What Our Clients Say

“Destination Ann Arbor was a HUGE help to bringing our group of 70 to the area for our annual visit exchange program, both with selecting venues and then being on hand while we were in town.  They provided local expertise and recommendations that my research alone could not match.  We have visited many communities in the past and the visitors organizations have always been helpful, but the level of involvement Destination Ann Arbor had throughout our trip formation process was top notch.  Kudos to the team!” - Jolyn Sattizahn, Vice President of Community Affairs, Columbia Chamber of Commerce

“I’d like to graciously thank Destination Ann Arbor for assisting us in finding a perfect venue for our annual corporate event. We needed a space that could fit 100 to 200 people, and the bureau found the perfect place for our needs. Their attention to detail and follow through helped make our event a success!” - Kijuana Butler, Community Action Network

"Our event couldn't have gone better; everything was great! We very much appreciate all the assistance, from getting the hotel room block to gift bags and more. Can't thank you enough for your help, and I enthusiastically recommend your services!" - Jim Stodolak, Kappa Sigma Fraternity

"The conference was wonderful. Ann Arbor goodies were a huge hit! Everyone raved about the commute from DTW, so the location was perfect." - Kristine Nash-Wong, Director of Marketing, XLerant
