“I worked with Charlotte Destination Group… during AWCI’s Convention & INTEX Expo. They assisted us in obtaining a NASCAR keynote speaker for our awards brunch and also provided elements for our closing dinner event. Our group really enjoyed both events. The CDG Staff was delightful to work with; very knowledgeable and responsive. If I have another event in Charlotte, I would definitely use CDG again!”

Senior Manager, Travel & Meeting Services
CDG has worked with numerous organizations and associations to make their conferences, conventions or trade shows a huge success. From small conferences and meetings that are self-contained in one hotel property to conventions and trade shows that utilize the convention center and multiple hotels and off-site venues, CDG can work with you on everything from breakout sessions, keynote speakers and signature attendee/exhibitor receptions to trade show floor theming and awards ceremonies.
Conferences – Large conference services include everything from site selection, production and a detailed run of show to comprehensive transportation and logistics. However, for smaller meetings, maybe assistance with airport meet and greets, booking keynote speakers and theming a ballroom for your signature reception or dinner event is all you really need. CDG can assist with making your conference details complete and your event memorable no matter how large or small.
Conventions – CDG works with organizations and associations to coordinate, manage and add elements that help boost attendance and create buzz long after the conclusion of your local, regional or national convention. Allow us to provide turnkey services including full production services, BEO management, keynote speakers, staffing, welcome receptions, award ceremonies, off-site venue selection, dine-arounds, entertainment, plus theming, design and execution of signature events.
Trade Shows – You’ve booked the convention center and are going to start selling exhibit space. But first, you need to think about trade show floor theming and specialty areas, incentives to encourage attendees to spend more time on the trade show floor, welcome receptions, airport and hotel transportation, off-site events, and area tours for attendees/attendee families. Sponsorship opportunities and networking events are critical to your annual trade show’s success. CDG looks forward to creating, organizing and managing the pieces of the show that help you achieve that success. We will lend in-market expertise, an experienced third party view, and the extra set of hands you need to achieve more than the annual status quo.
