Blog Take Over Presents: 5 Reasons to plan your meetings in Mt. Pleasant by MPACVB Executive Director, Chris Rowley

October 24th, 2018

Mt. Pleasant is a great meeting location in the state of Michigan.  It is home to many associations, government and corporate meetings and conferences throughout the year.  Here are five reasons why meeting planners choose Mt. Pleasant for their meetings:

  1. Great Central Location

Mt. Pleasant is located in the center of the state making it only one or two hours from anywhere in the Lower Peninsula. Here’s a breakdown: Mt. Pleasant is less than an hour from the Great Lakes Bay region, an hour from Lansing, 1 ½ hours from Grand Rapids and many northern Michigan cities, and two hours from Kalamazoo or Detroit. 

  1. Grow Attendance

There’s a reason why meeting planners choose Mt. Pleasant – it’s where attendance goes to grow! The centralized location offers a shorter drive for all attendees, leaving no excuse for low attendance! Everyone can easily drive to Mt. Pleasant and still be home in time to tuck the kids in. 

  1. Variety of meeting space

Mt. Pleasant is home to a variety of spaces to fit your meeting’s needs! From conference hotels such as the Comfort Inn & Suites Hotel and Conference Center, the Courtyard Mt. Pleasant at Central Michigan University and the new Holiday Inn & Suites to more unique venues such as The Ginkgo Tree Inn, Bucks Run Golf Club, and the Broadway Theatre in Downtown Mt. Pleasant; whatever the meeting type, we’ve got you covered. 

  1. Big City Amenities

Looking for some fun entertainment for attendees? Mt. Pleasant is home to the largest gaming floor in Michigan inside Soaring Eagle Casino and 500+ annual events at Central Michigan University.  Both offer year-round entertainment from world class concerts to Division 1 college sporting events; there is ALWAYS something going on in the Mt. Pleasant area.  Downtown Mt. Pleasant offers unique specialty stores, one of a kind restaurants and an amazing park system. We suggest leaving some room to explore the area while here for a meeting.
