Growing out of a grassroots nonprofit in 2006, then joining forces with D:hive in 2012, DXF is now an independent program of the Downtown Detroit Partnership. It has become a leading resource for both visitors and existing Detroiters to discover and experience the city.

 The Detroit Experience Factory uses interactive experiences and innovative resources to help newcomers and locals alike get more connected to the people, places and projects in Detroit. It operates Detroit’s community based Welcome Center and has taken over 70,000 people on experiential tours of Detroit since it launched in 2006.
