Detroit is a music mecca and the birthplace of Motown. Not surprisingly, many of the planned events will feature musical acts. The opening night party will take place at the Henry Ford Museum. It will feature performances from The Contours, Mary Wilson of the Supremes, The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards and The Four Tops. The Classic, a fundraiser for the ASAE Foundation, will take place at the famed Fox Theater on Monday evening. The headline act will be Lionel Richie.

ASAE is presenting a full lineup of educational seminars with leading experts. One highlight will be opening general session speaker Josh Linkner, a business leader, venture capitalist, tech entrepreneur and author who will discuss how to increase creativity and produce results.
