The success of Michigan Catch and Cook program has opened up many new opportunities to partner with your local restaurants and extend your customer’s fishing experience into port communities, and that is good for everyone!

Now Michigan is taking it one step further.

Michigan is on the cusp of some delicious developments and you’re invited to help foster it to fruition! Join up for the first Culinary Tourism Alliance meeting for Prosperity Region #2 (see regional prosperity initiative map).

Region #2 -Initial Meeting
December 17, 2013
Boyne District Library Community Room

Culinary Tourism is a growing trend in tourism, as consumers spend an increasing amount of time and money engaging in authentic and unique food and beverage experiences when they travel. An increase in media coverage for food information (Food Network etc.) and the internet have helped consumers pursue this area of interest.

The Michigan Culinary Tourism Alliance is an initiative to raise awareness about the economic benefits of promoting Michigan as a culinary destination. To move the initiative further, regional Culinary Tourism Alliances are forming to identify, create, and promote unique culinary opportunities around Michigan.

You’re invited, please join up for the first meeting of the Region #2 Alliance. To participate, simply send your RSVP to
