“As a whole, this year’s CMI 25 companies handled more than 58,000 corporate meetings and incentive programs in 2009, which represents more than 6.5 million room nights across the U.S. and the world,” said Barbara Scofidio, editor of Corporate Meetings & Incentives. “Our annual report is unique to this industry, and meeting managers and procurement professionals turn to our research year-round for information on these important partners.”
“We are proud to have been on this list each year since its inception in 2007,” said Jeff Price, CEO of Experient. “This distinction recognizes our scope of experience and our commitment to bringing innovative solutions to our clients in this important industry segment.”
The magazine’s editors select CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2009 and the total number of room nights represented by those meetings and incentives. They also evaluated the number of full-time employees at each company, as well as the percentage of the company’s revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives, versus association meetings or other sources.
