Minneapolis, 05 September 2019: CWT M&E, the global meetings and events division of CWT, once again lands on MeetingsNet’s CMI 25 list for 2019. The list recognizes the largest full-service and incentive travel management companies focused on the North American corporate market.
With four new major client wins, adding 3,000 new meetings, hiring 50 more people since late 2018, and recording 10% growth year-over-year, CWT M&E continues to demonstrate why it’s one of the biggest players in the industry.
“Being named to the CMI 25 list for the 10th consecutive year is truly a great honor and recognition of our continued growth and agility as an organization,” said Beau Ballin, Vice President, Commercial Leader, North America, CWT Meetings & Events. “We’re seeing the dividends from investments we’ve made into providing creative, engaging events for our clients and developing industry-leading strategic meetings management solutions that leverage innovative technology.
The companies included in the 2019 CMI 25 have been selected by MeetingsNet editors based on the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2018; the total number of room nights represented by those meetings and incentives; the number of full-time employees at each company; as well as the percentage of the company’s 2018 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources.
The CMI 25 announcement comes at the heels of other recognitions CWT M&E has received this year, including a SITE Crystal Award for Most Impactful Effort Toward Corporate Social Responsibility, as well as being named a finalist for this year’s upcoming C&IT Global Agency of the Year Award, which CWT M&E won last year.
