Meetings & Incentives Worldwide (M&IW), a global event management and strategy firm, is pleased to announce it has been named to MeetingsNet’s 2020 CMI 25 list for the thirteenth consecutive year. The CMI 25 list honors the largest full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the U.S. corporate market.
Meetings & Incentives Worldwide has been named to the 14th annual list of the largest meeting and incentive travel companies.
“It’s a privilege to celebrate the CMI 25 companies, all of which had great success bringing groups together for training and education, recognition, networking, and more in 2019,” said Sue Hatch, content director for MeetingsNet. “While 2020 has been an extraordinarily difficult year for the meetings and incentives industry, the experience and creativity these companies to bring to the table will serve them well as they face the challenges of creating engaging virtual meetings and developing new operating procedures for the return to face-to-face events.”
“We are honored to once again be a part of this exclusive community,” said Tina Madden, Co-CEO and Chief Customer Officer. “We’ve been actively managing and producing virtual events, team-building experiences along with gifting and rewards programs during what can be described as one of the most difficult times our industry has experienced. We are grateful for our valued clients, industry partners, and dedicated team members.”
In the past six months, M&IW has focused on moving events forward. They launched an incentives and recognition consulting service, doubled down on SMM solutions for enterprise clients, focused on emergency preparedness plans, and extended event design services to include physical distancing protocols with 3D diagramming software. M&IW was also named a finalist for two Cvent Excellence Awards and the first technology partner to showcase Cvent’s new virtual attendee hub at their 2020 M&IW Summit.
The MeetingsNet editors selected the 2020 CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2019 and the total number of room nights represented by those events. They also considered the number of full-time employees at each company, as well as the percentage of the company’s 2019 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources.
