Kansas City’s Only Accredited DMC

Our Story

Founded in 1989, Agenda: USA has transformed itself into Kansas City’s largest and only Accredited Destination Management Company (ADMC). After identifying a demand for group logistics in Kansas City, Alton Hagen began offering destination management services to the meeting and conventions industry, under the name Agenda: Kansas City.

Early on, Alton recognized the need for a higher level of chauffeured transportation services than was currently available in the metro area. So he established the company’s own fleet of chauffeured vehicles operating under the name Agenda: USA. In November of 2011, Agenda: Kansas City & Agenda: USA united under one name to be known today as Agenda: USA, Inc.

Headquartered in Mission, Kansas, Agenda: USA has a full team of experienced event production and transportation management professionals.

From event production and group logistics to convention services and ground transportation, Agenda: USA’s team works to accomplish your goals.

Agenda: USA has set the standard for excellence as Kansas City’s award-winning and accredited Destination Management Company. We’ll take care of everything from creative program design and unique special event production to transportation logistics and corporate social responsibility programs.

About Our Accreditation

To be an Accredited Destination Management Company (ADMC), the business must meet multiple stringent requirements as determined and administered by the Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI). ADMEI is a membership association for Destination Management Companies and serves as the premier source for education, standards, and practices within the Destination Management Industry. 

ADMCs like Agenda: USA are recognized for their high level of professionalism. Our company first became accredited in 2008 and we’ve made it a high priority to maintain that accreditation ever since. We want potential clients to rest assured we have the knowledge, experience and skillset to help them orchestrate a successful event.

Client Feedback

"This is a very long overdue message to thank Agenda USA for many years of outstanding service, initially to me as a corporate client and later as a personal client. I first used Agenda USA in my corporate role at Sprint (now T-Mobile) in approximately 2000. The service they provided at that time, and through 23 years of corporate and personal transportation situations since then, have consistently exceeded my expectations. Timeliness, car cleanliness, driver helpfulness, reservation services, billing and more have been well beyond that which I would have expected. I can recommend Agenda USA without hesitation!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with this group of people! Alton, Bruce and Karl are truly great professionals. Having only three months to prepare for our large annual meeting, AGENDA USA came to the rescue in helping us out with all transportation aspects of our meeting (i.e. airport transfers, event shuttles, charter bus service, etc.). They went “over and beyond” to meet last-minute requests or needs. Their communication, customer service and professionalism was absolutely in every aspect 5 Stars. We have started using AGENDA USA for all of our transportation needs and highly recommend them whether it’s for personal or business.  Thank you so much for helping me look like a “Rock Star”!"

"Agenda: USA did a great job.  I would not hesitate to recommend your company to any of my colleagues around the country who have an event in the Kansas City area.  From the first call through the final invoice, everything was managed professionally, in a timely manner, and with creativity and courtesy.   All the creative elements, decor, lighting, were superior, better than anticipated.  The Patrick Lentz band was terrific, crowd-pleasing, and in sync.  They were what I would expect in NYC!  Your responsiveness to our transportation needs – including the pop-up transport we added upon arrival – was much appreciated.  Everything was managed exceptionally well.  I hope to be able to work with your team in the future! Thank you for your partnership.""

"I just want to drop you a note to THANK YOU and your staff for such a wonderful Christmas Light Tour last night! The van/bus with the facing seats was amazing and the 3 little girls (6 years old) kept saying how awesome it was 😊. It was so clean and comfortable and they loved the lights too. We all really enjoyed the bus/van itself… Karl, our driver, was AWESOME! He was very accommodating and so nice!! … As always, Agenda USA, provided exceptional service and we truly had a wonderful time creating memories with our families."

We had a BLAST! Absolutely everything was perfect! Our driver was so nice … my friends have already booked Agenda USA for the concert they are going to. I told them about how the company is veteran owned, and they love that. Plus, we loved Jason (chauffeur)! It was awesome.
