Group & Meeting Travel

Alpena is growing in popularity as a unique destination for small meetings, regional conferences, academic competitions, and business events. A delightful change of pace, Alpena offers everything from events complex meeting space to walkable options in the charming downtown district. Attendees will love being surrounded by nature’s beauty while still enjoying all the conveniences they are used to in larger-scale destinations like coffee shops, farm-to-table dining, museums, art galleries, Michigan micro-brews and locally-vinted wine.
