Participate in Event Activities

In addition to our daily presentations and panel discussions, we have planned some memorable evening activities.

Join us Tuesday evening for our ballroom dinner at the Grand Traverse Resort, created by the resort’s award-winning chef artisans with fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients. This is an excellent opportunity to meet DICE staff and other DICE users.

On Wednesday evening we’ll explore the beautiful Grand Traverse region with our color and wine tour dinner. After our Wednesday afternoon sessions, we’ll board charter buses and explore some of northern Michigan’s most scenic country roads and coastlines. A A Top 10 fall foliage destination, the Grand Traverse area comprises over 250 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, supplying some of the nation’s finest fall color viewing.

After the color tour we’ll arrive at Black Star Farms, one of Michigan’s premiere wine and culinary destinations. Upon arrival, you’ll have the opportunity to taste regional wines sourced from Black Star Farm’s 160-acre vineyard estate. Then we’ll dine in the Aquarius Room, enjoying locally sourced seasonal cuisine created by Black Star Farm’s executive chef.
