For the 12th year in a row, ITA Group has made the MeetingsNet 2018 CMI 25 list, the industries only comprehensive report on the top 25 meeting and incentive management companies focused on the North American corporate market. The exclusive directory of full-service meetings and incentive management companies provides a unique resource for meeting managers, incentive travel executives and procurement professionals looking for experienced, professional outsourcing partners.
“As event management continues to rapidly evolve, major clients are demanding a partner who can deliver unique, full-service engagement solutions,” said Sarah Haines, Vice President – Event Management. “Over the past year we have grown our business to better offer fully developed, holistic solutions for live events—experiential design, creative content, stunning production, and a full range of attendee services covering everything from travel and event management to comprehensive communications.”
In 2017, ITA Group operated 339 corporate meetings, 143 incentive travel programs and booked rooms for 268,000 nights.
The CMI 25 list will be published in the September 2018 issue of the MeetingsNet tablet magazine and digital edition, and on www.meetingsnet.com. Company profiles include statics on their annual business volume, news of their latest partnerships, acquisitions and initiatives; photos of executives and colorful top events; and links to their social media and white papers.
The MeetingsNet editors selected CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2017 and the total number of room nights represented by those meetings and incentives. They also considered the number of full-time employees at each company, as well as the percentage of the company’s 2017 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources.
