Michigan DECA, in cooperation with the Palace Sports and Entertainment, Inc., is thrilled to announce our annual Michigan DECA Sports and Entertainment Marketing Workshop. Michigan DECA members will have a one of a kind opportunity to meet professionals who work behind the scenes for the Detroit Pistons. Guest speakers will cover many aspects of the industry, including marketing, sales, communications, public relations, internships and more.   At the end of the day members will be guests of the Palace as they watch a Detroit Pistons game.   Register early to ensure that your chapter members won’t miss out on this awesome opportunity!
