OMAHA, Neb. (September 6, 2019) – Travel and Transport announced today that it has been named to MeetingsNet’s 2019 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, a digital magazine, website, and live event producer dedicated to the meetings and incentives industry, is a unique resource for corporations looking for experienced meeting planning partners. As a group, the companies on the 2019 CMI 25 list executed almost 150,000 corporate meetings and nearly 7,000 incentive travel programs in 2018, and together those events booked over 24 million room nights at hotels and resorts around the world.
“Successful meetings management demands creativity, attention to detail, and top technology, and the CMI 25 companies have proven themselves to have the focus and experience needed to get the job done,” said MeetingsNet Content Director Sue Hatch. “The profiles of the CMI 25 include statistics on business volume, top customer markets, as well as company news, giving readers a sense of the focus, strengths, and size of these large third-parties.”
“When you partner with Travel and Transport, whether for your travel needs or your meetings and events, our approach is to always listen to our customers in order to meet and exceed their expectations,” said Travel and Transport’s CEO Kevin O’Malley. “This recognition as a leader in the corporate meetings and events industry, emphasizes the importance of our approach – empowering our people to do our best for our clients.”
Travel and Transport is a global travel management company that was built, not around products and services, but around customer wants and needs. Meetings and events fit seamlessly within a company’s overall travel policy providing expertise that permeates every function, every position and every level of the company.
“At Travel and Transport, there are two things that have remained constant within our company: our unwavering promise to our customers to be their trustworthy partner and our steadfast determination to always be ahead of the industry, finding solutions today for tomorrow’s challenges,” said O’Malley.
The MeetingsNet editors selected the 2019 CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2018 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 2018 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources.
