“Our presence on the CMI 25 continues to be a great honor and we are proud to be recognized for the eighth consecutive year,” says Tina Madden, CPA, CFO and Partner of Meetings & Incentives Worldwide.
“In 2015, we increased our workforce by 25 percent, expanded our team in the UK, and added satellite offices in the southwest and southeast regions. As strategic programs mature, both within corporate meetings and incentive travel, there is an increased emphasis on end-to-end technology that links an organizations’ analytics and business intelligence. We restructured our strategic account solutions with the addition of a new vice president and key director positions so that as more of our clients transition to their own platforms, we are able to consult with them on meeting management technology optimization.”
“Meetings and incentives are extremely valuable to the businesses and cities that host them, to the participants who benefit from face-to-face networking and learning, and to the sponsoring organizations who get their messages delivered and their teams motivated,” said MeetingsNet Editor Sue Hatch.
“The CMI 25 list is the first place many corporations turn to find independent planning companies that have the experience to handle their most important events.” As a group, the companies on the 2016 CMI 25 list executed more than 95,000 corporate meeting and incentive travel programs in 2015, representing over 11 million group room nights.
