If you’re organizing a corporate meeting, trade show, or convention, you’ve probably been combing through hotels with banquet rooms and plenty of guest accommodations.

In-person meetings are back. Teleconferencing is a valuable tool, but it falls short of replacing the connections made when colleagues meet face to face.

There are many conference centers in Michigan, but Treetops Resort is your Pure Michigan meeting, event, and business retreat getaway.
