Come for the Conference, stay for the weekend
More than just the host for MTA’s 2023 Annual Conference, the Traverse City region has so much to enjoy and experience in the springtime. Why not extend your stay, and take advantage of all that this northern Michigan playground has to offer? Come for the MTA Conference, and stay a little while to see why USA Today called Traverse City one of the “10 Best Small Towns in America.” Hotels with MTA room blocks may extend discounted rates for Conference attendees who wish to spend a little more time in the Grand Traverse area. You must contact your hotel directly to add additional nights to your stay; extended reservations cannot be made via the MTA Housing Bureau.
