Kymberly Brantigan, President
The Charlotte Destination Group

Please describe your business and the services you provide.
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!

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 your business leading to return on objective, experience and investment.

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 and exceed your expectations.

Do you have any other roles or participate in any other committees or organizations that you would like to mention?
Charlotte Chamber Annual Meeting Planning Committee, Charlotte Regional Partnership Golf Tournament Planning Committee, participate in Charlotte Green Works events, E4 Carolinas Economic Development Task Force, Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation Promise Circle.

Are there any “green” accomplishments from the past year, either personal or business, you would like to highlight?
International Special Event Society's 2015 Crown Jewel Award for "Best Green Event"

Does your company have any “buy green”, recycling or other environmental policies you would like to mention?
Although our office building does not offer recycling for tenants, we provide bins and personally haul off recyclables as needed each month.

What inspires you as an individual to participate in GreenWorks?
We should all take climate change and environment issues seriously, and do our part to reduce waste and our carbon footprint. As a small business owner and Charlotte Chamber Board of Advisors member, serving on the GreenWorks board and events committee is one way I can contribute to sustainability initiatives in our community.
