NEW! Lunch Loop

Downtown Detroit and the Renaissance Center are just a couple of the amazing destinations in Detroit.  That’s why we’re offering the Lunch Loop, a free charter bus running on a continuous loop from the Atwater Street entrance near the Marriott Motor Lobby  to a different Detroit neighborhood each day.  Lunch loop buses will run between the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. each day of the conference.  Just show the driver or transportation volunteer your conference badge and hop on!
