Request for Proposals
Update: MSAE understands the hospitality industry has been greatly impacted by COVID-19 and staff capacity is limited. For this reason, the deadline for responses to the RFP has been extended by a week to allow venues and CVBs additional time to coordinate efforts. Please note the new proposal deadline is March 5, 2021.  

MSAE seeks proposals from Michigan venues to host three 2021 in-person meetings and events:

  • July 2021: MSAE 2021 Meetings & Education Summit (formerly CMP Summit)
  • August 2021: MSAE 2021 Annual Conference (formerly ORGPRO)
  • October 2021: MSAE 2021 Association Executive Forum

A copy of the RFP was emailed to all CVB and venue contacts on February 10, 2021. Interested parties should read and review the RFP in its entirety before preparing a response or reaching out with questions.

Venues are encouraged to submit only one proposal for the single event they believe:

  • Complements the venue’s seasonal occupancy demands.
  • They can best serve given the parameters outlined in this RFP.
  • Best aligns with their target audience for future business opportunities.

Preference will be given to proposals submitted by MSAE members, and we strongly recommend the venue work with their CVB to create an event experience/proposal that will showcase both the venue and the local community.

Proposals are due Friday, February 26, 2021 March 5, 2021. Submissions, as well as any questions about this RFP, may be directed to:
