ATLANTA, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — USMotivation (USM), a full-service performance improvement and incentive marketing agency, has been named to the 2016 “CMI 25” list of the largest and most influential full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the U.S. corporate meetings and incentives industry. Now in its 10th year, it’s a unique resource for meeting managers, incentive travel executives, and procurement professionals who need outsourcing partners to orchestrate events around the globe with professionalism and creativity.
“It never stops being an honor to be included in the CMI 25 list,” said Tina Weede, President of USM. “It is thanks to our amazing people, strong performances and standout culture, as well as a deep foundation in operational excellence, that give us the ability to offer strategic engagement experiences, through incentive travel, meeting and events that get results for our clients.”
The CMI 25 list is published in the September 2016 issue of the MeetingsNet tablet magazine and digital edition, and onwww.meetingsnet.com.
“Meetings and incentives are extremely valuable to the businesses and cities that host them, to the participants who benefit from face-to-face networking and learning, and to the sponsoring organizations who get their messages delivered and their teams motivated,” said MeetingsNet Editor Sue Hatch. “The CMI 25 list is the first place many corporations turn to find independent planning companies that have the experience to handle their most important events.” As a group, the companies on the 2016 CMI 25 list executed more than 95,000 corporate meeting and incentive travel programs in 2015, representing over 11 million group room nights.
The MeetingsNet editors selected CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2015 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 2015 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources.
