On September 1st, SACC Detroit hosted a delegation from the city of Malmö in Detroit and Windsor for a visit in our region.
Once a year, the top managers of City of Malmö visit a destination of interest and this year, the plan was to visit and learn about Detroit. Maureen Krauss at the Detroit Regional Chamber helped organized meetings with Detroit Future City and M-1 Transit and gave an introduction and a walking tour of Detroit.
Malmö wanted to see how Detroit has changed from a bankrupt city to now a vibrant city core with the 6th best city walk in the world, a thriving restaurant industry, new hockey arena and an upcoming tram line etc. There was great interest from the delegation, and the group thoroughly enjoyed the program. The visit was concluded with a banquet dinner for SACC Detroit members and visitors at the Greektown Casino. On September 2
