OSHKOSH, Wis. (Sept. 14, 2022) – Fox World Travel announced today that it has been named to MeetingsNet’s 2022 CMI 25 list, honoring the largest full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the U.S. corporate market.
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.”
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.
“As meetings continue to evolve and change, the focus and experience to get the job done remain the same. After 10 years on the list, we are still proud and humbled to be among the incredible organizations identified as providing exceptional meeting experiences for our guests,” said Stacy Button, operations manager for Fox World Travel. “Our team continues to excel in creativity, attention to detail and technology to create memorable moments that cater to each customer’s needs.”
Fox World Travel offers a complete line of live and virtual meeting consulting and incentive services. Since 1985, organizations of all sizes have worked with Fox to plan thousands of meetings, events and incentive programs around the world. In 2021, Fox increased its number of events by 138% and continues to grow its offerings and solutions for any and all customer needs.
“The Fox Meetings and Incentives team focuses all their attention on providing unique and innovative experiences with care, ensuring every detail is addressed and all ‘what-ifs’ are accounted for and planned for. This recognition is so meaningful to our team, who strives daily to provide the ‘wow’ moments people remember,” said Beth Marino, chief experience officer.
Members of the CMI 25 list were selected based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2021, the total number of room nights dedicated to meetings, as well as the percentage of the company’s 2021 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives. For the first time, MeetingsNet also collected data on the number of virtual and hybrid meetings executed.
The CMI 25 list is published in the September/October 2022 issue of the MeetingsNet digital edition and on www.meetingsnet.com.
