All individuals who stay at Grand Hotel must be registered for the Conference. Spouses must register in advance to enter Grand Hotel properties.

2022 Mackinac Policy Conference Spouse Registration Policy

Due to capacity restrictions, the reduced registration fee for spouse registration is no longer available for 2022. If your spouse is interested in attending the Conference, the standard attendee registration fee of $2,500 is available.

At this time, the revised spouse registration policy only applies to the 2022 Conference and will be reconsidered for 2023. If you would like to provide feedback to the Chamber to help inform future spouse participation decisions, please email Wendy Nodge by July 1, 2022, at

Solicitation Policy

Solicitation of Conference attendees in an effort to fundraise or sell any idea, product, service, venture, cause, or action, however worthy or potentially of value to the solicited member, is prohibited while on Grand Hotel property. While much of the Conference’s value comes from its networking capability, and while we do not intend to interfere with that benefit, the Chamber has received many requests for such a policy from regular Conference attendees. Individuals violating this policy will be dealt with immediately and could be excluded from the Conference immediately and in the future.

The Chamber controls the distribution of “Conference-sanctioned materials” throughout the Grand Hotel and other Conference venues. Distribution of other materials is strictly prohibited. No attendee or organization (company, entity, media outlet, political campaign) can distribute materials, publications, postcards, other items, or gifts on Grand Hotel property (including main Conference venue and other facilities owned and operated by Grand Hotel) and Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry facilities. If non-sanctioned materials are found, Conference staff is instructed to remove and dispose of the materials from the premises. Individuals distributing materials will be dealt with immediately and could be excluded from the Conference immediately and in the future.

Video Cameras and Recording

Video cameras and recording devices by credentialed media are not allowed in the Grand Hotel Theatre without permission of the Detroit Regional Chamber AND AN ESCORT BY CHAMBER STAFF for B-roll only. News organizations that want to capture main stage programming inside the Theatre may make a special request through the Media Center to be escorted into the Theatre for limited recording. Media wishing to capture video/audio of main-stage programming in the Theatre are provided access to a pool feed. The Detroit Regional Chamber reserves the right to ask a reporter with a camera to leave the Theatre at any time.

NOTE: Due to contracts with Conference speakers, video and audio recordings of some speakers at the Mackinac Policy Conference may be restricted or may not be allowed.

Flash Photography

Flash photography is not allowed in Grand Hotel Theatre. Photographers shooting in the Theatre are welcome to take photographs, but must not use a flash. A Flickr photo feed will be uploaded in real-time, and media will be provided the link or can request it by emailing Chris Moyer.
