Downtown Promotions Meetings

Join us as we shake things up at the monthly Downtown Marquette Promotions Meetings, held the second Wednesday of each month. Please note, we’re changing the time to 8:00 a.m., in order to accommodate more business owners.
For the September meeting on Wednesday the 13th, the meeting will be held at Range Bank at 100 N. Front Street in Downtown Marquette. Business owners and employees are invited to join us for discussions about promotional opportunities, upcoming events, and hear from speakers about topics relevant to downtown businesses. Our speaker for the meeting will be Nikki Dewald, Assistant Director of the Marquette Chamber, who will be discussing the new community calendar, Marquette 365. Learn more at
Remember, any downtown business owner or employee is welcome to attend, so feel free to bring along a friend.
We plan on changing up our locations each month to a different downtown business, as well as having different speakers at each monthly meeting. If your business would like to host a monthly meeting, or if you have a suggestion for a speaker or a topic, please contact Tara Laase-McKinney at the Marquette Downtown Development Authority office.
