Come for the Conference, Stay for the Weekend

More than just the host for MTA’s 2019 Annual Conference, the Grand Rapids region has so much to enjoy and experience in the spring. Why not extend your stay, and take advantage of all the fun and excitement that West Michigan has to offer?

Fill your stomach and your brain with trend-setting beerfoodart and music scenes. Explore a wonderland of outdoor recreation and family fun. Grand Rapids is easy to get to, easy to get around in, easy to afford. No wonder Expedia calls Grand Rapids, Michigan one of America’s Super Cool Cities. Plan your visit today!

Hotels with MTA room blocks may extend discounted rates for Conference attendees who wish to spend a little more time in the Grand Rapids area. You must contact your hotel directly to add additional nights to your stay; extended reservations cannot be made via the MTA Housing Bureau.

We will also have a local expert from Experience Grand Rapids on-site during the Conference, to assist with questions, offer directions and make dining and entertainment recommendations.
