Agenda: USA has expanded into Nashville!
Jul 22, 2022
Mission, Kan., (July 21, 2022) – Agenda: USA, Kansas City’s first and only accredited Destination Management Company (DMC), has announced the opening of a second office in Nashville, Tennessee. The company’s Nashville office serves as a resource to corporate event planners and meeting planners bringing clients and customers to Music City.
Although Agenda: USA has served hundreds of national and international clients over the course of its 33 years of operation, Nashville is the first official office outside of Kansas City.
The Nashville office will be managed by Pat Owings, a seasoned hospitality industry professional who has earned both Certified Meeting Planner (CMP) and Destination Management Certified Professional (DMCP) designations. Owings has deep expertise in all aspects of operating a DMC including event production, ground transportation and logistics management.
Cory Brooks will serve as Director of Sales and Business Development for Agenda: USA in Nashville. Brooks has also earned her CMP designation and has an extensive background in meeting planning, entertainment, event production and ground transportation. Both Owings and Brooks are active members of a number of hospitality industry associations including the Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI) and Meeting Planners International (MPI).
Owings and Brooks will be joined by Senior Event Manager Katy Collins, Sales Manager Mindy Powell-Hardy, Operations Coordinator Courtenay Aman and Sales Associate Jennifer Turrill. All members of the Agenda: USA-Nashville team have extensive experience in the destination management industry.
Agenda: USA is very pleased that Hosts Global Destination Services has selected the Nashville office as its affiliate.
Alton Hagen, CMP, DMCP, Agenda: USA’s Founder and General Manager, commented, “I’m beyond thrilled to announce the expansion of our operations to the Nashville area. After two enormously challenging years for the hospitality industry, we’re seeing a huge demand for quality DMC services and I believe now is the right time for Agenda: USA to take this step. Nashville has become a leading destination for conferences and corporate events. I am extremely confident that Pat, Cory and the Nashville team will do an outstanding job of introducing Agenda: USA’s wide-ranging capabilities – and high standards – to clients in need of DMC services in the Nashville area.”
