You have heard the news about Detroit – its resurgence, its transformation, its comeback. But now, it’s go time Detroit. And we can’t wait for you to see it for yourself at the 2018 ITS America Annual Meeting.
We are proud of our automotive heritage, but you can feel a newfound energy moving through The D. From cyclists pedaling through the streets using the MoGo bike share system, to the QLine, the city’s new streetcar system, zipping up and down Woodward Avenue – Detroit is alive with a vibe you can’t find anywhere else. What better place to host the 2018 ITS America Annual Meeting?
The development stretches beyond transportation and connectivity. It includes The District Detroit, an entirely new 50-block neighborhood encompassing the world-class sports facility, Little Caesars Arena, home of the Detroit Red Wings and Pistons. The District Detroit represents the greatest density of professional sports teams in one downtown core in the country.
If you’re the foodie-type, indulge in Detroit’s nationally trending dining scene, where there’s a collection of newcomers and staples alike. Explore the heart of the city, Campus Martius Park, or walk Detroit’s beautiful international riverfront.
In Detroit, it’s go time and we are thrilled to host ITS America. We are retooled, revved, re-energized and ready to show off – and we can’t wait to see you in The D.
Larry Alexander is the President & CEO of the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau.
