Circle Michigan Members Benefit!
Circle Michigan was the very first destination marketing organization in the country geared specifically for the packaged group travel market. That was 30 years ago. Since then, many other states have followed in our footsteps - but nobody does it better than we do. Circle Michigan is a trusted name in the industry and was recognized as one of the top "Hardest Working Area/City Working with Motor Coaches" by American Bus Association. Your membership in Circle Michigan will give you the credibility needed in this market to increase your sales.
