About Scout Local Destination Management

After 12 years working with various Destination Management Companies in Atlanta our owner decided it was time for a change. A DMC needs to be client focused with fresh content. Your DMC partner needs to understand the root of a meeting and build a consistent program based on that sound understanding. From that key mission, Elizabeth Hogan started Scout Local with a single contracted client. Now we service over 100 hands on programs per year.

What Makes Us Unique

Scout Local believes in one dedicated point of contact for each client. With support from various resources and staff our clients have the same point of contact from inception to production through final billing. Over the years we have found this method creates a seamless approach to each of our programs ultimately leading to client satisfaction. And that is our success.
