2017 HCAM/MCAL Annual Convention & Expo

2017 HCAM|MCAL Annual Convention & Expo
September 17-20, 2017 | Amway Grand Plaza Hotel & DeVos Place | Grand Rapids, MI

Upcoming Annual Convention & Expo Reminders:

Art Prize Preview Week will take place the same week as this year's HCAM|MCAL Annual Convention & Expo and is expected to bring in 60,000 attendees. ArtPrize will officially kick off on the last day of Convention on Sept.20. From September 20 through October 8, around 400,000 ArtPrize attendees will descend upon three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids. HCAM & MCAL are thrilled that the 2017 HCAM & MCAL Annual Convention & Expo participants will have the opportunity to enjoy and experience the excitement of ArtPrize! It is imperative that HCAM|MCAL Annual Convention & Expo participants and exhibitors make their lodging accommodations now! HCAM|MCAL also encourages our conference participants and exhibitors to anticipate delayed or extended travel time in and out of the downtown Grand Rapids area and limited parking options due to ArtPrize.

If you are not familiar, ArtPrize® is an open, independently organized international art competition and is recognized as the most-attended public art event on the planet according to The Art Newspaper. ArtPrize was recently highlighted in The New York Times' 52 Places To Go. Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown in more than 160 venues, including both the HCAM|MCAL Annual Convention & Expo sites, the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel and DeVos Place —museums, galleries, bars, restaurants, theaters, hotels, public parks, lobbies, buildings, walls, bridges, laundromats, and auto body shops—and it's all free and open to the public. It's unorthodox, highly disruptive, and undeniably intriguing to the art world and the public alike.
