Full-service event management company makes annual list of the largest meeting and incentive travel companies for 14th straight year.

I’m so proud of our team’s ongoing commitment to creativity, innovation and flawless execution that has kept us one of the nation’s leaders for 14 years.

Meeting Expectations announced today that it has been named to MeetingsNet’s 2020 CMI 25 list, honoring the largest full-service corporate meeting and incentive travel management companies in the U.S. This is the company’s 14th consecutive appearance on the list.

“MeetingsNet CMI 25 truly reflects the most skilled and experienced companies in our industry,” said Jalene Bermudez, founding partner and president of Meeting Expectations. “I’m so proud of our team’s ongoing commitment to creativity, innovation and flawless execution that has kept us one of the nation’s leaders for 14 years."

To achieve the 2020 CMI 25, Meeting Expectations planned and executed 182 corporate meetings and 20 incentive travel programs in 2019. The dedicated site selection team booked more than 94,000 hotel room nights for client events such as the annual user conference for Manhattan Associates, franchisee conferences for Arby’s and Tropical Smoothie, and an incentive trip for Comfort Keepers’ franchisees. Additional criteria for the award include the company’s full-time staff and percent of business focused solely on event management.

The CMI 25 profiles include statistics on business volume, top customer markets, and company news to give readers a sense of the size and focus of these industry-leading firms.

“The annual report is a unique resource for corporations looking for experienced event planning partners,” said Sue Hatch, content director for MeetingsNet. “While 2020 has been an extraordinarily difficult year for the meetings and incentives industry, the experience and creativity these companies to bring to the table will serve them well as they face the challenges of creating engaging virtual meetings and developing new operating procedures for the return to face-to-face events.”

The CMI 25 list is published in the September 2020 issue of the MeetingsNet digital edition (, and on
