MGME named to MeetingsNet’s 2023 CMI 25 List; Top Independent Meeting Planning Companies in North America for the 16th Consecutive Year

MGME announced today that it has been named to MeetingsNet’s 2023 CMI 25 list, recognizing the largest full-service meeting and incentive-travel management companies focused on the U.S. corporate market.

The annual report from MeetingsNet, a digital magazine and website dedicated to the meetings and incentives industry, is the go-to resource for corporations looking for experienced planning partners. In aggregate, the companies on the 2023 CMI 25 list reported executing close to 85,000 corporate meetings and nearly 3,000 incentive travel programs in 2022.

“We are honored to be recognized on MeetingsNet's prestigious CMI 25 List for the 16th consecutive year. This achievement is a testament to the dedication, creativity, and hard work of our team. We remain committed to delivering exceptional experiences and innovative solutions for our clients, and this recognition only fuels our passion to continue exceeding expectations in the ever-evolving world of meetings and events."

President & CEO, MGME

The MeetingsNet editors selected the 2023 CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of in-person meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2022 and the total number of room nights represented by those meetings and incentives. They also considered the number of full-time employees, the number of virtual meetings executed, and the percentage of the company’s 2022 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources.


“The volume of meetings handled in 2022 was below levels seen pre-pandemic, but represented an amazing rebound from 2021. For example, the median number of room nights booked for meetings and incentive travel jumped from 26,761 in 2021 to 138,894 in 2022. These companies are not just survivors—they’re growing, innovating, and building partnerships to drive success in today’s new market conditions. The CMI 25 report includes statistics on business volume, company news briefs, and executive commentary, giving readers a sense of the focus, strengths, and size of these major third-party firms."
