CalendarNewsletter ABOUT US

Destination Tahoe Meetings & Events was created by two local experienced DMC professionals who recognized a need for change and innovative thinking amongst DMC's in the region. With their expertise, they are redefining destination management in the area. Destination Tahoe Meetings & Events provides truly exceptional service while producing unique programs that exceed client expectations.

Our Founders:

Lisa DeLeon, DMCP, Co-Owner & Senior Vice President of Sales
Lisa heads up the sales team. She has spent the last 13 years in the destination management industry in Lake Tahoe and is proud to have grown up throughout the Sierra Nevada. Lisa is passionate about sharing local Lake Tahoe experiences with clientele in the incentive, corporate and association markets. Before she headed up the sales team, she gained extensive experience operating programs, giving her a unique insight into the needs and objectives of her clientele.

Lisa is the only Destination Management Certified Professional (DMCP) in Northern Nevada, having earned this designation through the Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI). Additionally, she serves on the Certification and Accreditation Board (CAB) for ADMEI where she helps to set the organization's standards and policies. Lisa is also the current Vice-President of the Reno-Tahoe Chapter of NACE (National Association of Catering and Events).

When she isn't working, Lisa loves hitting the slopes, hiking and of course, spending time with her loving husband and three children.

Rhea Dira, Co-Owner and Senior Vice President of Operations
Rhea heads up the operations team. A Lake Tahoe native, Rhea's background includes over fifteen years experience in the hospitality and destination management industries and a degree in Business Administration. She has spent the last ten years in the destination management industry as a Senior Operations Manager where she has managed over 500 successful programs and continues to share her knowledge, creativity, and professionalism with all of her clients. She maintains exceptional relationships with our vendors and hospitality partners to deliver spectacular results every time.
