Detroit, Mich. (PRWEB) March 20, 2013

Each year the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau (DMCVB) hosts two Family Reunion Planning Seminars. This spring’s seminar will take place this Saturday on March 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit.

The purpose of the Family Reunion Planning Seminar is to give family reunion planners the tips and materials they need to plan a memorable reunion in metro Detroit. With an interactive trade show followed by informational presentations, the seminar serves as a one-stop shop for reunion planners looking for inspiration for their events, and it is completely free of charge.

“The DMCVB can help reunion planners with their events from start to finish,” says Sales Manager, Reunion, Tour & Small Meetings, Nikki Donald. “This year we’re offering an all-encompassing planning guide that provides planners with detailed timelines and steps for forming committees. It’s a piece they won’t want to go home without.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to browse and mingle with the dozens of exhibitors in attendance who will elaborate on the services they have to offer. Their booths will represent hotels, banquet facilities, entertainment companies, caterers, attractions, T-shirt and souvenir companies and other metro Detroit companies.

The second half of the seminar is dedicated to providing attendees with information that will help them answer the following questions:

  •     How can the DMCVB help with my reunion?
  •     What are some unique ideas for my reunion?
  •     What do I need to know before signing a hotel contract?
  •     What kind of timeline should I be keeping while planning?

In previous years, the event has attracted between 450-500 attendees and 45-50 exhibitors. If you’re interested in attending, you must register at http://www.meetdetroit.com/reunions.
