The Hutton Group Debuts New Destination Management Company Serving Pittsburgh and Beyond
Pittsburgh-based The Hutton Group–Inspired Meetings & Events, a women-owned and operated boutique company specializing in meetings, venues and hotels, debuted a new destination management company (DMC) as an extension of its parent company.
Announced on Aug. 23, the new DMC comprises experienced destination designers offering travel and ground services, VIP experiences, dine-arounds at culinary gems, tours and outings and unique venue procurement. It can also provide curated experiences, including teambuilding and corporate social responsibility projects, custom event design, amenities and attendee appreciation, philanthropy and legacy opportunities, as well as one-of-a-kind interactive experiences.
Designed to streamline the event planning process and bring client visions to life in Pittsburgh, the tri-state region and across the U.S., the new DMC is a first for the Pittsburgh region, according to The Hutton Group officials.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Pittsburgh region, offering everything from program design, logistics management, supplier sourcing, on-site coordination and administrative services to every client,” said Jaime Budesa, vice president of services for The Hutton Group–Inspired Meetings & Events. “Most importantly, we want to inspire new life experiences for visitors by connecting them to the local community.
She continued, “Our focus is to expose individuals to a culture and immerse them in opportunity, all while bringing economic benefit to the people that make the city a great place to live and thrive. It is about creating memories and ensuring local businesses in that city are involved and supported in this venture.”
According to Pittsburgh client Maggie Cooper from Tri-State Capital Bank, who has been a client of The Hutton Group–Inspired Meetings & Events for several years, the company has helped her plan and execute a wide range of successful events, including company-wide virtual and in-person sales meetings, holiday parties and goodie boxes for her team.
“The [Hutton] team is always diligent and thorough throughout the planning process and can quickly pivot, ensuring every event is a success,” Cooper said. “The positive feedback we receive after each event reflects their hard work, creativity and ability to deliver.”
