About the CMI 25
The CMI 25 list is published in the September 2018 issue of the MeetingsNet tablet magazine and digital edition (http://www.meetingsnet.com/digital-edition), and on http://www.meetingsnet.com.

The MeetingsNet editors selected CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2017 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 2017 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources
