Our roots


Our roots began with a dream that stemmed from three women who were already well on their way moving the needle and making waves in the hospitality industry. With over 75 combined years of hospitality and meetings expertise, these three women dreamt about a day when they would forge their own path together and create a unique company that would support, uplift, and empower clients - and embody a culture that echoed this vision.

With their stacked experience, savvy smarts, and genuine courage - Angele du Passage, Ashley McCoy, and Kathan Dearman set out to do just that. In May 2015, Cypress Planning Group became a reality and the power of three women and what they saw possible began to flourish.

Hi, we're Cypress Planning Group.
Soon, the foundation began to grow

As the dream became a reality, Cypress Planning Group's roots began to take hold.

Today, Cypress Planning Group is a thriving
site selection and meeting services business.

So, what do we really do? In simple terms: we source hotels and we plan meetings. But our reach extends so much further beyond this. 

We source hotels with a superb fit for your group. We negotiate hotel contracts with an incredible knowledge and respect of the hospitality industry - which allows you to rest easy knowing that you're getting the

best deal. 

We plan and support meetings in many different capacities. We manage your room blocks. We handle exhibitor and sponsor management. We're on-site to ensure you're able to focus on what you actually need to.

We believe in the importance of meetings. And we believe in the power of storytelling. Let us help you tell your story and bring your mission to life.

Like a cypress tree’s ability to weather the storm, Cypress Planning Group is well adapted for any condition. We bring our deep roots, strength, and stability to every project.


We're rooted in your success.
