Mackinac Island Meetings and Conventions

Sometimes you can do more productive work on your business when you’re not working in your business. When you can take a step away from the distractions and to-do lists of day-to-day operations and focus on the big picture.

Mackinac Island presents the ideal opportunity to do just that. To think outside the box in a place so different that it naturally stimulates your creative spirit. To access state-of-the-art technology and modern amenities while at the same time exposing yourself to historic charm at every turn. To have a blast after hours in a truly unique place with something fun to do for everyone.

For your next business meeting or convention, consider Mackinac Island.
