Bay Pointe Inn Records 51% First Quarter growth for 2011 one year after opening the Fireside Banquet & Conference Center

Bay Pointe Inn “One of Michigan’s Top Resorts” has announced record first quarter growth for 2011 only one year after opening the Fireside Banquet & Conference Center.

The 80-seat Banquet & Conference Center marked the Resort’s second expansion since 2008.

In the first year, the Resort has hosted over 150 events in the Fireside Room with local, national and international guests. The addition of the Lakefront Event Pavilion in 2008 has resulted in a 400% increase in wedding demand.

“The Fireside Banquet & Conference Center has exceeded our expectations accommodating increased year-round demand from corporate and social groups. The ideal balance between location, technology, service and design has been well received by our guests. Bay Pointe Inn has achieved our objective of being West Michigan’s Premier Corporate and Social Event Venue,” Michael Powers, Owner, said. “The opening of the nearby Gun Lake Casino has complemented our growth by offering high energy entertainment to our guests.”

The increased business has produced the need for an additional ten year round jobs and 25 additional seasonal positions while boosting the local economy. The Fireside Banquet & Conference Center features seating for up to 80, the latest in meeting technology, 12’ Grand Fireplace, lakefront patio and designer inspired décor. Bay Pointe Inn is a full service resort conveniently located midway between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.
