MORRIS MEETINGS & INCENTIVES NAMED TO MEETINGSNET’S 2022 CMI 25 LIST
The 16th annual list of the largest meeting and incentive travel companies.
Salt Lake City, Utah September 6, 2022 – Morris Meetings & Incentives 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, a leading Informa media outlet for the meetings and incentives industry, 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.
“The associates of Morris Meetings and Incentives are thrilled to be included on the 2022 CMI 25 list,” said Jay Klein, President of M-Plus. “We thank our team members and clients for making MMI one of the largest and best meetings and incentive travel companies in the world. We know that our unique, caring customer service, attention to detail and budget management (especially during difficult times) has produced nearly 100% client retention and fueled significant growth, leading us to this point.”
The CMI 25 list is published in the September/October 2022 issue of the MeetingsNet digital edition (http://www.meetingsnet.com/digital-edition), and on www.meetingsnet.com.
Morris Meetings and Incentives
Morris Meetings and Incentives was founded in 1985, as a new division of Morris Air and Morris Travel. In the past 37 years, MMI has grown to become a leader in incentive travel and meeting planning.
MMI conducts over 100 programs per year with an average size of nearly 400 travelers. In the past 5 years, we’ve conducted programs in over 40 countries. Clients come back to us year after year because they believe we’ve perfected the art of incentive travel and they see the Return on Investment of their incentive trips when they are planned by MMI.
With the acquisition of A-Plus Meetings and Incentives, Columbus Travel and investments in several other entities in the past year, creating M-Plus Global Events, the company continues to add innovative programs and technologies to serve its clients even better and reduce costs at the same time.
The MeetingsNeteditors selected the 2022 CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2021 and the total number of room nights represented by those events. For the first time, MeetingsNet also collected data on the number of virtual and hybrid meetings executed and considered it along with the number of full-time employees at each company, the percentage of the company’s 2021 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives, and other data.
