Regional Destination Development

HandsWe at the Greater Lansing Convention and
Visitors Bureau
recognize that the unique individuals that make up our community are as big a part of our tourism appeal as our attractions, hotels, shops and restaurants.

We are a hard-working, friendly and accepting community, with a solid framework focused on the future and grounded in our rich history. We spend our days living among the entrepreneurial spirit that makes our Capital Region what it is today. We are here to grow the seeds planted for this community by innovators like Ransom Eli Olds, pioneering botany professor William J. Beal and Michigan Governor William L. Greenly, who formally signed into law the act of the legislature officially making Lansing the State Capital.

Surrounded by the inheritance of these past great community leaders, one must ask, "What then is our legacy?"

For the GLCVB, our answer to this question is the Team Lansing Foundation. Please join us by making an investment in our area's youth, helping drive the development of new and improved tourism attractions and by taking a lead role in moving Lansing forward.


The mission of the Team Lansing Foundation is to champion destination development in Greater Lansing through education, research and participation with initiatives that enhance and elevate the value of the tourism
assets within our community.
