Gateway to the Playground of a Nation: A Look Back at Promoting Grand Rapids and West Michigan
April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Grand Rapids has been the home of the West Michigan Tourist Association since 1917. Even Earlier, the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce promoted the city starting in 1887. Other organizations such as the Grand Rapids Advertising Club and the Grand Rapids/Kent County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (now Experience Grand Rapids) also had a hand in promoting the city and region, bringing tourists and travelers to experience the attractions of our city and the beauty and recreational opportunities on our side of the state. M. Christine Byron will take you on a visitor’s tour of Grand Rapids, as promoted by these organizations in days gone by.
Co-sponsored with the Grand Rapids Historical Society.
