The 2010 CMI 25

Welcome to Corporate Meetings & Incentives’ 2010 list of the largest and most influential North American meeting and incentive companies focused on the corporate market. Now in its fourth year, the CMI 25 is the go-to resource for meeting managers and procurement professionals researching outsourcing partners.

This year, we invited 40 meeting and incentive companies to complete the CMI 25 questionnaire—all the companies on last year’s list plus companies that had contacted us and others that we identified as likely candidates. We require each company to provide us with information on its business volume, business focus, number of employees, and other measurement data. An officer of each company has certified the accuracy of the information provided.

In choosing the final 25, our editors gave the most weight to the information that they received about a company’s total number of room nights booked and total number of corporate meetings and incentive travel programs, but they considered all the supplied information before determining the final list. The CMI 25 is focused on full-service meeting and incentive companies and does not include site-selection companies.
