Huntington Breakfast Lecture with Mike Guswiler in the new L. William Seidman Center 

Join us for our next Huntington Breakfast Lecture featuring Mike Guswiler, President of the West Michigan Sports Commission.

Topic: "The $7B Business of Sports Tourism – How West Michigan Can Get a Bigger Piece of the Pie"

Mike was named the first executive director of the West Michigan Sports Commission (WMSC) in 2007 when the commission was established, leading all operations since its inception. Under his leadership, the commission has booked nearly 300 sporting events that attracted 315,000 athletes and visitors, generating more than $100 million in direct visitor spending. Mike was recently promoted to president to serve in an expanded role overseeing WMSC operations, the signature Meijer State Games of Michigan, and construction and operation of the championship-caliber Art Van Sports Complex opening in 2015.

Event parking is available in the Watson Lot. See maps at www.gvsu.edu/meetatgvsu for directions.

The event is free and open to the public.
