Wayne State president, city and business leaders announce Detroit Homecoming initiative to attract former residents

The city’s business community is looking for business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities and movers and shakers with ties to the city to come back and help rebuild the D. A host of local leaders, including Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson, Mayor Mike Duggan, Chris Ilitch of Ilitch Holdings and Keith Crain of Crain Communications, announced their Detroit Homecoming event at an early Monday morning press conference at the Lowe Campbell Ewald advertising agency by Ford Field. The invitation-only Detroit Homecoming will be held Sept. 17-19 with a pull-out-all-the-stops agenda that includes tours throughout the city, a concert at Chene Park, dinner at the David Whitney Building and the Globe Building Outdoor Adventure & Discovery Center.
