About the CMI 25
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. 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.
