MGME celebrates making MeetingsNet CMI 25 for the 14th consecutive year

MeetingsNet, the leading digital magazine and website focused on the meetings and incentives industry, has named McVeigh Global Meetings and Events, LLC (MGME) to its 2021 CMI 25 list. The CMI 25 list is the meeting industry’s only all-inclusive report of the largest and most influential full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies, focused on the North America corporate market. Historically, this list boasts company metrics such as statistics on the number of meetings executed, rooms booked and staff size. Not this year - instead, the pandemic's devastation to our industry shifted focus to recent developments and thought leadership. There is plenty of both for MGME...

Designs must be purposeful, thoughtful, and well planned to keep focus and deliver business goals.”
