What is a FAM trip?  The purpose of a FAM trip (short for familiarization) is to give you a snapshot look at the region and what we have to offer for your meetings and events.  


This offer is just $25 (admin fee), includes all of your meals and logding (provided by Traverse City Tourism) and is only open to planners who have NOT been on this trip in past years.

We will include all of our major convention hotels as well as some unique off-site venues and activities.  While this trip is packed full of information and tours, our hope is that it will give you just a taste of what Traverse City can offer and that you will think of us first when considering the location for your next conference, meeting or event!

Below is a sample itinerary for your visit. We will adjust to more exact times and locations as the event is confirmed:
