More than 100 advertising and marketing professionals were given an exclusive tour of Detroit’s revitalization on Wednesday. It was all for the 2017 AdAge Brand Summit/Detroit. Many of the attendees came from New York City, Chicago and other parts of Michigan. The morning session kicked off with presentations inside the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel. Then, everyone was shuttled on giant tour buses to the Cass Corridor to check out the Third Man Records vinyl pressing plant and the Motor City Brewing Works craft beer brewery. The afternoon wrapped up at The Beacon at One Woodward, one of 90 buildings owned by Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert or his Rock Venture businesses.
