Meeting in Grand Rapids: A Handbook

Our website is full of information that will help make your Grand Rapids meeting a success, but sometimes it's nice to have the basics close at hand. Our Crafted for Meetings brochure is aimed at groups wishing to meet in an urban environment, with all the amenities and infrastructure of a big city.

Our downtown convention neighborhood, anchored by a state-of-the-art convention center, is within a 10-minute walk (or FREE bus ride) of 200+ hotels, restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. Just don’t expect big-city hassle: downtown GR is clean, safe, compact and filled with smiling faces eager to make you and your attendees feel at home.

Download the brochure for details on the convention center, downtown hotels, off-site meeting venues, air service to Grand Rapids and more. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, you can click here to find additional downtown meeting venues.

Grand Rapids also has many options for meetings outside the city center, close to such suburban points of interest as Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park (one of the world’s top 100 most-visited art museums), the 28th Street commercial district (one of Michigan’s busiest retail corridors), golf courses, family fun attractions and the Gerald R. Ford International Airport.  Click here to explore suburban meeting venues.
