In August, College Pro hosted a full-time staff conference in Detroit. Yes, Detroit! And we think you should go there too!
With a goal to innovate and change as a company ourselves, we thought, why not visit a city that is in the process of doing just that?
ENTER, DETROIT + our theme Perform & Transform.
To set the stage, we created a video trailer for our team. WATCH HERE.
Where we stayed: Hilton Downtown – Fort Shelby
Fun sh*t for social events: we visited PunchBowl and Drive… but learned of the others while booking our events.
PunchBowl Social, karaoke, bowling, darts, shuffleboard & a killer ambiance
Fowling Warehouse, football bowling (ahem, Fowling)
Drive, ping pong club
HopCat, craft beer bar
The Whitney, paranormal dinners & more
Why we’d recommend Detroit:
There’s a revival happening.
Prices are competitive.
Neat businesses are opening.
It’s not what you’ll expect – it’s better.
People are excited to host you!
Something different, for College Pro: INDUSTRY TOURS.
For the first time ever, in the history of College Pro Conferencing, we did some Industry Tours! We reached out to local businesses that might have a story to share with us and/or a neat space to show us. We found 4 businesses who welcomed us with open arms & split our group in 4, and sent them on their way.
