Event Travel Management (ETM) Named to MeetingsNet’s 2022 CMI 25 List
The 16th annual list of the largest meeting and incentive travel companies
Event Travel Management (ETM), the meetings and events division of Corporate Travel Management (CTM), has been named to MeetingsNet’s 2022 CMI 25 list. The annual list honors the largest full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the US corporate market.
“We are thrilled to again be named to MeetingNet’s CMI 25 list,” said Tami Reier, CMP, CMM, Senior Vice President & General Manager, ETM North America. “This honor recognizes ETM’s continued commitment to our customers in hosting safe meetings, including emergency responses services, consulting solutions, and ‘bubble’ event programs during a shifting time for the events industry.”
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.”
In 2021, the ETM team focused its efforts on emergency response services (hotel sourcing and housing management for clients in need of quick-turnaround emergency response assistance such as natural disasters and COVID-19 worker shortages), consulting solutions (rebuilding SMM programs or helping build new programs in a scalable way including service delivery, meeting technology, and workflow consultation as part of “just-in-time” resources), and “bubble” programs (allowing customers to safely travel and meet during the pandemic through hotel buy-outs to ensure safe destinations).
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 MeetingsNet editors 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.
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. ETM’s listing can be found here.
