Hosts: David Adler, Beth Kormanik

Guest: Tony Lorenz


In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, and Beth Kormanik, editor in chief of BizBash, hear from Tony Lorenz, C.E.O. of AlliedPRA, a destination management company with presence in 30 locations in North America. The company has been growing through acquisitions in major markets like New York and Nashville, and Lorenz says it’s looking for new targets. Lorenz discusses why D.M.C.s are crucial for planners who work on events out of their home states—and why the services may not get the respect they deserve. He dives into the experiences a company like AlliedPRA offers, including transportation management, activities and tours, backstage passes, and more—and how those services can enhance an event or meeting experience.
