Detroit – The Automotive Hub of the US

Despite economic difficulties that have persisted in recent years, Detroit has a rich and proud history that once boasted one of the wealthiest economies in the United States. It is the most populous city in the state of Michigan and the 29th most populous city in the US.

Fueled mostly by its place as the epicenter of the U.S. automotive industry, Detroit continues its recovery from the largest municipal bankruptcy ever filed in the United States. Today, national corporations like General Motors, Quicken Loans, and Little Caesars call the resurgent Detroit area home.

With a renewed sense of economic development, Detroit is also welcoming back corporate events, conventions, and trade shows. With a central location that’s just a 90-minute airplane flight from 60 percent of the U.S. population and over 40,000 competitively priced hotel rooms, the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau works aggressively to lure major corporations to town for meetings and events.
