A Grand Welcome


Every year, Experience Grand Rapids partners with other local businesses to host a reception for area newcomers, community connectors and rising leaders.

It’s our job to market Grand Rapids as a welcoming and inclusive destination for all visitors. That starts with helping to make it welcoming and inclusive for its residents.

A Grand Welcome is our way to reach out to newcomers – especially minority residents – and facilitate connections that will improve their lives, their careers and their sense of belonging. This strengthens the fabric of our community and makes Grand Rapids more appealing for residents and visitors alike.

This event is sponsored by Experience Grand Rapids, The Right Place, Hello West Michigan, Grand Rapids-Kent County Convention/Arena Authority, and The Grand Rapids Chamber.
