Founded by three friends in late
1999, each year the Mega Meet has continued to grow. The first ever
Great Lakes Mega Meet was held in April 2000 in Hall B of the Novi Expo
Center, in Novi, Michigan. In 2001, the GLMM was moved to it's
now traditional Mother's Day weekend, and into Hall A for more
space! Also in 2001, the first Ohio Mega Meet was held in October in Akron, OH.
A second Ohio Mega Meet was held in
Cincinnati in September 2002. In 2003, the GLMM
was moved into Main Hall to accommodate the explosive growth. In
2004, the GLMM celebrated it's 5th Annual Event.
In 2006 the GLMM moved to Novi's new facility - the Rock Financial
Showplace - less than a mile from the former Novi Expo Center! We
look forward to welcoming 8500+ attendees to our 9th annual
Great Lakes Mega Meet in May, 2008!
In 2003 SMM held it's first
ever Mega Cruise, and it's first of many
held at resort locations throughout Michigan.
