Let Experience Jackson Welcome Your Connections to Jackson County

Experience Jackson is a proud sister organization to the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce. As both a Chamber member and a partner, we are thrilled to support and promote Jackson County’s energy and growth! As Jackson County’s official Convention and Visitors Bureau, you might first think of us as just the tourism cheerleaders. We are much more than that. We are all about making connections, backing local businesses through recommendations, and highlighting our unique community vibe. 

One aspect of what Experience Jackson does is helping you plan events. Whether you’re putting together a business bash, a convention for your industry, or a special soirée, Experience Jackson has got your back. We frequently interact with venues and locations to host your event. Although we love to work with lovebirds seeking the perfect wedding spot; we’re also pros at finding unique venues for small meetings, retreats, and finding overnight lodging at our 15 Jackson County hotels where your guests can comfortably stay. Jackson is a prime spot at the intersection of I-94 and US-127, with much more cost-effective stay and activity options than some of the bigger towns surrounding us. Did we mention free parking? 

For those of you showing off Jackson to clients or potential hires, we’ve got you covered with freebie welcome bags packed with insider info and local goodies. Just make a request. It’s all about making folks feel at home and spreading that Jackson County hospitality. These little gestures don’t just highlight how awesome our community is; they leave a lasting mark on visitors, making them want to dive into all the cool stuff Jackson County has going on. If you’re looking to plan an event, we can provide insight into catering or food truck options, and even help you find a date when there are otherwise gaps on the calendar. We love to see events that run concurrently work together and offer a partnership – whether through promotion or coordination to visiting audiences.  

We’re not just event planning connectors; we’re also familiar with all the cool attractions and activities around Jackson County. From group-friendly eateries to team-building adventures, we’re all about making sure visitors make memories while supporting our local businesses and showing off what makes Jackson County so special. Through teamwork with our partners, we’re shining a spotlight on the local flavor that keep folks coming back for more – whether that be literal flavor at one of our many delicious restaurants, enjoying the Bright Walls murals, enjoying the summertime lights over the Cascades Falls, horseback riding in Grass Lake, or browsing the shops in a village like Brooklyn. We even coordinate Stay & Play packages for golfers wanting to get out on the greens.

At Experience Jackson, we’re all about serving up a buffet of services for event planners and locals alike. Whether you need some personal touch or just want to dive into all things Jackson, we’re here for you. Send us an email at or call us at (517) 764-4440. Our crew is on deck Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST, and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to help craft the retreat or experience that’s just right for you.  

We’ve recently compiled a Corporate Meetings Guide that’s free to download on our website.

Together, we’re building a brighter, richer future for everyone through creating connections and being a resource for the perfect, memorable trip and experience in Jackson County.
