    OFFER A HOMESTAY

    By opening your home to international visitors, you are given the opportunity to experience a new culture and build lasting friendships. Some delegations only visit for a weekend, but others may have extended visits to the Detroit Metro area. Homestays give you the opportunity to share your own culture and insight while building lasting friendships.

    MEET WITH VISITORS

    Share information and ideas with a professional counterpart from across the globe. Our international visitors come to Detroit to learn about how we do business and your experiences could shed some light on specialized topics of conversation. This cultural exchange could also give you a few ideas to help your own business prosper.
