The New Governors' Hall

Governors' Hall GOV

Northern Michigan’s largest meeting and event space just got a brand-new look. The 19,000-square-foot venue, renowned for twice hosting the National Governors Association Conference, has a 32-year history of welcoming groups of up to 2,500 into its halls. Now, with updates to technology, décor, and a newly built meeting planner office, Governors' Hall is ready to celebrate another three decades of outstanding meetings. Cumberledge Design Group (Saltsburg, PA) designed the new look, while Bouma Corporation (Traverse City, MI) served as the renovation general contractor.

Transformed from the Inside Out

Updates to Governors' Hall include:

  • State-of-the-art Crestron® sound system for best-in-class audio performance
  • 100-square-foot private office for meeting planners and event staff
  • A vibrant "lake effect" design theme with new carpet, lighting, wall treatments, and décor
  • Linen-less tables and Michigan-made chairs
  • All-new digital signage providing custom messaging and vivid displays
  • All-new air walls for improved sound absorption and event privacy
  • LED lighting for improved ambience and energy savings

Holding an event at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa really is grand. It's a high-end venue, which makes our event more high-end. Governors' Hall is the only space in the Grand Traverse region where we can have most of our exhibitors in one room, and the team at the Resort is very creative and easy to work with.

Executive Officer, Home Builders Association of the Grand Traverse Area, Inc. Judy Vajda

Governors' Hall is a great room because of the large space and limitless ways in which it can be used. I have been with MASA for many years, so have seen this room set up in many different configurations. The flexibility of the room makes it great to use.
