Exceeding Expectations: CMI 25 List-Maker for 14 Straight Years

For the 14th time, MeetingsNet named Meeting Expectations to the 2020 CMI 25, the most respected list honoring the largest full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies serving the U.S. corporate market.

“The 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 commitment to creativity, innovation, and flawless execution that has kept us one of the nation’s leaders since the list’s inception.”

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, the franchisee conference for Tropical Smoothie Cafe, and an incentive trip for Comfort Keepers’ franchisees.  Additional criteria for the award include the company’s full-time staff and the percent of business focused solely on event management.

According to 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 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 of event management companies appears in the September 2020 issue of the MeetingsNet digital edition or download Meeting Expectations’ full profile here.
