History

In this industry, it’s not just about where you’ve been. It’s also about where you’re going.

At Wyndham Jade, we’ve been helping our clients reach their goals for nearly three decades. Founded in 1983, the company initially focused on serving the travel and housing demands of the Dallas Market Center. Over the years, we have grown to meet the needs of an expanding client base, adding Corporate Travel and Incentive Program divisions, expanding our Convention Housing and Registration capabilities and investing in new technology to enhance our services and improve client experiences.

Lucy Billingsley purchased Wyndham Jade in 1993; and for more than two decades was primarily owned by its top executives. In 2017 Wyndham Jade became an integral part of MCI USA’s Association & Corporate Solutions portfolio. Though our company has grown, our goals remain the same: we’re committed to enhancing the strategic and economic impact of our clients’ association and corporate events while providing superior service.
