• Workshop Joined ACCESS Brand

    POSTED January 6, 2015
ACCESS Destination Services will now be represented in Colorado with the addition of Heidi Brown and Danielle Mason Phippen, owners of the Destination Management Company Workshop. Based in Denver, this company will be known as ACCESS Colorado in the ACCESS brand.
"We are excited to have Heidi and Danielle join the ACCESS team,” said Chris Lee, CEO of ACCESS Destination Services. “They are charismatic leaders, known for their commitment to service and creating unique experiences for clients. 
Together Mason Phippen and Brown have 30 years of experience in the industry and consistently focus on creating distinctive events for their customers.
"ACCESS is comprised of like-minded DMC owners who share a passion for our industry and the clients we serve, and it was these very owners and their teams that convinced us that joining ACCESS was absolutely the perfect choice for our company," said Mason Phippen. 
Currently ACCESS has 15 offices across North America.

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  


Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
