According to the Grand Rapids/Kent County Convention & Visitors Bureau, 70 percent of the national and regional conventions that are held in Grand Rapids are booked with the help of a local member. If you belong to a local club or organization that holds regional or national meetings, bringing those meetings to Grand Rapids will help the region’s economic development.
All you need to do is visit www.bringittograndrapids.com and provide the GRCVB with information about your group and its upcoming meetings/events and they’ll take it from there. Questions? Contact Nancy Ruppert at 616-233-2549 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
