Step up to the plate and get ready to swing into the heart of Detroit's baseball spirit at Comerica Park!

As part of Tourism Academy 2024, you're in for a home run experience — every attendee scores big with an included ticket to the game, offering prime views from sections 213-216.

Closing Party (with Lip Sync Battle) at Historic Saint Andrew's Hall

Where: Saint Andrew's Hall | 431 E Congress St, Detroit, MI 48226

After grabbing dinner on your own earlier in the evening, end the conference with live music from the Tempest house band and rock the night away at Saint Andrew's Hall. The historic venue is located in the heart of Detroit's downtown (just a 15-minute walk or 5-minute car ride from the host hotel) and is notably one of the first stages on which Eminem performed. Saint Andrew's Hall's downstairs venue, The Shelter, was also prominently featured in the famous rap battle scene from 8 Mile.
