2020 WOC Announcement
May 14, 2020

Dear Women of Color STEM Conference sponsors:

The city of Detroit is delighted to once again host the Women of Color STEM Conference in our great city, October 8-10, 2020. This year we intend to surpass all your expectations and deliver an unforgettable meeting that will make you want to come back yet again. We are determined to not let the importance of a diverse workforce suffer or go by the wayside as a result of the pandemic/virus.


The Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, and CCG, the company behind the Women of Color STEM Conference, have forged a strong partnership to ensure an outstanding convention in a city that has been transformed over the past decade, with billions of dollars in investment and a thriving, vibrant entertainment scene.


There is no question we are living through uncertain times right now and that safety and sanitation throughout a destination, including hotel, dining and entertainment venues, will be among the most important considerations for convention attendees going forward. Rest assured, we are working very closely with our hospitality partners and monitoring and implementing health and safety guidelines that meet and exceed CDC, state and federal guidelines. Guest safety and satisfaction is our priority in Detroit.

Let us be the first to welcome you to Detroit in October and wish you an educational, fun and memorable conference. Our team stands ready to serve your guests an outstanding visit.


Sincerely,

Larry Alexander
President & CEO
Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau
