it comes to leaf peeping and other autumn activities.
