Caledonia, Wisconsin (August 24, 2014) – Meetings & Incentives Worldwide (M&IW) has solidified its reputation as one of the nation’s fastest growing meeting and event management companies and included on the exclusive Inc. 5000 list. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“The 2014 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. Meetings & Incentives Worldwide achieved a 72% sales growth since 2010. M&IW provides meeting management solutions that address business challenges, mitigate risk, and drive results for their clients. As part of their growth strategy, they became a certified Women’s Business Enterprise, opened an international office to support global business, added a director-level position dedicated to strategic meetings management analytics, and increased staff for the healthcare operations and reporting team.”
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
“It is an honor to earn a position on the 2014 Inc. 5000 list and be welcomed to an exclusive club of successful growing companies,” said Jean Johnson, CMP, president and CEO of Meetings & Incentives Worldwide. “We attribute our success to the company’s focus on customer retention, new client acquisition, and strategic investments in human capital and technology innovation. We pride ourselves on our ability to help our clients implement strategic meetings management programs and continuously improve their operations.”
