ATLANTA, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Meeting Expectations today announced that it has been named to the first annual "CMI 25" list of the industry's largest and most influential full-service independent meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the corporate market. Compiled by Penton Media's Corporate Meetings & Incentives(R) magazine, the leading information source for the $40.3 billion corporate meetings and events industry, the CMI 25 provides an essential resource for corporate executives and meeting professionals seeking partners for outsourcing all or parts of their programs. The CMI 25 appears in the September issue of Corporate Meetings & Incentives and is available on the Web at http://www.meetingsnet.com.
"The CMI 25 list represents the leading companies in the industry, based on extensive research by our staff," said Barbara Scofidio, editor of Corporate Meetings & Incentives. "As outsourcing of meeting and incentive travel program planning becomes increasingly important to corporate America, the CMI 25 have become the 'go-to' service providers for executives in many sectors."
Celebrating 15 years in business, Meeting Expectations has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years, providing a range of meeting and association management services to a diverse client base across a broad spectrum of industries. The company continues to introduce value-added management solutions such as creative integrated marketing campaigns and advanced technology solutions to enhance the client experience and provide full-service, 'one-stop shop' capabilities.
"Being chosen as part of the CMI 25 is a great achievement for Meeting Expectations and truly showcases the commitment to excellence shown by our employees each and every day," said Brian Meyer, president of Meeting Expectations. "This year we celebrate 15 years in the industry, and we will keep striving to exceed the expectations of our clients."
The magazine's editors selected CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2006 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.
