Our roots


Cypress Planning Group began its journey in 2015, when Angele du Passage, Ashley McCoy, and Kathan Dearman set out on a path driven by a vision to revolutionize the world of meetings. Our founders, each with over 25 years of experience in the hotel industry, dared to tread the road less traveled. Leaving behind their established careers, they were determined to create their own brand — bringing extensive hotel knowledge and a genuine passion for the meetings industry to build — a company that supports and elevates their clients’ meetings, and provides an empowering culture that uplifts women and others in the industry.

We know meetings.

Over the years, Cypress Planning Group flourished, and we found passionate planners and meeting professionals with similar zeal and expertise — who are true rockstars in their field. As we continue to grow, so does our dynamic team of experienced professionals who enhance our clients' meetings by providing a unique perspective.

We're dedicated to building a company and culture that blends our wealth of hospitality expertise, meetings knowledge, and strong partner relationships to elevate our clients’ meetings and the industry.

We believe in the importance of meetings. Understanding that each meeting, conference, tradeshow, convention, and event is different – we bring tailored services to align with your objectives. Our mission is to not only manage and execute your program, but to exceed your expectations, leaving you to focus on what matters most.


Rooted in your success, we bring your meetings, mission, and organization to the next level.

Let us help you do more.
