Travel to Conference

We’re excited to have you travel here to join us at the 2019 MACUL Conference at Cobo Center in Detroit, MI.

The Cobo Center is the 17th largest convention center in the U.S. located  in the heart of downtown Detroit. It opened in 1960 and was originally named Cobo Hall in honor of former Detroit Mayor Albert E. Cobo.
