The Venue

The Detroit Club has a rich history of being celebrated as the premier meeting place for some of the greatest business minds of our time. The meetings held behind these doors eventually led to a new age of industry and held an integral part in launching our nation into the superpower that it is today. These doors have opened once again to bring together the brightest and best minds that our great city has to offer. If you are attending the Symposium in person you can expect to enjoy a lavish strolling dinner and open bar throughout the event. Staying at the Detroit Club offers a special kind of experience right in the heart of Detroit. There are twenty-one, contemporarily crafted rooms to choose from, each honorably pays tribute to the architectural beauty that Wilson Eyre masterfully crafted in 1891. A block of rooms has been reserved for the event, but hurry if you plan to book, they won’t last long.
