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 (DMC). 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.

"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.""
