TANA Venue Committee will be providing optimal support working effectively, efficiently and fairly to ensure smooth operations during the entire duration of the TANA convention. One of the key priorities for the committee includes maintaining effective relationships with venue contacts and other committee members operating within the Cobo Center in the beautifully transformed Detroit.

The three focus areas for the venue committee will be: Time, Quality and Ease of Use. The venue committee will ensure that all programs and events are evenly placed across all the rooms and halls within the convention center. Basic necessities will be provided along with quality support with timeliness as a chief factor. There are 50 rooms in the convention center that can accommodate 45 programs simultaneously. Main auditorium, exhibits hall and dining hall hold 10,000 people each. There are 4 ball rooms that can accommodate 1000 plus people and a huge banquet hall. This involves a huge effort from the team to support and assist several individuals owning several responsibilities. The committee will establish contact with facilitators of approved programs or their group representatives in order to assess specific venue needs for each approved event.

Each volunteer in the committee supervises 5 to 8 rooms during the conference and coordinates with various other committees to assist them with their respective customized requirements. The committee will develop an effective system for tracking, maintaining ongoing communications, and improving relationships with venue contacts and other committee leads. All this in a beautiful massive space that has cutting edge technology and surrounding nature that makes for a spectacular view.

Sounds super exciting? Well, then take a panoramic look at what Cobo Center has to offer:
