Detroit is open for business — thriving and ready to welcome us! The Cobo Center and the Ford Field Stadium are state-of-the-art facilities in downtown Detroit, where all our meetings will take place. The downtown area has been rejuvenated with new apartment buildings, condos and restaurants. It is full of new businesses that are finding homes in historic neighborhoods and restored buildings. First-class restaurants and amenities are transforming the area into a vibrant hub of activity. The convention center has been entirely renovated and the riverfront is completely revitalized. Downtown Detroit is breaking stereotypes by being one of the safest among Midwestern convention cities. Also known as the Motor City and the birthplace of the Motown sound, Detroit has a rich history and a lively cultural and musical scene where you can find a myriad of fun and interesting things to do.
MEETINGS, MEETINGS AND MORE MEETINGS!
Beginning Thursday at midnight through early Sunday, marathon A.A. meetings will be held in English and Spanish. A.A. topic meetings, workshops, panels, special interest meetings, and regional meetings will be held Friday and Saturday at the Cobo Center. Sharing with members from around the world will energize you to carry the message back home!
A.A. EVENTS IN THE MOTOR CITY!
Hart Plaza, located next to the Cobo Center, will host Thursday evening’s Party in the Park. Friday night we all come together in the Ford Field Stadium for the Flag Ceremony and Opening A.A. Meeting; Saturday night for an Oldtimers A.A. Meeting; and Sunday morning for the Closing A.A. Meeting. There will be more dancing and fellowship opportunities at the Cobo Center after the Friday and Saturday night A.A. Meetings.
AL-ANON AND ALATEEN ACTIVITIES
A variety of daytime activities, including meetings and workshops for Al-Anon and Alateen, are scheduled at the Marriott Hotel at the Renaissance Center. There will be meetings offered in French and Spanish, along with the English program. And, of course, Al-Anons and Alateens will join the festivities at the Thursday night Party in the Park, the Big Meetings and more.
