CHICAGO – September 6, 2022 – BCD Meetings & Events (BCD M&E) announced today that it has been named to MeetingsNet’s 2022 CMI 25 list, honoring the largest full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the U.S. corporate market.
The annual report from MeetingsNet is a key resource for corporations looking for experienced event-planning partners. In aggregate, the companies on the 2022 CMI 25 list executed more than 56,000 corporate meetings and almost 500 incentive travel programs in 2021, and those events used more than 2.69 million room nights at hotels and resorts.
“Of course, 2021 was a difficult year for these leading experts in bringing corporate groups together for training and education, recognition, and networking,” said Sue Hatch, content director for MeetingsNet. “Yet, those numbers are impressive for a year when meetings, when they happened at all, were often virtual or severely scaled back. The grit and innovation of these companies during difficult times is impressive and will serve their clients well during the fast-paced return to face-to-face events we’re seeing for 2022, 2023, and beyond.”
The CMI 25 profiles include statistics on business volume (including virtual events for the first time this year), top customer markets, and company news to give readers a sense of the size and focus of these industry-leading firms.
