Our Concept

Higher Standards. The Charlotte Destination Group (CDG) is Charlotte’s preferred corporate meeting, event and destination management company. Our expertise lies in customizing meetings, conferences and events that have a business focus, working only with companies and non-profits. We leave the wedding and social event planning to others!
No two companies, or events, are alike. At CDG, we do not package “cookie-cutter” events. Exceptional experiences begin with understanding the unique culture of the organizations we work with and the business objectives of the programs they want to execute. From planning to execution, we customize the many facets of each event to ensure that we align with each client’s stated goals, and to provide long-lasting, memorable results.

Our Approach

We take a marketing approach. What really differentiates CDG is that, in addition to meeting and event planning, we have extensive corporate marketing and public relations experience. CDG not only provides event, meeting and destination management services designed to positively impact your guests, we work with each client to develop innovative ideas and solutions that positively impact their business leading to return on objective, experience and investment. Please see the motorsports/sports section of our website to see how our leadership’s involvement in motorsports marketing with Fortune 500 companies, multi-million dollar NASCAR sponsorships and celebrity athletes has conditioned us to think creatively in terms of corporate objectives, branding, messaging and return. 

Our Results

Award winning, well-connected and preferred. CDG has worked hard to earn the confidence and trust of its clients, the various industries it represents and the communities where we have a footprint – not where we leave a footprint!  
Whether you’re looking to improve meeting productivity, more effectively communicate organizational messaging, completely “wow” attendees with a special event or better capitalize on participation with a conference, convention or trade show, CDG will innovate with you and your team to develop and execute a strategic agenda. We will gain insight into your event, your audience and your objectives to provide a program that is tailored to meet your budget, exceed your expectations and achieve your desired results!
