ACCESS DMC is a full service destination management company that specializes in creating a unique experience for each client. We can provide everything from transportation, event consulting and logistics, team building, custom tours, dine arounds, second lines, and incentive trips. Above is a photo from an event produced in 2018 for a company out of Colorado that was launching a new dessert line called Ticklebelly. Vanilla Ice was the musical talent for the event, and it was held at Republic NOLA, a fellow ILEA member's venue.

Republic NOLA
Established in 2005, Republic NOLA is known for producing legendary live shows as one of the city’s top music venues. Additionally, their dedicated Special Events team creates one-of-a-kind experiences, including corporate receptions, convention after-parties, experiential marketing activations, unforgettable intimate concerts, unique daytime meetings/presentations, and incredible weddings for fun-loving couples. The physical space is a balance of old and new; a historic 168-year-old warehouse revived with modern amenities, allowing guests to experience a piece of the past with the technology of tomorrow. The philosophy of the locally owned/operated venue is to make lasting memories by producing engaging events in a welcoming environment. Uniting fans with artists, businesses with their customers, and clients with their guests is their passion. That energy radiates through every event their team produces, and is evident in rave reviews from industry leaders like Toyota, Amazon, Essence, and Verizon Wireless to name a few.
