‘Discover the D’ Weekend

By Jeffrey Buck

A two-day event hosted by Detroit Nation will offer metro Detroit residents a chance to converse with local leaders, business owners and entrepreneurs about our ever-transforming city. This first ever event will take place October 14th – 16th. Other events will include touring some of Detroit’s most eclectic and innovative attractions including the Russell Industrial Center, the Oakland Avenue Farmer’s Market and the Heidelberg Project.

“Detroit is a city that has captured the imagination of the country in recent years, first for its decline, and now for its incredible amount of growth and potential,” said Rachel Jacobs, co-founder, Detroit Nation. “Detroit is increasingly being viewed as a microcosm of the country, and Discover the D is an exciting opportunity for native Detroiters living both locally and elsewhere to have an intimate conversation with the people who will drive Detroit forward.”

The event does have a $100 registration fee and includes all meals and refreshments as well as all tours and speakers.
