Amy Ingalls, CMP
Director, Meetings & Events @Transamerica
Amy Ingalls has 25+ years in the meetings and events industry. Before joining Transamerica in 2021, she spent 3 years in television - where she got her start in events - and then 3 years in radio. She lives in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with her husband Bob and two very spoiled Boxer dogs. During her spare time she volunteers with 2 local non-profit organizations. Amy is a graduate of Iowa State University where she earned a BFA in Graphic Design. Amy’s favorite part of her job is when she can take a step back during an event and watch all the attendees enjoying the experience she created.
Taylor Laws, CMP, DCMP
Regional Director of Sales @Destination South Meetings & Events
Taylor Laws, CMP, DMCP was raised in Wichita Falls, Texas, but it did not take long for her to fall in love with the city of Atlanta. A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Taylor moved to Atlanta to work at the Hyatt Regency where she gained invaluable hotel experience in both the events and sales departments. With hotel know-how under her belt, a passion for events, and a love for her new home-town, it was a natural progression for Taylor to move into destination management.

Taylor’s vibrant personality and hospitality towards everyone she meets makes her the ideal Director of Sales for Destination South’s team.
