Destination Michigan forges partnership with Event Garde

Organizations reimagine the Michigan Meetings Expo and the Destination Michigan Showcase in 2013.

TRAVERSE CITY, MICH. – Destination Michigan is pleased to announce its new partnership with Event Garde. Together, Kim Corcoran and Aaron Wolowiec plan to reimagine both the Michigan Meetings Expo and the Destination Michigan Showcase to be held later this year.

The Michigan Meetings Expo – typically held in Metro Detroit – and the Lansing-based Destination Michigan Showcase are the organization’s signature marketing events. Over the years, suppliers and planners alike have celebrated these programs for their unique learning and networking formats.

“This year marks Destination Michigan’s tenth anniversary,” said Kim Corcoran, general manager. “Therefore, we hope to elevate each of these events to their fullest potential. We love the innovative thinking of Aaron Wolowiec and his staff, so this decision couldn’t have been easier.”

Event Garde is a Grand Rapids-based professional development consulting firm quickly gaining recognition for its creativity and leadership in the meetings industry. In December, Wolowiec was featured by Michigan Meetings + Events magazine as a “very important professional you need to know.”
Although the ink on the agreement is not yet dry, both Corcoran and Wolowiec are eager to begin planning these beloved industry events. “Expect the unexpected,” said Wolowiec, founder and president. “We have a lot of fun and innovative ideas up our sleeves.”
