Tom Bennett

Vice President, Sales & Services
aka The Closer

Tom oversees the convention sales, services and events teams for Experience Grand Rapids – which means a typical day might include closing a deal for a future event to be held in Grand Rapids, strategizing news ways to support our meeting planner clients and okaying designs for our latest trade show booth.  

Tom came to Experience Grand Rapids in 2014, fresh from a stint as Senior Vice President at Visit Sacramento. He is a member of the Michigan Society of Association Executives, American Society of Association Executives, Professional Convention Management Association, and Destination Marketing Association International.

Bio Bits:

  • Loves the Grand River view from the jdek at JW Marriott Grand Rapids
  • Recommends ATO Sushi and Founders Brewing Co. for great food & drink
  • Urges visitors to take advantage of downtown’s walkability
  • Tells anyone who’ll listen about the quality of our local golf courses

When he’s not golfing, Tom spends a lot of time cooking – and patronizing the Downtown Market food emporium for fresh ingredients and ideas.
