Lodging and Transportation

All event activities will take place at DeVos Place Convention Center and the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The two venues are connected via a skywalk.

The Amway Grand Plaza, considered the finest hotel in West Michigan, sits snuggled in downtown Grand Rapids — surrounded by art museums, stunning architecture, a lively music, sports, and theater scene and arguably some of the best restaurants and the very best breweries in the entire country. Not to mention the incredible scene surrounding you before you even walk out of our doors.
