Hosts Global announced its expansion into the Lone Star State with the opening of Hosts Texas, a full-service Destination Management Company (DMC) dedicated to producing group programs, including conventions, meetings, incentive programs and special events in Austin and San Antonio.
“Hosts Global has a reputation of keeping a pulse on the industry, listening to our customers and expanding into regions where our clients need us,” said Marty MacKay, DMCP, president of Hosts’ global alliance of DMCs. “We’re exhilarated that our newest offices will allow clients to seamlessly craft thrilling experiences in two of Texas’ most charismatic cities.”
Michelle Crosby, CMP, DMCP and current president-elect of ADMEI will serve as general manager of the new Hosts Texas DMC and will continue to oversee its growth. Crosby previously served as director of global sales for Hosts Global and has more than 20 years of experience working in hotels and destination management.
“Hosts Texas is primed to activate amazing destination experiences showcasing all these remarkable cities have to offer,” said Crosby. “We’re here to help our customers with innovative group experiences that leverage Austin’s vivacious culture and San Antonio’s colorful history, with plenty of delicious flavors in between!”
Hosts Texas is now the eighth office location opened and operated by Hosts Global, joining Southern California, Chicago, Washington D.C., Baltimore, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Seattle. Hosts’ global reputation stems from its 60-year history and success of its 300+ current destinations available through a combination of owned and hand-selected DMC members worldwide.
“This continues to be a thrilling time and one of the most successful years for us,” said Jennifer Patino, DMCP, chief executive officer of Hosts Global. “This heralds Hosts’ newest chapter in delivering high-touch service, local expertise and boundless creativity to today’s planners.”
