As of August 2019, Detroit’s renowned convention center is officially renamed the TCF Center

The change came in the form of an unprecedented 22-year naming rights deal that will set the venue for financial success in the future, as well as a move toward becoming a self-sustaining facility by 2024.  

With such changes, the convention center’s 1.5 million annual visitors are only bound to increase. Located over the Detroit River, the 30,000-square-foot glass atrium is the 17th largest convention center in the country and includes a public art collection, grand ballroom, exhibit space, terraces, and more than 100 meeting and banquet rooms. For event planners, the space also includes free wifi, programmable video displays, food and beverage services, and is an Event Industry Council APEX/ASTM certified facility.  

In a space that celebrates Detroit’s rich industrial and cultural heritage at every turn, visitors and event planners alike are sure to have a great experience at the TCF Center.

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
