Denise Drach sees it often: Visitors come to Detroit for the first time and are amazed by the city’s architecture, beauty and cultural attractions.
And now? A whole crop of first-time visitors will descend upon Detroit for the Urban Land Institute’s Spring Meeting, being held May 1 -3 in the city’s Cobo Center.
For Drach, director of business development with Detroit-based architecture and interior-design firm ROSSETTI, the conference is a chance to show off the progress Detroit has made since filing for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection in 2013.
And the fact that the Urban Land Institute chose Detroit as the home for its spring conference? Drach says it’s more evidence that the news of Detroit’s recovery is spreading across the country.
