The Right Place is an organization focused on bringing companies to West Michigan from around the world. In its first 30 years it is directly responsible for $4 billion in capital investment and creating more than 40,000 jobs throughout the region. Needless to say, it is an organization that drives economic growth in the area. This year the organization celebrates its 30th anniversary and they did so by honoring not only the organization, but by honoring the organization's CEO, Birgit Klohs. The event was sold out to hear not only influential business leaders in West Michigan like Doug DeVos and Dave Van Andel, but also Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
From arrival to departure, guests were taken care of by the wonderful staff of The Right Place, catering provided by Amway and entertainment for the evening provided by Vox Vidorra.
We were asked to not only capture the details of the Grand Rapids event, but also the guests as they mixed and mingled, the speakers for the evening and the overall atmosphere of the event.
