This year’s conference and lodging will again be at the beautiful and historic Amway Grand Plaza in Grand Rapids, MI.  October 27-29, 2024

Join us as we come together to celebrate, make new friends, and explore vendor options.

A quote from the 2023 conference :

“I thank you (Donna), Byron, and the Board again for a wonderful experience these past two days! It was warm, thoughtful, thought-provoking, and innovative! I was very impressed and learned a lot!  I’m proud to be a part of MBBA! Michigan is one of those states that really “gets it” in every industry. B&B Hospitality is no less. Looking forward to more!”
